Dmoney35 - it's unreal to me sometimes the stances this place takes. Having any confidence that weidman can beat silva again is ludicrous unless Anderson acts crazy again. it was an awkward ending to a fight that Anderson silva was so confident he was going to win he messed around.

weidman didn't
-out skill Anderson
-out wrestle
-out smart
-out jiu jitsu
- out strike

Chris weidman landed a punch when Anderson was acting like an idiot. now a win is a win but weidman in no way proved he is a superior fighter.

ANDERSON LOST HIMSELF THE FIGHT

why is Anderson already the favorite for the rematch? Phone Post 3.0

you're talking out your asshole

 

One thing you won't hear is AS talking about how he out-struck CW.

 

Get out of the denial stage.

Marketing guy - I see your point. After rereading I understand what you were going for. I'm just saying that Weidman should have said he "didn't" hurt him not that he lacked the ability. We all know it could have easily been Weidman at any moment sleeping on the floor. If Weidman believes Anderson couldn't hurt him, that will definitely be an advantage for Anderson come rematch time.
I feel many of you are inferring much more than what was actually said. Weidman is 100% correct in saying Anderson COULDN'T hurt him in the fight, how do we know? Anderson was actively attempting to hurt Weidman for a little more than a round, and was not capable of hurting him. Didn't hurt him implies that Anderson could've hurt him during the course of the fight if he simply chose to.

I think it is extremely silly to think that Anderson could've hurt Weidman and decided simply not to, the frustration of Anderson, and the attempted strikes say differently.

Weidman never said Anderson couldn't and can never hurt him no matter what could've happened in that fight and whatever happens in any future fight. Phone Post 3.0

Fighters should not have to deal with the media at all after they had a fight.  They should be able to tell reporters to fuck off until their next fight is coming up.

 

No matter what they say, there are opinionated assholes on places such as this saying they should just shut up and they hate them.

 

They don't need that shit.

Between the arrogance and the God squaddery, Weidman is going to be shooting up the Official Ronda Rousey Annoyingness Ratings in no time.

It is hilarious that people don't think Anderson was an arrogant asshole during that fight, and instead are calling Weidman arrogant for saying Anderson couldn't "hurt him" after he just knocked Anderson the FUCK OUT, and walked out of the cage UNHURT.

I feel like you read pretty much nothing Weidman said, nor my reply to it and saw what you wanted to see and then replied to nothing that actually exists.

I am pretty sure you called him arrogant, and compared him to Ronda Rousey. I am pretty sure Weidman was also super classy to Silva in the post fight interview (unlike lets say Rousey after she beat Tate). I am also pretty sure you are just another shit talker trying to bash Weidman for no other reason that you are butthurt that he smashed your idol. Show some class, no reason to bash a fighter for beating somebody you liked.

Ronda Rousey is the gold standard for annoying fighters. Weidman continually talking like he had more to do with the win than Anderson will be annoying and move him up the ranks.

And again, "can't" isn't the same as "didn't". Weidman thinking Anderson can't hurt him is arrogant.

I'm knit picking beyond belief here bro. You can take it either way. I'm not sure how good Weidman's vocab is. I'm just saying... What he said refers to ability. "didn't" would have fit better and people most likely wouldn't be on here arguing over this. What we know is that Silva DIDN't hurt Weidman, not that he lacked the ability. We will need the rematch to show whether he COULD hurt Weidman.

Pompei - Not sure what some of you were watching... I saw Silva dance his title away to a guy that was clearly gassing out, stiffening up and losing confidence up until he caught Silva on the button.

To all of you talking crap about Anderson, have a look at his past fights. Look at the fact that its him and him alone that depicts when to turn up the heat and finish you. We love to watch him because nobody has ever seen enough of a guy that moves like a matrix character and can finish you with one move.

Have a look at Weidmans face during the first round break... Oozing confidence as he tried not to shit himself. Paper champ. Phone Post 3.0

The one time I called it.  An immediate rematch is ridiculous.

 

I said on another thread that if you happen to get the belt your rematch should already be scheduled, but you didn't really win it yet.

 

Auto-rematches are fucking retarded.

 

Straight up.

Well I guess you sort of knocked him out in devastating fashion in the second round, but we're not convinced yet.

 

Go again

Is it just me or was weidman talking about how much damage he took from two body kicks in the post fight press. Just stop talking, if he was scared of his power why was he leaning in? Two possibilities Anderson thought Weidman had no chance of finishing him, or he honestly wanted to lose. They should make the layoff on title rematches four months, primarily so a division doesn't end up being locked down for 2 years. If Anderson wins the hypothetical rematch on super bowl weekend. We get to wait for number 3 some time towards the end of 2014, then another fighter will get a chance sometime in 2015. Assuming there's not a longer layoff between any of these fights.

I respect Anderson's skillset and all, but the more I read the arguements for Silva not trying at all is getting old. He did go over the top, but its because his normal antics werent working

Weidman took him to that point by not falling into Silva's game. Weidman deserves more credit than he is getting.

I agree but mainly to the silva fans.

Unless this becomes a every week thing, then it will start to get a little annoying. But he is the champ, he did just defeat the GOAT so he has earned the right to say whatever he wants...

 


I would agree to an extent, but it was a bizarre fight and to act like Weidman did everything right and beat the best Anderson Silva he could beat is untrue IMO.

It doesn't belittle the achievement, but Weidman is basically talking like he's Bones post Shogun, rather than Serra post GSP.

I think we have a "Butt Hurt Red Alert" on our hands...

Chiron - Weidman fan here but he's talking some serious nonsense above. LMAO idiots thinking its actually true. Ya, Anderson Silva couldn't hurt Weidman, or any other MW. Riiiiight. lol

Not saying you are not a fan of Weidman, given that, as an MMA fan how could you not be after a performance like that. But it's obvious that you are a much bigger Anderson fan. Why else would you delve through that quote with a fine tooth comb looking for any reason to bash him. The guy was supremely confident and fought like a guy who felt invincible at the time (Unlike Silva's other victims) and he won. Continue to place that down pillow on every chair you sit on.

I see what you are saying but there's a lot of people who would say a front kick was "Just Playing" and we all know what Anderson was able to do with that.

PatrickVilone -  Lul. Anderson Silva CAN hurt any man on this planet. He DIDNT hurt him on Saturday. Huge difference.

Put any man with a granite chin in front of Andy. Let him land a few good head kicks/knees and punchs. No man can't be hurt. We saw that Saturday.

Andy kills him in the rematch IMO

If he wasn't acting a fool on Saturday I think he'd still be champ anyways Phone Post

I'm sure you said he would kill him in the first fight too right?

When Anderson loses the rematch emphatically again, will you stop being delusional?
