    The loss does not change what I think of Anderson either. Still love the guy.

    Revenge on who?
    He already defeated Sonnen 2 times. And as far as I know, he has no beef with Shogun.

    The Return Of......
    I think the thing the everyone is forgetting is that Weidman wants the rematch. I doubt he is happy he won while Anderson was playing around. He wants Anderson to put a little more effort into the fight so he can prove he is the champ. It would be a damn good fight....and I honestly don't know which way it would go.

    hadn't really considered that, even though it's what should happen.

    I was thinking Anderson's next fight would be a rematch with the winner of Weidman/Belfort...but I could easily see him utterly wrecking Bisping for a nice payday in the meantime. It's a good money fight he wanted, it's an easy win for him...I can entirely see the attraction there. And it gives time for Weidman to either beat Belfort and get more famous, or to lose to Belfort, who is a much, much easier bout for Anderson.

    (Ignoring the fact that know it was in the contract) I don't think Silva should get an immediate rematch. It is not like it was a close decision.

    You don't give the gifted kid a rewrite just because he didn't study or goofed off during the exam.

    Silva should have to fight a contender first.

    Very casual fans maybe, but Serra vs GSP is probably the biggest upset in the sport. There's been a couple mainstream sports article talking about how Weidman was simply a bad matchup for Silva and stuff like that while suspect in value does ebb it's way into the broader public, therefore casual, consciousness.

    I don't think Weidman being a bad matchup for Silva was the issue. Silva showed both great speed and reflexes, his antics were the chief problem making any solid evaluation for how the fighters match up difficult to analyze.

    Long way of saying you're wrong Freak. Not Harlem wrong, but still wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    One of Soares major headaches was when Silva started speaking for himself

    Yeah I would say GSP/Serra was the biggest upset in MMA. Chris had a huge hype train going into this fight where I don't recall Serra having too much hype. I think they were going with the Rocky story on that one.
