I love the man, but im pretty convinced he will lose before he retires. I would love for him not to of course.

I guess thats why I wouldnt be too surprised. He's 38. Has had a lot of fights. If he makes it past Weidman I think he may well not lose to any other MW for at least 2 years.

I wonder if Anderson is by any chance aiming to break a few age records Randy possesses, like:

-Oldest fighter to win a title in UFC history (43 years, 255 days) (He would have to lose to break this one - or at 205???)
-Oldest fighter to defend a title in UFC history (44 years, 65 days)
-Oldest fighter to win a fight in UFC history (47 years, 68 days)


You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.

Divine intervention.

I'll shorten my response to Weidman hopefuls, there is literally no logical reason to bet against Anderson in this fight. I can't be assed to type the rest.

Sure, bet if you have a gut feeling or believe in the kid that much, but there is no LOGICAL reason to.

Except for the whole Chael Sonnen beating him down for 23 minutes thing.

Put a wrestler whose as well versed at jujitsu as Weidman is and Anderson has a problem. Throw in the fact Weidman isn't afraid of him and his chances are good.

Glad to see the vote % about 85/15, just reading some threads it seemed that Chris had a lot of folks picking him to win but this result seems more like what I expected.

This is why - in context - I find it hard to look at a Weidman victory as anything that special.
Well, Serra beating GSP was the biggest upset in UFC history. You can't consider other upsets not upsets because they weren't of the magnitude of GSP vs Serra.

I wouldn't necessarily consider Weidman a huge upset simply because there is a reasonable amount of people thinking he could take it, and stylistically, he's in the right area.

Thats my point. There are too many people picking Weidman for it to be considered any kind of huge upset.
