Kinkle - Most idiots will say he is simply talking shit, but from watching the fight closely it makes perfect sense. Silva seemed rattled, and desperate, It could've definitely been from how confident Weidman was.

lol @ comparing Leben to Weidman to Leben and saying "if only Anderson did X"... like, if only he actually tried?  You mean like this?

Looks like he was trying to me... and failing..  Or was his inability to land just another instance of "clowning around"?

Chris is correct, he beat and man-handled Anderson "Spider" Silva on the ground at whim. The reality is Anderson is a weakling, skinny arms, zero muscles. His competition up to date has been garbage. Here you have a strong guy same size with strenght who if he so chose would snap Anderson "Spider" Silva's wrists or ankles.  The carefully crafted oppostion from the UFC to keep him to be the best has always been patently obvious.

Fighting on TRT or fighting under your natural weight class is cheating. You may hocus pocus and magic wand that anyway you wish.

Kid_dynamite319 - Sigh I think Weidman is giving himself too much credit, If Anderson feared his power he wouldn't have been able to laugh at one of his strikes.

he "laughed" because he got clipped hard, and it hurt. Another try on his mind games, guarantee that right hand he laughed at hurt like a m'fer.

Willin - Weidman's analysis of the fight is spot on! People criticize his one failed shot but don't acknowledge that Anderson did nothing. Phone Post
Weidman was winning the fight, clearly. He was dangerous on the ground, Anderson spent the next round and a half clowning and taunting, then Weidman KO'd him.

But "he knew he couldn't hurt me" seems odd because he was clowning the whole time. What did he throw? Two nothing jabs, a half ass crescent kick and some leg kicks. He did nothing but taunt, remember?

Anderson barely threw a strike and of course he could hurt him. Unless Weidman's baiting a rematch, that's either a bit cocky or a bit silly. Phone Post 3.0

he threw a couple head kicks, that were blocked or missed. He threw a flying knee that Chris avoided. MULTIPLE punches to no avail, or that were head butted by Chris, that front kick that was avoided, solid leg kicks,the list goes on...Barely threw A strike??? What fucking fight were you watching?!

This. Silva did nothing because Weidman was simply too good for Silva.

Silva tried to fight a good fight but Weidman dominated. He then knew he might lose, so he resorted to his Hail Mary clown moves and this time it didn't work because Weidman was too good to fall for that crap.

Silva had nothing for Weidman besides a few leg kicks.

What fight were people watching Phone Post 3.0

Fightmetric says he threw 18 in the first round and 6 in the second round. Connected with 9 and 5. That's not a lot of strikes and it's also a higher percentage landed than Weidman landed even though some of Weidman's were ground and pound strikes.

Someone could argue the accuracy of those numbers, but I don't sit there and count strikes and these guys are paid to do just that.

What a silly statement by a guy who clearly MUST know better.

Happy to give him some air on that BS claim, coming off the biggest win (of anyone's, let alone) his career, but....REALLY?

DanGold - "Can't" is not the same as "didn't".

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.

Silva is done - he clowned because he got frustrated, knew he was going to lose. He knew Weidman was going to beat him months before the fight. Who kisses someone at the weigh-ins? except for a desparate douche.

Because Weidman is just younger, better BJJ, better wrestling, more well rounded, apparently more serious.. just..better.

Thanks for the fights Anderson - you sucked when you pulled that BS with Maia. Adios dick head and you'll get punished in the rematch and still get knocked out or submitted.

Team Weidman forever!

Weidman will absolutely ragdoll Silva if they rematch. Weidman KO'd Silva with the worst case of nerves that Weidman is likely to EVER have to deal with and did it without taking any damage. Silva is past his prime now and it would be an ugly beatdown. Get us something more entertaining please.

Of course ! This makes sense. i previously posted that when Silva got nailed on the ground in the first minute, his fate was sealed. He no longer could think clearly, his senses were dulled, and he lost his punch. He did get back up off the mat, and did try to KO, or throw all his arsenal at Weidman as a wounded warrior would. I know as a fighter, there is nothing worse than being in a fight, and finding out your punch can't hurt the other guy. Talk about up dada creek, and no paddle. There is not a lot in sport that makes you feel as helpless. A gun and no bullets. Anderson felt this helplessness on Saturday night when he fought Chris Weidman, then promptly unravelled, and disintegrated into what we witnessed on that fateful night.Yes, he simply folded folks. I'm just thinking back. He kneed Chael to win that last one, a front kick did Belfort in. A knee ruined Bonnar. For the most part, most of the last couple of years anyway, Silva's punch is mostly been non existent in starching guys, Definitely formidable, but may not be what it once was. After all he has had wars with Chael, and Hendo where those guys took his best shots, and fought back admirably. now he runs into a huge Weidman who actually looks taller than Silva and for some odd reason..damned huge! He looks well over 220 I would say. Much bigger in appearance than Silva. Maybe that's why Silva thought he could lose, afterall Silva won't fight Rampage, Rashad, Shogun, Jones of course, any guys in the bigger divisions that are good. He will take Griffin, Bonnar, Griffin,i.e the Tomato Cans. But I get sidetracked..Silva was intimidated going in for a lot of reasons. All the fighters, and experts picking weidman, Weidmans size, and youth, coupled with all his strengths. I think we all underestimated Chris's standup, but ultimately it was the confidence that bothered Silva the most, and actually was Chris's biggest weapon. And a huge reason for Silva's final meltdown. The rematch is intriguing, because it looked like Silva was comming back, with the movement, and leg kicks. That pressure though, was just too much I think. Silva would have to expend three times the energy of Weidman to keep that movement going, and he was already tired. You could see it when he sat up. Gassed, defeated.

One of Silva's greatest weapons was putting fear into his opponent. If that didn't work on Weidmen before then it's definitely not going to work now.

You could see a bit of caution from Weidman, which was based on the fact that Silva had wrecked so many other fighters when they thought they had the upper hand.

Nobody had ever seen Silva hurt in the UFC. Even when he was positionally dominated, or and used as a punching bag like he was against Chael, he would very suddenly and violently show that he was not hurt and put his opponent away. That was a big part of why people fought very cautiously against him, or even fought scared.

Forget about all that now, because Weidman knows he can KO Silva, and so does Silva. There will be zero intimidation factor next fight.

I think Weidman just has Silva's number, but we'll see.
