Just thought I'd mention it. That really says something.

Big respect to the GOAT (IMO).

I have tons of respect for Anderson.. but to be honest.. if he was anything but classy he'd look like a real asshole right now after what he did and how he acted.

But I still can't wait to see his next fight.

Good to see Weidman and Anderson embrace after the fight though.. without kissing involved.

I'm not really sure what he was thinking during the fight, but he went above and beyond after it, which I think is really commendable.

Yup, says he wants 3/4 months to think about his future though :/, if UFC is intent on the rematch, don't expect a fight till CHristmas or later.

He feels like an idiot for taunting and getting caught. Nothing classy about his performance tonight

Maybe you should ask his opponent how disrespectful it is. 

 

It's part of his game. Had he kept matrixing and then KTFO of Weidman we would all be drooling...

I always hate it when someone displays douchey behavior and gets there ass handed to them suddenly becomes a humble, nice guy. 

Shut your mouth and go ponder your ways.

Yeah of course he feels like an idiot. He knows chris had no business even being in there with him, got too cocky and threw away the fight. Phone Post 3.0

I don't see it that way. The fact that he was so gracious in defeat and made absolutely no excuses shows that the showboating and clowning is all just a tactic to him. No animosity or disrespect. 

I think he got a little carried away with it this time (7 years in the UFC without a SINGLE loss might do that to you), but I think it was just strategy.

Yeah I hate that strategy. It is disrepectful and shameful. He cannot win with out it.

No animosity or disrespect. 

thats the MMA equivalent of the drunk douche disrespecting your girlfriend and saying "Dude, I was just jokin". Thats bullshit and he deserves to get knocked out  just like AS deserved it.

Yup still my fav fighter. Everytime a re porter said it seems you messed up not that Weidman won he told them no Weidman is the better fighter. Good thing about tonight is his real fans can weed out the flip floppers and they can go talk shit about him.

The fans booing Anderson during an incredibly humble post-fight interview was embarrassing. His showboating/disrespect was limited to during the fight (likely as a head game), but idiots booing him as he is being nearly overly respectful was very distasteful.

I kinda think this too.

I know he likes to put on a show to display his speed, but he got clipped a few times and that should have been enough to get him firing all guns. He's got s granite chin and it just hit him perfectly while he was fucking around. It was his fight to lose IMHO. Phone Post

rjbo,

why is it that the fighter in the cage felt no disrespect and can ggrasp the concept of why Anderson does what he does, but a long time poster here (who I would think would have been following combat sports a LONG time) cannot? 

Fighters in CS have tried to goad and taunt their opponents into making mistakes or getting over anxious for decades. Anderson is one of the best ever to do it. 

Words can be disrespectful, or Rashad grabbing his cock on live tv is disrespectful, trying to goad or provoke reactions in the cage is rarely viewed as disrespectful by the actual fighters. Let's not pretend this was the Maia fight and he was hiding behind the ref. He was working the same matrix shit he works on almost all of his opponents and got caught.
