Call me a nutjob but I think both Weidman/Silva 2 and Condit/Woodley are not legit wins and have big ass asterisks. So do Shogun/Coleman, Anderson/Cote and Maia/StunGun.

I thought Woodley was comfortably winning the exchanges up to the point of the injury.

Condit did not seem himself from the get go. I know he always starts slow but Woodley landed some solid shots.

Weidman used a pair of devastating knee spikes to break Silva's leg. That's different than a freak occurrence during a takedown. The knee spike is designed to do what it did to Silva; a double-leg takedown is not designed to tear the ACL.

Its like u guys never saw a Condit fight b4... unlike his oponnents he fights full throtle untill the last second of the fight ..
Condit ate Tyron's best shots like it were nothing...
In the 2nd round Woodly , he gassed out and had absoluty nothing else , just the takedown and even there he couldnt do dmg ...

HOW IS WINNING BY INJURING THE OPPONENT UNINTENTIONALLY ,A CLEAR WIN ?..its still a win but how is that skill if you dont mean to do that... give me a f brake

like i said the only way Woodly couldve won was with his takedowns like in Condit vs henddriks fight...

The difference to me is that Condit got hurt on that takedown (I believe) which is a freak thing to happen. Silva/Weidman was a freak thing to some extent, but it was become of the way Weidman was checking the leg kicks that were at least partially responsible for Silva going down. Plus, Weidman dominated the first fight and was dominating the second fight. I love Condit and he does better as the fight goes on, but Woodley deserves credit that he's not getting for the fact that he was winning up until this happened. But hard to get a title shot off a freak accident injury, but it's not like UFC has criteria.

This is insane. Weidman exploited Anderson's mistake of throwing full speed leg kicks with no setup. If a fighter makes a mistake that gets exploited and it results in his loss that's not a fluke. Wake up people

I guess it depends on who you talk to. I personally don't consider either fights earned wins. I think both fighters got lucky...

Whaaat? YOU? Wahahahaha !!! Good try on that one, TJ. Or I should read you just made a sharp turn in your life, heading away from prejudice for good, effective from the date of this post of yours on? If that is the case, CONGRATULATIONS. After all, nobody wants to see your posts being deleted again for displaying those so "kind" words against a designated group of people you don't even know.

I don't think you really understand what she was getting at. Kind of a Seinfeld perspective is what I got, stop complaining about race, stop bringing it up. Go to work, don't complain, don't use excuses is what I gathered. Not that she's against any race, just against useless victimization.
