Self-fulfilling prophecy, Silva predicts own loss?


Let's get this out of the way first, the idea that Anderson Silva lost his bout at UFC 162 on purpose is outrageous, asinine even. In retrospect some of his comments in this pre-fight interview with Joe Ferraro are quite interesting, including comments that the best outcome of this fight could be him losing:

Joe Ferraro: If you had a perfect fight against Chris Weidman on Saturday night, what is your perfect fight?

Anderson Silva: "CHRIS WEIDMAN (makes crowd noise) CHRIS WEIDMAN!!! CHRIS WEIDMAN is the best in the world! Chris Weidman is the new champion de UFC!"

Ferraro: "Because there would be a rematch after that?"

Silva: "No man. I'm tired bro. No rematch. I'm tired. I win, I win, I win. Go back for all the fights. Please."

Video only predicts a wiedman victory.IMO Andy was going to dance around and relinquish his belt on caught and was fine with it because he doesn't want to deal with all the stress and politics associated with being the Champ.

I think he went out there with intention winning or losing in spectacular fashion, I don't think he cared either way as long as it was exciting and not 5 rounds of grappling.
