Anderson Silva: Weidman Shouldn’t Consider It A Win

anderson-silva-new

It will go down as a loss on his record, but Anderson Silva doesn’t feel that Chris Weidman should look at his UFC 168 victory as a win.

Silva spoke about the fight in an interview with Globo and

“I believe that, if you pay attention to these technical details, you will see that (checking the kick) was instinct, not something that he trained to do,” Silva said.

“No, I don’t think (Weidman should consider it a win). It was an accident. And I’m pretty sure I would have won the fight.”

During the interview, Silva rewatched the fight and said he made some technical mistakes before throwing the leg kick.

“I can see some technical mistakes I did in the fight,” he said. “To land the perfect kick, I needed to distract him by punching him in the face so he wouldn’t pay attention to the kick. He was protecting the upper part of his body, and he raised the leg instinctively. The kick was so strong he lost balance.”

    How could he consider it a win. He checked a leg kick. It was a FREAK accident. Should have been ruled a no contest.

    Very disrespectful to commit that hard to the leg kicks. You threw it on purpose, he checked it on purpose. And your arrogance once again cost you your belt. You lost!

    Silva needs to shut up, retire, and be remembered as the greatest ever. The more excuses he makes, the more respect he loses.

    Silva is the worst loser there is, both losses were ligit wins for Weidman, first he ko’d silva, the second he ko’d silva but no stoppage so he continued beating his ass, then checked the kick, so yeah Weidman won both fights you poor loser, he will do it again if you return.

    Does Silva remember that Chris already knocked him the the fuck out

    Its a fucking win in my book. That’s like showing up to a drag race and saying a win doesn’t count because your motor blew up halfway down the track. What an idiot.

    and I suppose he shouldn’t consider Sonnen’s loss to him a loss either. What a delusional ass. Take your loss like a man.

    What a poor sport! Weidman beat your ass twice lol!!! He had you out on your feet within 2 min of round one an continued to beat u up until you broke your leg. Not his fault u got week bones old man. Take it like a man am give kid his credit for both times he beat you!

    weidman wins by way of tko lost balance

  • Steve Tenhouse

    That broken leg must have also broken Silva’s memory. He lost every round against Weidman in both fights. I think Silva will lose many more times. Since he has been beaten twice, apponents wont be scared of him anymore. Same thing happend to Fedor.
