Huge Silva fan, can't stand Weismann.

Anderson clowned every fighter he defended against with the same head out move to lure them in. He finally paid for it. It's a legitimate win and anyone who says it isn't simply hasn't followed Silvas career or doesn't understand how he uses taunting to force a counter attack opportunity

I wonder how many people know that Silva's idol was roy Jones jr.  and Silva was doing a cheap version of Jones jr when  he was doing that head movement

Its true both wins were flukes. Andy was starting to get the better of Weidman in both fights

If anderson loses it forsnt count because he wasnt the real Anderson Silva, but if he would have won then it would be a different story? Ball licking fans are so delusional

Weidman stopped Anderson twice. No denying this. Only delusional fans would try to take that away from him.

Weidman won. Ok great but both wins were flukes.

Anderson was always a slow starter he would have tkod Weidman in the later rounds in both fights.

He had better cardio and bigger balls. Rewatch the fights and you will see the momentum was shifting towards Andy.

Rockhold killed the Weidman aura.. guy hasn't been the same since that fight. I remember at one point in his career a fight with Jones seemed logical, shit some of us actually thought he would do well. Not so much at this point.. he's fighting Reyes in his next fight, and like GodofThunder said in his vlog above, I don't think he gets past Reyes. Who knows though! When you least expect it is when ppl surprise you..

Only the second fight was a fluke

No, he actually beat him twice, and the second fight Weidman was dominating before he broke Andetson's leg. He almost finished Anderson and dropped him

I don't know if anyone would argue that Weidman is a better martial artist, but the fact is Anderson has two "Ls" next to his name courtesy of a clean KO and a proper check of a leg kick.  You want to say Anderson wins 8 out of 10 fights, that can be debated, but the first two can't.

Why does it always have to be so one or the other. Yeah he won twice but everyone with half a brain knows they aren't the most legitimate of wins. The first fight silva showed too much disrespect and payed, the second was a complete fluke. Both unfortunate outcomes but it is what it is. Anderson is the goat.

If Anderson hadn't of goofed off in the first fight I think history would've been different. He played around too much and he ran into the wrong opponent to do that to. Got caught and his career was never the same.

A clean knockout and a perfectly checked kick aren't legit? Even if that check didn't break the leg Anderson was not gonna throw another kick his leg woulda been fucked up badly.

The 8/10 and 9/10 have no logic.

There were two fights, Silva lost, that's all that matters.

Hypotheticals are for soul searchers.

I remember the headlines after the first Anderson/Weidman fight. It wasn't "Weidman beats Silva in stunning upset." It was more like "Silva clowns around and loses title." Total disregard for Chris's accomplishment.
 

Like others have said here, Anderson's hands down/head movement to bait opponents was a tactic he'd used with success multiple times before. He wanted Weidman to try to hit him so he (Silva) could land a counter. Weidman happened to be the first one to beat Anderson's strategy and the MMA media and fans gave him no credit for it. I resent it to this day when I think about it.

I wonder how many people know that you idolize the head movements of sucking cock and do a cheap version of that multiple times daily?

It wasn't a fluke that he won the first fight when Silva was 'matrixing'.
He specifically tricked Silva into it, throwing two shots with the same hand, knowing it would throw Silva's timing off, because 99% of fighters throw left-right-left-right, etc... so you don't have to pay as much attention at what hand is coming at you.

The second fight I can't rule a fluke either.
It was the only time we've seen Silva get controlled in the clinch - something he was known for doing to others - and actually dropped with a flash KO from there - something we'd NEVER seen someone else do.
Weidman was all over him that second fight and they'd specifically taken note of his leg kicks which is where he troubled Chris in the first fight. They obviously didn't think he'd break his own leg, but they trained to better defend it and discourage him from continually throwing it by trying to get it to connect with the harder surface area, instead of just eating it in the muscle.

This guy gets it.
