And in answer to the original question: they're Anderson Silva fans. Even when their hero gets taken down and outclassed in the first round and then KOed in the second, they'll still find an excuse or conspiracy to fall back on. The downfall of their reason for being occurred right in front of their eyes, and still they manage to delude themselves into thinking they saw something else entirely.

Anderson Silva fans are the worst. Bar none.
Steady on tiger. We're not all delusional twats.

Eh, I've had to deal with being grouped in with 'GSP fans' insults for years now. You can deal with it

perhaps in pure wrestling Chael is better than Weidman, but when you factor in Weidmans BJJ I'm not so sure in a MMA environment.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Unless Silva let him do it on purpose, Chael was able to keep him on the ground for six and a half rounds. Weidman couldn't do that for one full round.

Oh, wait: Inside Anderson Silva the real story: the Sonnen case

Silva was also injured that fight.

a better comparison would be their second fight.

Gotta love sports fan prejudice.

I think its pretty mild in MMA. In the UK we happily brand *all* supporters of specific footie teams. For example, everybody knows that all young males from Liverpool are car thieves. Or that all Chelsea fans are racist nazis. And my favourite - All people from Portsmouth are dockland prostitutes. etc.

By comparison you have to deal with GSP fans all being labelled Canadian... which is pretty horrible granted, but not really that bad.

I'd wager you're a Welshman masquerading as a Brit.

I went there.

#1. Chris Deserves his just dues regardless of how much Anderson was fooling around. Chris showed up to COMPETE. This is a COMPETITION! Weidman was competing and he won, it's not his fault if his opponent wasn't really trying to compete. And he has the belt and everything that will come with it as his "just dues".

#2. But for those who say Silva fools around like this every fight, I have to disagree. The minute he bent his knees, cocked his head, and pretended to be limp and ko'd standing up, he ceased to be competing. And he has never gone that far in any other fight that I can remember.

Thats why when he actually got dropped 2 seconds later I wasn't sure if it was a joke. Because 2 seconds before that he was pretending to be freaking limp. What a foolish thing to do during a fight. I don't care who you are. It is a competition. Not the Anderson Silva show.

I am excited about the rematch. I feel the rematch will be unpredictable if Anderson shows up to compete to win. and not to compete to show off how "slick" or funny he is.

If Weidman would have dominated another fighter Saturday like he did to Silva no one would be questioning it, but because it was Silva he dominated from start to finish everyone has an excuse.
Weidman didn't want to stand with Silva, he wanted to take him down, GnP to finish or submit Silva. He said that this was his plan in countless interviews, and that he did not expect to finish Silva standing in his post fight interviews.

The only credit I can give Weidman is he knocked out Anderson Silva. No one can take that away from him. He knocked him out cold. How it happened and how the fight went down is a different story, this finish is more ridiculous than that Matt Serra finish IMO.
