He was pretending.... He just wanted to lose the title so he can work on his acting career.


Even though he had all these other options.

1. Retire with the belt and undefeated and the best legacy in the sport of MMA.
- Come back if he ever feels the itch to fight again.

2. Ask Dana to create an Interm belt so he can take some time off.

3. Forfeit the belt so he can look for those interesting fights people are talking about.


Alot of options better then getting a concussion and putting a black mark on your legacy so you can not have the belt and focus on acting.


But nope.... Anderson lost on purpose.

haha this was posted today:

Conspiracy theories that say that the fight between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman had a suspicious result may have won an argument on Monday. According to the website "Middle Easy", a bet worth $ 1 million (about U.S. $ 2.2 million) in the victory of Chris Weidman against Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 162 was being investigated by police and Gaming Control Board, the body that regulates gambling in casinos in the city. The gambler's identity has not been revealed, but the high value aroused suspicions of the authorities, not being an amount common in MMA fights, even throughout major events and major American casinos. The premium to be paid would be $ 3.2 million - about £ 7 million.
The favorite on the betting exchanges was Anderson Silva, who had never lost in 16 fights in the UFC, and held many records of the event. Already Weidman, even paying only 3.2 times more than the champion for every dollar wagered, was unbeaten in his career, having won all nine fights as a professional had done.
For determination of Justice, the research runs a secret court, and the details can not be disclosed publicly.

Will have to get MMASportsman to give it a read over and let us know if the translation is accurate.

Your explanations on why it is unlogic that Silva lost on purpose become a little annoying when actually nobody seriously claimed that he did. You often do have good arguments, but in this case you shouldn't try to look smart, when there's nothing to be smart about.

Actually i have heard people say that Anderson lost the fight on purpose due to wanting to pursue an acting career. So yeah i have seen people Claim exactly that. Maybe you should not make such comments without doing a bit more research.

But my post was more of a joke anyway. I didnt mean to sound smart. Not sure why you read the whole thing if it was annoying you. But then again im not even certain why it would annoy you so whatever.

Id agree with you if iv only seen it once. But not only have i seen it on this forum (as a possible joke post) but iv seen random people posting that on MMA Statuses that pop up on my facebook. Iv also read comments saying that the UFC paid Silva to lose so they can have a REmatch and that Weidman should be ashamed to carry a belt the UFC paid for him to have. And some other nonsense... Go on a MMA website and click news regarding Weidman/Silva and read the comments... they get pretty far out there.

Yeah i saw it. That is pretty interesting but im really curious in seeing who made that bet. If its someone like mayweather then i would not be all that surprised. Weidman on paper looks like a good opponent for Silva and the UFC has hyped him up pretty good on promos so it does not surprise me if some rich guy who wipes his ass with hundred dollar bills thought that does odds were too good to pass up. Which im guessing is the case..... or i guess its possible that Anderson has someone make that bet for him because he wanted to throw the fight and make bank. But then 1mil seems a bit low seeing as how he probably makes a few mil each fight especially on a win. I think i read somewhere that GSP makes like 5-6mil per fight or something?? (Not sure if thats the correct number) so im not surprised if Silva makes 1-3mil. So what would his return on a 1mil bet be?? like 2-3mil?? I dont know what the odds were but im guessing pretty far on Silvas side.
