    Weidman: This is my game plan

    "I知 going to prove it again. I知 telling Anderson Silva my game plan. This is my game plan. I知 gonna walk forward, I知 gonna put pressure on him, I知 gonna cut him off. If he has his hands down, I知 punching him in his face. If he has his hands up, and he痴 expecting me to punch him in his face, I知 taking him down. I知 not afraid to get hit. I知 going to be walking forward with my chin down, and my teeth gritted, and I don稚 care what he throws at me, I知 gonna be there."

    I think Anderson is great fighter, but I just fell like Chris is going to repeat his performance in the rematch. I don't think he is going to knock him out; but he will win the fight. I just feel that he has the tools to beat Anderson.

    Yawn.

    Thread #129 about Anderson's first loss in the UFC.




    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

    But yes, his actions have been ridiculous at times, especially in the Weidman fight. I surely didn't want to see a fighter taunt and get KO'd because of it in what was a highly anticipated main event. I'm sure alot of Anderson haters and Weidman fans enjoyed it. I just wanted to see both fighters give their best, and I don't feel Anderson did that. He still deserved to lose, he made his own bed. But that wasn't his best.
    Look I agree in a way. Anderson is one of my all time favs. the problem I have is the way you put it, "He's a bit cocky". Just be humble....like Ace Franklin. This is why I like Wiedman, he said that was the fight and he would do it again with no issue.

    I know he "comes to answering questions" and I do like Anderson but damn. I mean come on guy everyone gets beat. So I love Anderson but be a man about it and don't seem like it was a fluke. Anderson put his hands down and got caught on the chin by a STRONG MW and put away.

    I am a Anderson fan but this is stupid. His mistakes where
    1. standing in front of a powerful MW with his chin in the air and his hands around his waist.
    2. Hiring Ed Soares
    3. Not firing Ed

    Excuse are like ass holes everyone has them. Anderson needs to take it on the chin (pun intended) and move forward towards improvement or retire. Take the fights for real or do not do them. Something you think he would have learned after the Maia fight when everyone jump him afterwords.

    He probably shouldn't have let Chris punch him in the face...

    It was definitely dumb of Anderson...I expect the calculated Anderson from the Vitor and Hendo fights to show up and put Weidman away in the rematch.

    Basically his mistake was basically taunting and leaving his arms down and chin up. Basically disrespecting his opponents strength as well as mis judging his reach. Which led to him getting basically KTFO.

    Taunting like a jackass and clowningaround against a guy that wasn't afraid of him was his mistake.
