Just out of curiousity, what did Silva do in the fight to make it competitive? He got taken down, GnP'd, with a submission attempt on him.

The only thing I recall Silva doing was his crazy head bobbing and dance moves.

He took Weidman's gnp and got out of the leg lock. Then he landed kicks at will. Problem was he was taunting a wee too much. It was quick, but it was competitive up to that point. Serra vs GSP 1 wasn't competitive because Serra landed all the punches before proceeding to TKO him. Incidently the 2nd match wasn't competitive when GSP returned the favor albeit for multiple rounds.

I'm very curious to see how this fight transpires.

Not really...we seen that Hendricks power clearly fades. Someone on here said if it wasn't over by the second that Hendricks wouldn't get a stoppage and that's pretty much what it looked like. Gsp took shots clean after the second and never looked to be in trouble like he was when he got rocked in the second and after that just like the Condit fight Hendricks' power seemed to have lost the edge.

Also I think Georges is plain sick of fighting at this point and was just trying to get through one more for all the records. I'd be suprised if a revitalized gsp had any problems with Hendricks.

GSP got dominated in his fight. He was the weaker fighter, the slightly better striker but without any power behind it it matters not since Hendricks can hold his own and can knock GSP out. GSP needs to land 50 jabs to inflict the amount of damage Hendricks dishes out in 1 punch, Hendricks showed he is the better wrestler. GSP would go into the second fight scared while hendricks would put GSP away in the first due to confidence.

Silva is the better fighter and simply just got caught being stupid.

I am against the idea that Silva lost because he "acted like a fool" Silva lost because he leaned back from the weird right hand back fist and had nowhere else to go for the follow up left hook.

That could happen to Silva at any time since he always leans back like that. Its an easy adjustment though, so he should win.

For GSP-Hendricks, i think Hendricks is only going to get better, his striking will improve and his stamina will improve.... so i would pick him to win a rematch.

Silva lost because he stood with his feet side by side, you're right- he had nowhere to go. He knows this and will not make the same mistake again..

I feel like Anderson thought Weidman was another Okami but with better wrestling and took him rather lightly because of it. The rematch will be amazing.

GSP would lose to Hendricks in a rematch IMO.

GSP. Silva got outclassed everywhere, GSP was competitive. Although I do think Silva will put up a better performance next time but he will still lose.

Silva. He's going to KO Weidman within 2 rounds.

I find this ironic considering GSP walked away with a W (however controversial it was at least close) while Silva got beat up on the ground and knocked completely out cold without a shred of doubt. He didn't even land a punch.

There is no shred of doubt that Hendricks dominated GSP in every category of the fight even though GSP tried his VERY BEST to win imo and the opinion of most others.

Sometimes people get caught just like GSP got caught vs Matt Serra even though GSP was the MUCHHH better fighter. Only difference being that GSP got caught while not messing around and Anderson Silva got caught while dancing and mocking.

Id be willing to make a sig bet on Weidman vs Silva if you are.
