It's not cw's fault, but that doesn't make it any less true. Just like Velasquez vs dos santos 1, we didn't see te real fight sorta speak. We saw silva get caught, and he got caught while acting the fool. This fight is not going to be the same fight...
so when AS finishes Weidman within the first 2 rounds will we see the trilogy right away....?
WE ARE ALL WITNESS: JANUARY 3, 2015
Glad to see this happening again next. Silva earned his rematch and I'm so glad Dana knew that. Should be another barnburner !! Can't wait for this one to go down!
Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.
I think if Silva wins by split decision, unlikely as that may be, I think that would definitely set up a trilogy fight. After that, maybe Silva gets a super fight with either Jones or GSP. I'd say Jones is the more likely of those two, since GSP hasn't committed to the idea of it.
Of course if Silva demolishes Weidman, I think they'd be quick to set up Jones or GSP.
This fight can't be compared to frankie v penn. Those were competitive, here it was more a case of getting caught. Silva never really put no offense in. Weidman shined on the ground. His stand up looked whatever, Serra also caught gsp. The rematch will be interesting but I think Weidman has a better chance grinding a decision.
If Silva comes out and destroys him, which I am one of them that think he will come out focused and swinging, then everyone will pretty much know that his first loss since 2006 was not because his opponent was better, but because AS was dicking around not taking it seriously.
If, however, it's a grueling match like the first Chael fight, then not so much; regardless of if he wins. And that would be the source of an immediate 3rd fight.
Edit: And, if for some strange reason only AS knows, he comes out dicking around again.........then I am going to hope for another loss in the same manner........and I won't be looking forward to anymore fights of his. But that is only if he comes out dicking around again.......I can't, in this Universe or beyond, see that happening.
