I dont see a rematch happening.. what I DO see happening is Nick Diaz vs Silva. Chalk it down folks, it's gonna happen!
Are you saying the Weidman/Silva fight was the same as the Silva/Maia fight? I don't think you are. Then again I don't know which users may or may not have a handicap, so that might be the case.
I don't think Dana had an issue with Sonnen being disrespectful. Or Rashad trying to clown against Machida and getting KTFO. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume Dana has a problem with showboating and clowning... when it prevents the two fighters from engaging.
That wasn't the case tonight. Or in the last several Anderson fights. Thus Dana continually ballwashing Silva as the greatest fighter in the history of the universe.
Is it clear to you now?
Everyone seems to forget, didn't we almost see this in the first round of Sonnen VS Silva 1?
I'm not shocked by any mean if you're going to behave like that in a fight
It's part of his game and he got caught doing it. He is still the GOAT, but there is no reason to discredit Weidman for winning as he did
There's too many weird things about this for me. Silva was clearly frustrating chris with his taunting and disrespect, clearly getting in his head finally. At the bell he hugs weidman and kisses him on the cheek or something and helps weidman keep some confidence. Then he just kept asking weidman to drop him, Silva never really threw any fight ending blows at Chris imo.
Anyway, Weidman showed more tobme why he's not ready to be champion. Vitor wrecks him, Jacare subs him, Bisping would be interesting, Munoz I think wins a rematch 6 outta 10 times
Weidman deserves all the credit. He won the first round, then put out Silva cold on a reaching shot. People will want to color with whatever bias they favor but at the end of the day Chris is the legitimate Champion and Anderson is the owner of the greatest UFC run of all time.
