Silva gets a shot at the title anytime he wants to come back, he'd more than earned it. When you defend your title as many times as he did, you've earned it. Doesn't matter if he goofed and lost, the numbers for the rematch would be HUGE. I don't understand why Silva haters don't want a rematch, Clearly Weidman is a superior fighter. So what the problem? He'll probably destroy Silva again right? Personally I have no problem with him retiring. Even if he wins 20 more fights by KO, what's the point? This is a dynamic exit in many ways fitting for his dynamic career. Lots of what ifs and arguments for years over this fight......
The real question is which Anderson shows up for the rematch meaning, I bet he does not play games and act hurt in the rematch.
Anderson still has one of the best skillsets we have ever seen...so I cant wait for the rematch
I don't see how anyone has earned a title shot right after they lost a title fight unless the judges screwed them. He got knocked out, and he screwed himself. His fans can make all the excuses they want, but he got beat.
