    will he ever get full credit for the win or will he just be considered lucky that Anderson was playing too much?

    anderson haters will still proclaim weidman as the better fighter and say anderson's win in the second fight was "lucky"

    anderson huggers will say anderson didnt fight to his full potential and the second fight is the true display of his skill

    in reality, it depends on how the second fight goes. if anderson goes in there and pulls off a performance like franklin 1 or 2, people will look at the first fight a little differently although you cant take anything away from weidman winning. if anderson knocks him out after a round or two of a tough fight, a third fight is a must

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    Most Anderson fans have already decided that he was winning the first fight before it even started, and have already decided that he's won the second fight until proven otherwise.
    So, basically, to answer your question: No

    Chris outstruck, outgrappled and KTFO Anderson in less than 1 1/2 rounds. He was bankrupt, had his house destroyed by a hurricane and was coming off a year long layoff with 3 surgeries. And Anderson still had absolutely nothing for him. That was one of the most dominant title performances in the UFC.

    But one big difference is that Serra really whooped GSP's ass like no other.

    you want the spin or fact TS?

    Too many Anderson fans are already trying to set up the spin suggesting if Anderson dispatches Chris quick it is proof of a Serra type first win and he should not get a rematch nor credit for the first win.

    Fact is if Anderson is to beat Chris (or JDS, Cain for that matter) it will almost certainly be via quick KO. He is a top striker whose chances of winning will go down if he takes tons of abuse from Chris, round over round.

    So no, a quick KO would only prove what we all know and that is Anderson is the most dangerous striker at MW. I would still take Weidman in the rubber match.

    In Anderson's case it'd be point striking for the UD.

    Yes this will happen. Especially if Anderson wins his next fight after that by a wide margin and retires.

    and then they will watch the fight and see he got 'caught' time and time again before he was clowning.

    It will depend on how the fight goes. If it's an easy win for Silva then yes, Weidman will probably be seen as just lucky. If it's a good and close fight everyone will be calling for yet another rematch.
