I almost guarantee you he wishes he didn't have to fight Silva again.

Silva was starting to clown Weidman just like he does every other fighter. He was winning the striking exchanges, stuffed Weidman's crappy takedown and had already changed the momentum from Weidman's 1st round takedowns. And most of all Weidman already looked like he was slowing down.

Silva screwed up plain and simple. He stood right in front of Weidman with his legs side by side bent at the knee with his hands at his waist... You can't put yourself in much more of a dangerous position then that.

Silva is not going to make that mistake again. Sure he will likely clown with Weidman but that is because it is his style and how he gets into other fighters heads. He won't go full retard this time though and unless Weidman can somehow win the fight on the ground in the first round Silva will take the momentum again and this time probably knock out Weidman after he slows/gases again...

Actually no you can't. You're in no position to make such a claim, especially in light of the fact Weidman did nothing but talk of a rematch after the fight.

No, actually he wasn't. In fact, Silva couldn't land with his hands at all. He actually couldn't reach Weidman. The only thing he was able to land was a leg kick in 7 minutes.

After realizing this, he started trying to get Weidman to over commit, and got clocked.

That's the real story. Silva clowned just like he always does, but couldn't find Weidman with his hands. That's the difference. That's why the night didn't go well for him.

Now you can argue he wasn't himself, or that his striking wasn't up to par that night. But you can't say Silva was dominating and got caught. Weidman was winning the exchanges both on the ground and the feet.

What do you expect him to say when he is being asked about rematches etc? No I don't want a rematch? He knew Silva had the choice whether or not they would have rematch so treated the situation as such.

Weidman was not winning he exchanges after the first 3 minutes or so. Silva wasn't dominating but was the one controlling the fight while Weidman was just standing around throwing crappy punches and waiting/hoping Silva would make a mistake. For example in 2nd round Silva landed 5 of 6 punches, Weidman only 5 of 16 and Silva stuffed Weidman's only takedown attempt. Even in the first round the strike total was pretty much even although Weidman had much more control earlier on.

I give Weidman credit for taking advantage of the situation and capitalizing on it but I just do not see it happening again. Too many people are giving Weidman too much credit just because they wanted to see Silva get caught. The fact is that is all that happened, Silva got caught. The fight was going no different then any other fight and if the second fight goes the same way it is unlikely that Weidman gets that lucky again.

Weidman put Silva on his back faster then a warm knife through butter and then proceeded to drop bombs on his face repeatedly amongst other things. Weidman also dominated the entire fight every where it went. You're memory about what happened that night needs a refresh,







The only thing that happened was Weidman giving the former champ the beat down of his life.

I'm not saying Silva can't win the next fight because he certainly can, I'm leaning on Weidman to repeat but to rule out Silva is beyond stupid.

Your point? I wasn't planning on Silva making such a bad mistake and getting caught doing it(hasn't happened before so why should I expect it). Any person who thinks Weidman is actually the better striker based on this last fight is smoking something.

What Weidman fans should be concerned about is his failure to be dominant with his wrestling/submissions(outside first 3 minutes). Not be obsessed with how Silva paid for one of his few major mistakes. If Weidman is hoping Silva will make such a mistake again in the rematch he is going to be in for a surprise.

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.

http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...-job-is-easier

Based on the interview, what if Anderson did the same tactics again...haha...but...worked the second time around. That would be interesting.

Yeah it is like someone is show boating then all his strikes get double score. Of course it isn't and just because he was clowning does not mean he was dominating. Silva lost to the better man that night.
