Saying that Silva did'nt try to win the fight is a fallacy and nothing but an excuse, he did what he always does and absolutely failed to get anything significant off because Weidman had his number.
If Silva would have landed just one of his counter punches and knocked out Weidman everyone would be praising Silva about how he made Weidman look easy instead of questioning his performance.
Silva lost because Weidman was the superior fighter in every way, not because Silva did'nt try.
Exactly. That right there is the fact of the matter.
