Anderson takes advantage very quickly, when he spots those moments thanks to his advanced striking and speed. Weidman came prepared in the first fight, he paid attention throughout it and he won when he capitalized after Silva's clowning moments. That doesn't make Weidman way better than Silva and he needs to stay very focused like in the first fight, because Silva can make the rematch very ugly for the new champ just like that. Focus, Chris-kun, focus!
The rematch should be a measuring stick to where silva is at, for the most part I believed he lost focus a long time. However he kept winning as he is just that talented. We'll get to see what a focus and a hungry silva looks like, it have been almost seven years since we seen it. Crazy that this is the first time in seven years someone else than ilva has held that MW belt.
