    Weidman until he defeats Silva a 2nd time and even than have a hard time getting full credit for what he accomplished. So I can see him wanting and waiting on Silva, but in my eyes he has no right as the challenger to pick the date when no other issues are stopping it.

If all of this is because Silva is targeting Jone Jr., then Weidman should absolutely fight someone else in the interim if he wants to.
    Yet Weidman has said that he does not want to.

    So, if Weidman doesnt want to wait until feb to fight again, can he take another fight in the meantime?

    I'm curious about how the loss will affect Silva. I mean, he's never been knocked out before. Now that Anderson (and the rest of the world) knows that his chin is crackable, I wonder how that will affect his confidence and strategies in future fights. I think he should have taken a warm-up fight before rematching the Kingslayer.

    I agree with BJ/Edgar 1/2 thing. I thought BJ won the first and would murder that bouncy guido (no offense hehe) the second time but it was Edgar who came in with a MUCH MORE refined strategy and BJ looked like he was just there for round 6 -- no improvement.

    In other news, had it gone to the decision Adalaide Byrd would have given it to Silva no matter what -- I hope someone gets the reference here.

    Anytime he has fought a wrestler with the exception of Weidman. His first fight in the UFC against Leben and every fight in Pride. Damn Dana White has the power of influence.

So BJ walks into the second fight thinking I got this. But Edgar had greatly improved and had an even better game plan.

    Weidman knows he won the fight because Silva was goofing around. Thats not to say Weidman wouldnt have won anyway, but the truth is Anderson was clowning and got caught. So Silva comes to the second fight ready to fight....but Weidman has to know this. I think his gameplan and training will be different and he will shock Silva and not only win but finish him again.

    I imagine he'll feel bad about waiting for his payday. But it probably depends on how much better of a pay day it is...
