    I don't see how anyone has earned a title shot right after they lost a title fight unless the judges screwed them. He got knocked out, and he screwed himself. His fans can make all the excuses they want, but he got beat.

    The real question is which Anderson shows up for the rematch meaning, I bet he does not play games and act hurt in the rematch.

    Anderson still has one of the best skillsets we have ever seen...so I cant wait for the rematch

    That is exactly what I thought before watching this fight.

    I'm a fan of Silva. I just dont think clowning around with your hands by your hips and getting knocked out warrants an immediate rematch.

He'll probably destroy Silva again right? Personally I have no problem with him retiring. Even if he wins 20 more fights by KO, what's the point? This is a dynamic exit in many ways fitting for his dynamic career. Lots of what ifs and arguments for years over this fight......

    Before the fight I wasn't opposed to Silva getting an immediate rematch, but after that performance I would rather see him win a fight or two first. That fight left me feeling ripped off as a paying fan even though the rest of the card was good and his lack of respect for Weidman as an opponent devalued Weidmans performance in his biggest moment even though did everything he could have and should have done. I don't really want to pay for another ppv that Silva is headlining unless either its stacked around him or I see that he is fighting aggressively for a fight or two first.
    Well at least you enjoyed the card. I thought it sucked with the exception of the Edgar/Olivera fight. That Tim Kennedy fight was horrid for me.

    I am not sure about feeling ripped off, seeing Anderson act a fool and get KO'd was well worth the ppv.

    There's a possibility he may have taken it too far this time.
    I was looking for a gif that would basically imply something along the lines of "Really?" or "No shit...". Instead I found this (it's not relevant, but holy shit look how high that fucker jumps!):

    Soares: Silva 'may have taken it too far this time'
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...far-this-time/
    It is not uncommon for Anderson Silva to put his hands down to draw his opponent into a striking match. He's done it successfully in previous bouts, however it may have cost him his UFC title as Chris Weidman capitalized and knocked out the champion at this past Saturday's UFC 162. Long time manager Ed Soares spoke on the antics, agreeing that maybe this time it was too much:

    On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Soares conceded this wasn't the first time Silva has behaved in such a manner during his fights. This time, it caught up with him.

    "I think he went out there and was taunting him and doing certain things Anderson does once in awhile," Soares said. "There's a possibility he may have taken it too far this time. And unfortunately he wasn't able to walk away with the W."

    Still, though, Soares has been around the fight business a long time, both as a manager and as promoter of the Resurrection Fighting Alliance. So he knows by this point to take the good with the bad.

    "You move left when you should have moved right, and your night can end," Soares said. "Unfortunately, Anderson has a tendency to walk on that tightrope of taking risks. It's part of the reason people like to watch him fight is because he takes those type of risks. Unfortunately, Saturday night, didn't go his way."

    Everybody is in there for their own reasons, and he's in there to do something great, and he challenges himself to be able to do his antics while he's right there in the danger zone, and he was doing his thing.
