Very casual fans maybe, but Serra vs GSP is probably the biggest upset in the sport. There's been a couple mainstream sports article talking about how Weidman was simply a bad matchup for Silva and stuff like that while suspect in value does ebb it's way into the broader public, therefore casual, consciousness.

Long way of saying you're wrong Freak. Not Harlem wrong, but still wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
(Ignoring the fact that know it was in the contract) I don't think Silva should get an immediate rematch. It is not like it was a close decision.
You don't give the gifted kid a rewrite just because he didn't study or goofed off during the exam.
Silva should have to fight a contender first.
hadn't really considered that, even though it's what should happen.

And it gives time for Weidman to either beat Belfort and get more famous, or to lose to Belfort, who is a much, much easier bout for Anderson.
I think the thing the everyone is forgetting is that Weidman wants the rematch. I doubt he is happy he won while Anderson was playing around. He wants Anderson to put a little more effort into the fight so he can prove he is the champ. It would be a damn good fight....and I honestly don't know which way it would go.
Revenge on who?

The loss does not change what I think of Anderson either. Still love the guy.
