Some Brazilian Media are all over the rumors that Anderson Silva threw the fight against Chris Weidman. They are just rumors and should be treated as such. Here is a translation of what some Brazilian sources are saying. However we cannot find an official statement of Minotauro saying that in English or in Portuguese. This goes however in the same direction as the recent statement from mmafighting.com that Anderson Silva wants to rematch Chris Weidman again after all and wants the fight to happen soon as possible and this for a million dollar paycheck.

Source: UFC Bahia:

“Minotauro has declared the following statement: “If people knew what really happened in the defeat of Anderson, they would be disgusted.”
All Brazilians were shocked and saddened by Anderson having lost the belt in Vegas. But they don’t need to be. What is discussed below is the news firsthand being investigated by radio and newspapers throughout Brazil and some foreigners, specifically Wall Street Journal and Sports Gazette and the media should be released soon, and the evidence will confirm the facts.

Rumor: Anderson Silva SOLD the UFC belt. The fighter’s staff was advised, at 1:00pm on July 6 (Fight Day), at a meeting involving Dana White, Pedro Rizzo and Mr. Lorenzo Fertitta. At first they were very upset, and Anderson refused to sell the belt.

The acceptance came through the full payment of premiums, US$70K for each member of staff, plus a bonus of U.S$400K for the whole team, a total of US$23 million by Nike. Still, Anderson refused to participate.

Their situation was only resolved after the representative of Nike threatening to withdraw its lifelong sponsorship of the fighter, valued at more than US$90 million throughout his career. Thus, it was agreed that Anderson would be defeated by points, but the apathy that befell the fighter made Chris Weidman, who absolutely did not participate in this negotiation, TKO Anderson.

Dana White applauded the team collaboration of Silva, since the change of belt has brought balance to the category.” Phone Post

I feel bad for Chris Weidman.

He did the unthinkable and people are shitting on his accomplishment.

Ed Soares said point blank on Ariel's show that Anderson messed up and lost, fan and square.

Weidman is a beast.

This is the kind of thing that sucks about MMA being on a national/international level, as again, everyone gets a crack at being a media person.

I know who I trust for sources for MMA and I think most people on here know as well.

Does anyone really think that the UFC wants Weidman as champ instead of anderson?

What is this fucking drivel? There was no fix, there is no conspiracy, people. Anderson got caught with a well placed punch and lost. End of story.

Like Forbes said. Silva losing was the best $$$ option for the UFC as Dana did everything he could for super fights. They were never going to happen. With GSP and Jones fighting they had nothing for NYE or SB. Now they will have a match that might draws UFC 100 numbers.

This would not surprise me at all. I would rather wait till a more legit source to confirm though. Phone Post 3.0

Oh shit! That makes perfect sense!

Nike and the UFC would totally risk an enormous scandal that could hurt the 40-something yo Nike brand tremendously and obliterate the UFC to make Weidman champ! Specially if they could do a deal for a measly 23 mill with only a 75% chance of a leak by involving the entire team of Anderson.

I knew it!
