In regards to Anderson being relatively content with losing like an idiot - I think it's fair to speculate that Anderson doesn't really care too much about being the champion anymore - his post-fight interview certainly would suggest that. That doesn't mean that Anderson purposely lost, and it doesn't mean that he wasn't trying to win - like I said earlier, Anderson has done this shit before and won - so if you think he threw this fight by acting like a clown, I guess he was throwing the Griffin fight before crushing him; I guess he was throwing the James Irvin fight before firing a piston-like right straight into his jaw; I guess he was throwing the fight versus Bonnar before he finished him. Get real people.
Personally, I think Anderson lost the eye of the tiger passion-wise to defend the title to his fullest capacity. He's incredibly arrogant and that killed him tonight, but the aloof style of fighting didn't make sense TO ME because I don't think a guy like Weidman affords Anderson that luxury of clowning to-that-degree that he's done in the past.
I don't think DIVE is the right word, Weidman won fair and square and that could've very well been Bonnar's moment in the sun the way Anderson fought him......but, I don't think Anderson went in there with the same passion to excel as a GSP, Cain or Jones does.
I wish we could see the reaction of fighters that saw what just happened.
What a crazy story for Chris Weidman. It is movie like as mentioned. I really hope he can remain champion for now.
7/6/2013 The MW king was slayed.
Funny how Silva's first opponent in the UFC, Leben, fought on the same card as him getting dethroned 7 years later.
RD is a cool guy nowadays. Stop being fucking tools towards him. Busting someone's balls is one thing, but being a cunt is another.
Holy shit that was awesome! Great night of fights! All hail the new champ. And may the former champ still put on some epic fights.
