Can we all agree that Weidman deserved a title shot now?
I had a feeling Weidman would win this fight. I had him by TKO in round three for my pick-ems but I thought it would come from GnP certainly didn't see it happening like that.
I don't like this talk of Anderson throwing the fight or beating himself. Sure he got cocky and acted like a clown but he's done that before and went on to destroy his opponent. Make no mistake Weidman WON this fight. That little back hand right before the left was brilliant!
Not to say Anderson didn't make mistakes, clearly he did, but Weidman did what no one else could and capitalized on those mistakes. I think his biggest mistake was the hug between rounds. I thought he was getting into Weidman's head but then that hug calmed Weidman down and reminded him it was just a game.
The rest of the night kinda sucked for me. Hated seeing Boetsch lose again, I really thought he was going to win this one and get back in the hunt and it's always tough to see Leben lose.
