Anderson Silva was a perfect 16-0 in the UFC and in that time showed brilliant control, technique, and power in most of fights. However it was a lack of control that Silva blamed for his recent loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 162:

“It [the awkward movement] was a technical error to keep my legs parallel; I should have taken a step back instead,” he said. 

“Several factors led to the knockout. The tension in the air before the fight, you just want to burst ... it was a series of mistakes.” 

Silva revealed another error on his part: Instead of returning to his corner after Round 1 for guidance, he took issue with his team’s suggestions. 

“In my career, I’ve always went back to my corner [for advice],” Silva said. “Against Weidman, I went back to argue, and I should have gone back to my corner and calmed down. I didn't do any of that; I lost control."

great read, thanks.

Seems like he has been very humbled by this experience. He needed that beatdown.

Truth. Silva was expecting a left, not an akward right uppercut/jab. His assumption put him in an odd position with his feet right under him unable to dodge the next blow. I have no idea how this next bout will turn out but I'm excited. Phone Post

Pumped for the rematch. Silva WILL wreck Weidman, what he did not finish in the first fight he will surely finish in the second.

This was a great humbling experience for Andy. Hopefully after he decimates Chris in the rematch he will be into a fight with Jon Jones for control over the P4P rankings. Phone Post 3.0

Both are true obviously. I did notice the arguing in his corner after they told him to stop the antics.... Phone Post

When asked what he said to the American, Silva explained he was trying to draw Weidman into a more fan-friendly fight, instead of wrestling and taking matters to the ground.

"I was saying, 'Come on, let's fight standing up, look at the crowd applauding.' Because standing up is much cooler than fighting on the floor," Silva said.




Maybe he had flashbacks to Chael taking him down at will for 4.5 rounds and didn't want to be put in that position again so he decided to talk shit in an attempt to keep it standing?

I thought I saw Weidman lose control too when he was dropping fight finishing ground and pound.

SIlva has never said a fully constructed Sentence like that in English ever. 

 

 

It was probably more like (in the helium voice of AS) "Now fight for punching, no wreslting , people like punchy"

I am not sure what will happen in this fight. It's one of the few where I just have no clue what will happen.

I can see both sides, and I can't wait to see this fight.

I agree with his outlook on his performance, I can't wait to see how Anderson comes back from a loss.

I just hope he's not burned out from being Champ so long. It's a got to be a lot of pressure to deal with. I can't wait for the rematch, good luck to both fighters.
