It didnt work. He played around some more. It still didnt work. Finally he went full retard and got knocked the f*uck out.

Playing jelly legs against somebody you are destroying makes sense. Doing it against somebody who you are not beating at all, is over doing it.
Where's Woodenhead to call our attention for we are discussing over something we agree about - again...

Oh, I know we do mostly agree regards this. But my main bone of contention is that I feel Weidman played a big part in *why* Silva went full retard the way he did. His offence, for the first time ever, was not working for him. He was in totally uncharted territory. For this, Weidman needs to be given immense credit.

How about that? Weidman couldn't finish Anderson on the ground, who got up by his will and never allowed Weidman to take him down again, then, Weidman got frustrated for his plan A wasn't working and decided to go full retard and engage in a striking competition, being a wrestler, against the most feared striker on the planet. But Anderson wasn't landing anything significant on Weidman, but he was clearly not wanting to be under him again, so he went full retard himself trying to make Weidman to keep the fight standing to be dragged to frustration, gassing or a mistake, but, in the battle of full retards, Anderson got the gran prize, but Weidman took the belt. I think...

That isn't true at all. He was having a lot of success with the leg kicks, Chris and his team admitted as much after the fight. The head games were having some affect too but ultimately lead to his KO when he pushed it too far.

I've said this like 3 times in this thread now, but DAMN I'm excited for this fight. Very few fights these days get me pumped up, like on the edge of my seat as they are touching gloves. I can't wait.

Weidman winning nearly every second of both fights/getting Silva out of the ring in under two rounds both times = he fights stupidly? Why? Because he stood with Anderson? You mean he stood with a guy he knocked out cold the first time, dropped the second time, and was in absolutely no danger whatsoever throughout either fight? Or is it that Weidman was perfectly comfortable and confident in his ability to beat Silva standing, and did that very thing?

I think some people have simply yet to realize that Weidman is a better fighter than Anderson is at this point. It happens when new fighters show up and start beating the top guys, so is is what it is.

edit - as prospect said, you guys might just be having fun/being sarcastic, but people have in the past legitimately tried to say that Weidman has low fight IQ/fought stupid by standing with Silva. This post is for them.
