One thing I want to point out, if you really look closely at the fights.
Every champion has some sort of game plan. Anderson is the only one who seems to improvise still in this modern age. His game is to strike, but he's comfortable on the ground. Every fight ends different usually with some sort of finish as opposed to Mighty Mouse, Bendo/Edgar, DC, Cain or GSP where you pretty much know exactly how the fight is going to transpire. The LHW title holder might be another exception.
I mean not even his cornerman know what he's going to do. That's how talented he is. Some who see him as a "clown" should take it for what it is. It's all part of the act. Much like Chael pre-fight time. Sometimes it's hard to decipher what's real and what's not.
There's a lot on the line for both. Weidman wants to show the world it was no fluke. Anderson to further cement his legacy. Coming back from a devastating loss is one the toughest things to do mentally.
In the GAME OF THRONES only one has ruled for seven years. That is crazy. Every new king seems to get dethroned one right after another. It's going to be strange seeing Anderson Silva come out first. Weidman's first fight was Feb. 20, 2009 and the last time Anderson was the challenger was against Chris Leben June 28, 2006 is all I'm saying.
Video: Chris Weidman: If Silva comes angry for UFC 168 rematch, my job is easier. It was more a radio interview.
Based on the interview, what if Anderson did the same tactics again...haha...but...worked the second time around. That would be interesting.
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
