And Chuck was never that good to begin with, but Shogun, Penn, Fedor, all of them, their time all ran out, and a younger, stronger, newer breed of fighter came in and phased them out.
Anderson was 2 minutes away from losing to a guy with inferior striking and ju-jitsu to Weidman whose only looked bad once in his career and that was when he cut 32 lbs in 11 days and he just made the guy Anderson brought in to teach him wrestling look like an amateur.
So yeah, I really don't get why people are so confident in Anderson, he's always struggled against wrestlers and this one actually knows submissions when the time comes Weidman will push him out the door and Anderson can go enjoy his retirement, he just doesn't have what it takes to beat him and there's no shame in that.
If you can't tell by now that there is something different about Anderson Silva I'd say it's because you're consumed with your hatred for him.
He toys with his opponents like a cat plays with a mouse. Every time he fights it's poetry in motion. There may never be anybody like him ever again... and people like you see this and react by spewing garbage on a message board.
You can root against him and get all bothered by it when he clowns fighter after fighter, or you can enjoy the fact that this man is able to make a joke out of the very best fighters in the world. It really is that simple.
You were wrong about Edgar/Bendo, Silva/Sonnen, and GSP/Condit and you're wrong again.
