    I mean he is so slow with strikes and that’s why Silva dropped his hands because he didn’t want to wrestle a wrestler and had no respect for Weidman’s hands! I think Chris’ biggest problem is lack of speed in his punches. Do you agree?

    trilogies should only happen when its 1-1


    e.g Chuck giving Tito was a third fight was dumb as hell. imo Now Tito has a KO over him.

    Anderson was intimidated by the Chris while the reverse was not true. Chris said during staredowns that he wasnt afraid of him. That made a difference. I think he had champion fatigue like GSP too. Seemed relieved to lose. Part two was just brutal. Mic check, one, two.

    Normally I would agree, except if the rematch ends like this...

    Anderson was just never that good. He had occasionally impressive wins over weak competition. The competition caught up and he was exposed.

    I’m just saying that Chris will never see the belt again with those slow hands

    Anderson was never that good. He’s not Roy Jones and Weidman isnt Forrest Griffon.

    Both Gastelum and Jacare would've beaten Silva.

    Hendo and Vitor were better than either of them, and Andy killed them. I swear, this is the only sport where fighters of yesteryear depreciate.

    I know only maximum few fights ended like that.
    It was a good check but still.
    In first fight Silva tried to avoid ground game keeping his hands very low and at the end he avoided it.
    But he was too cocky and even slow Weidman was about to hit him clean.
    Second fight Silva wasnt cocky but still Weidman knocked him down in first round and he was checking leg kicks. He didnt check kicks in first fight so he surprised Silva.
    Weidman is an elite grappler and wrestler, his striking is very good as well but speed disadvantage is his biggest weakness.
    Guys like Weidman, Rockhold and Romero should fight at 205.

    if only Silva had gotten a chance to fight Mousasi and Jacare it would have been an eye opener imo
    would not be fair to compare Gastelum or Romero or Whittaker because they were no where good when Anderson was peaking
