Remember when all of Sherdog said Anderson Silva couldn't lose, and he'd beat Widman?

    Kind of like when Dana was wrong about Barao. Funny how that happens isn't it?

    Everyone on here claimed he was a God basically, couldn't lose, nobody would ever beat him. There were threads daily "WILL ANDERSON EVER LOSE?!"


    Dana didn't make half the claims most people on here made. Of course most of them now claim they knew Weidman would win, but before the fight Silvas nut huggers claimed he'd never lose. All Dana said was that Barao was the best fighter in the world, and that he hasn't lost in a decade.

    It's a cycle. What's funny is that now Weidman is invincible. He cannot lose according to many on Sherdog. Then he will lose [Most likely to Machida] & Machida will become invincible [At MW] until he loses

    I remember when Anderson won 16 straight fights, broke records and made professional fighters look like amateurs.

    What is the point of your thread? That everyone can lose? Dana bashing? Anderson bashing? I don't get it.

    It's just funny how many threads are calling Dana a retard for being wrong and shitting all over him. When 12 months ago they all made the same mistake.

    I remember that people were saying Anderson was getting old and like any other great athlete would eventually lose, though people weren't sure to who at the time.

    I also remember the betting odds only had Weidman as a 2-1 dog and there were a lot of pros who picked him

    There is no point. It's just a "haha look at me! I never get too invested into fighters, you all suck!" high horse shitposting thread bonanza.

    The trifecta of shit -
    1. No Point
    2. High Horse
    3. Shit post

    The same way Barao was beating legends like Faber, and running through the rest of his opponents. They act like because Dana said it about Barao it's automatically bullshit, when he was doing the same thing Silva was.

    I don't remember everyone saying that. I remember a lot of posters on this site thinking that Weidman had a good chance of beating Silva and that Silva tried to duck Weidman because he was a stylistic nightmare for Silva. Better wrestler than Sonnen with MUCH better submissions and submission defense.

    But let's act like this never happened so you can continue to troll.

    Remember when Dana was selling the Barao/TJ fight and was talking about Tj stats and the records he hold and people thought he was full of it.

    Funny how nobody else mentions that... he kept going on and on about TJ. But everyone just said blah blah blah, and then TJ came out and went nuts.

    Sorry "The Majority of posters were saying these things, there was a minority group that thought that Weidman had a chance"

    Tito, Chuck, Hughes, Silva, Penn. all looked unbeatable up til they got beaten

    And you will hear people spouting nonsense about him being the number MW of all time if/when he beats Weidman. That will flood Sherdog for a year or two until another fighter knocks him off. It's never rational.
