    Why is MMA wasted on so many stupid fans?

    Don't have to lump everyone in with me, seems like I'm the only stupid fan who thought it looked weird.

    Not just GSP, but GSP, Jones, and Rhonda. First guess would be the cover of the EA MMA game maybe?

    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.

    Yeah, I missed it...

    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.

Irvin, Bonnar, Griffin - he treated them like pests and then disposed of them, this type of bullshitting has added a lot to why Anderson was such a enigma - he would clown people and no one could do anything about it.

    I hate the idea that he Anderson finally gets caught doing his bullshit, but then people think he lost on purpose. I don't even think you can say that Anderson wasn't fighting at his best, he was into his groove, which is the worst spot for him to be if you're his opponent. Anderson was taking all of Weidman's punches no problem and was clowning - then he got clowned. If you go out, put your hands down, and just dance around you'll either look really impressive by not getting hit - or you'll get hit and get knocked the fuck out. It was impossible for Anderson to lose in a traditional way with the way he was fighting.
    I agree, however the level of competition, from a guy like Bonnar, Griffin, Irvin, Cote, Maia next to a guy of Weidman's caliber and hard ranking(who I'd have next to Anderson's fights against Vitor and Okami) should've warranted a different level of seriousness from Anderson, which I don't think was there tonight, which to me, felt off. I think Anderson comes in differently to bouts against guys who could actually beat him(which I'd count Weidman among), as opposed to say, a Leites or Cote and tonight, he treated a main eventer like a prelim scrub.

    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 know, I was just poking a lil fun at RD. I know he said Silva was losing.... but that doesn't mean that he didn't deep down was praying for a Silva win.

    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.

    I don't think he threw the fight...I think he finally got too cocky with a guy he should not have. Fedor never did this shit because he knew eventually he would lose.
