Anderson Silva: Weidman Shouldn’t Consider It A Win

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.”

  • Kevin Malarick


  • Dave Shpak

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

  • Nathan Greene

    He owned u the first round. Who walked out with the belt?

  • Brendon Bra

    LOOOOL silva was getting pumped he nearly got stoped in the first round :L

  • Dwayne McAlister

    all I know is who has the belt. And who has the W on they’re record. Thats what counts

  • Dustin Engelke

    He kicked your a$$ the same this fight as he did the last. You threw the kick, he checked it, calculated…game over, Chump not a champ

  • Vic Mayfield

    Yeah, well I still say that guy in 5th grade didn’t kick my ass….but everyone watching says he did

  • Damon Cochrane

    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!

  • Wendell Steele

    Silva is an idiot.

  • Denis Kr

    Patrick Cote fight shouldn’t be considered a win too I guess then..

  • Dylan Dza Walker

    Lightening struck twice for Chris….

  • Paul Schmadeke

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

  • Ken Pfeiffer

    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.

  • Jim Derck

    Lol Silva Is Butthurt

  • Kevin Vazza Ravazza

    Seriously Weidman didn’t do shit, Vito Belfort will beat him

  • Ryan Leach

    So his Cote win must not count to him?

  • Skyler Greer

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

  • Dom Montano

    Vegas considered it a win so that’s good enough for me

  • Dale Cuffee

    Christopher Fred Tafel

  • Christopher Fred Tafel

    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.

  • Joe Davila

    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.

  • Jose Guerrero

    Excuses, sore losers

  • Kyle Shane

    Brian Johnson

  • Jake Seal

    You people are morons. You give longtime MMA fans a bad name.

  • Jt Churpakovich

    wow talk about sour grapes?!!!

  • Michael Preston

    Two fights, four rounds and Silva didn’t win NOT A ONE….Get over it!

  • Ilha de Itamaraca

    Come on….Anderson a win is a win, whether you get knocked out….oh shit you did the first time, or you cannot continue cause your a pussy or weak r you broke something….oh yea that was the second time you fight the same guy…..YOU LOST…PERIOD

  • Adam Provens

    Silva has excuses for the sonnen fight and now the Weidman fights. You lost get over it already.

  • Cory Richardson

    I’m sure he is.disappointed but he lost, that’s all he lost.

  • Matt Pascal

    After 7 years his Achilles heel in wrestling has been discovered and there are now many fighters that can take him out

  • Kenny Bass

    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!

  • Rene Catcheway

    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.
