    If Chris loses at 168, then his first win will be void

    The one that sticks out in my mind is JJ VS Shogun. Epic beat down. Though, I'm not sure it was a huge upset.

    This fight is interesting in that if Weidman wins, it will prove that he's simply the better fighter. No matter how he wins. If however, Anderson should win, it will very much 'depend' upon the manner in which he wins (at least in the eyes of some).

    Either way, I just hope that people can get past their irrational dislike for either guy, and just enjoy it for what it is.

    If it's a dominant victory, some of the validity will dissipate. Most people will consider Weidman "lucky". That's the way herding goes.

    The truth of the first fight is Anderson did get caught clowning... Not to take anything away from Chris, he did what many others have failed to do before, I see the second fight looking as different from the first as AS v Chael 1+2 did...

    Weidman is a great fighter and will remain in the top 10 for years. If he loses to Anderson I can see him fighting for the title again and beating whoever is holding the belt. If he beats Anderson then I think he will likely hold the belt for a long time unless Vitor KTFO him or Jacare beats him (in both cases I'd pick Weidman to win).

    If Anderson comes out and embarrasses him in a round or two then yea people will claim his win was a fluke. But it doesn't take anything away from his first win. Fluke or not he is still the only guy to beat Anderson in the UFC and that can never be taken away from him.

    Fu**ing excuses...

    Anderson didn't get KTFOed because he was too slow, he got KTFOed for two technical reasons:
    1) Bad foot positioning, his feet were planted horizontally while leaning back
    2) Weidman doubled up two rights. A right cross then a backhand right. The following left hook went in the same direction as the right backhand. The result was that Anderson rolled away from the right backhand and then proceeed to roll into Weidman's left hook.

    Even before the fight, Jack Slack predicted that Anderson would be vulnerable to consecutive punches going in the same direction.

    I not saying this is totally like GSP vs Matt Serra 1 situation but if you ACTUALLY watch the fight, GSP had nothing for Serra as well..

    Serra was the one landing all the shots and was able to finished GSP in friggin' 1st round!

    Serra just had GSP's number that night and it showed...stuff like that happens.

    How was the 'fight competitive until the KO'?

    What offense did Anderson execute to make it competitive? Point me to a time I can tune in and rewatch where he does anything but land a few leg kicks, which maybe over time would do something but by that point had done nothing.

    Sorry but this title fight was not competitive at all. Weidman took control from the opening bell right up until he KATFO.

    He will always be the guy who knocked Anderson Silva the fuck out. Same as Werdum and Serra.

    It's not 'if' Weidman loses to Anderson, it's 'when'

    That is him mounting offense....landing those kicks. He defended the takedowns and landed kicks. After the fight was up, there wasnt much that happend. Chris attempted takedowns which he didnt get....he was missing on most his strikes, for the exception of the ones where Anderson had his hands down. No one had control of the fight up until the KO
