    He pretty much knocked him out in the clinch in the second fight if I remember correctly but Silva woke back up

    At the time Weidman had everything to gain from that fight, now with Silva on the decline it doesnt happen as they are just happy to out point him, there is no urgency to rip his head off, also Silva doesnt clown that much as he did then.

    Chris was in his pre-USADA state (both bigger and faster) combined with the fact that they were pretty fluky KO's.

    If they weren't fluky ... then show Weidman's other KO's that came in similar fashion? What? He never broke anyone else's leg with a check? I wonder why not?

    PS Weidman WON both times fair and square just like how Serra won against GSP fair and square.

    That doesn't mean they weren't fluky and they are not likely to happen again.

    Weidman was a threat with his striking as well as his grappling, he also made Anderson move into his left hook which is Weidman's best punch. He didn't fight anyone else like Weidman and very few people doubled up on punches from one side against Anderson so he got used to just swaying back and forth to dodge strikes from alternating sides.

    Weidman finished Hall with the same left hook that he finished Anderson with.

    Has Silva done his hands down matrix evasion since then?

    Look at the strikers Anderson fought...they were all slow as fuqq with zero wrestling threat.

    The JBG finally had enough of Anderson trying to be a playboy.

    They weren't fluky because Weidman was winning every minute of both fights, and hurt Silva repeatedly prior to both finishes. They were more than just catching Silva. They were dominant performances.

    Anderson dropped his hands and didn't time his defense well and got caught. Simple as that.

    Anderson has 1 win against a good striker: Belfort
    Belfort was on off at that time.
