...Weidman is so full of himself now saying Anderson is beatable...but he had better look in the mirror. Chris isn't mythical by no means and he is beatable as well. He will get his first loss, handing the title back to Anderson in their rematch. I just have a strong feeling that Anderson will adjust beautifully like he did against Sonnen when they fought the 2nd time and he will finish Weidman this go-around. No horseplay anymore and this will be the most focused Anderson Silva we have ever seen in the Octagon. I hope Chris spends as much time with the belt as he can cause he will be giving it back to Anderson pretty soon. A refocused Anderson Silva is a scary concept...

He's signed up because he was offered. We can safely say that he's not crying at night and not dreaming 24/7 about winning the belt back. The guy was talking of retirement, superfights, Roy Jones, etc more times than I can count. Never heard of him dreaming to retire with the gold around his waist. Even after his loss, he kept talking of superfights, hiring Chuck Norris... it's like Shogun hiring Freddie Roach and getting his ass kicked by Sonnen. Silva will be embarrassed just like that. He doesn't have Cain's mentality and hunger for vengeance. He's been the best for too long and doesn't have anything to prove.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Yeah I'm sure Silva signed right up for an immediate title fight just for shits and giggles. Of course it does'nt mean anything, it's only one of the biggest fights in his career, win or lose.

Weidman is scared, telling himself these things just trying to convince himself they are true.

Silva is going to destroy Weidman in the rematch. Silva learned that he has to be a little careful in his fights and won't make the same mistake twice.

Anderson lost to a more focus and hunger fighters. I'm saying he lost that focused/hunger at some point in those seven years. He lost, the rematch will paint a story for the rest remainder of his career. You can't tell me he was 100% mentally focus for this fight when a larger portion of the media leading up to this fight was bringing up superfights.

That lost either could be the end of a legend or the begin to a new path of his legendary career. He could end up like gsp after serra or end up like Fedor.

But Silva lost to other grapplers when he was in his physical peak and fought to make a living. Now he has money, fame etc but he did not back then. So he was fully motivated and lost, how do you explain that ?

He lost once to an "unlucky" foot lock yes, but he also won fights where he was very close to losing. He also lost to a wrestler long time ago and lost his MMA debute and now he also lost to Weidma. So basically we rewrite history and say when Silva loses it is just bad luck or bad focus and when he wins it is because he is too good?

Silva is one of the greatest but there are other that also are on that level. Weidman could very well dominate the division as Silva did and he has the style to beat Silva.

I have been saying this ever since Weidman first appeared, he was the one to beat Silva because he just did not give a damn about fame, money or mythical beings.

Silva only beat a lot of other fighters because the idea of Silva was more frightening than the actuality of it. Sonnen would have won had his submission defense been more prepared, Henderson would have won had he kept it wrestling and Lutter was doing a fine job until illegal elbows.

Fact is, Silva has always been beatable even before the Weidman fight, it's just Weidman is younger and more knowledgable in all areas than the others and did not make any mistakes.

Silva lost because he faced a fighter who is extremely dangerous in many facets of MMA, not because he wasn't focused or did'nt care as much anymore.

He was coming off a long layoff, injury, and adrenaline dump and still managed to KO Clownshoes. He ain't scared of shit.
