    Default Anderson Silva shipped off to Thailand to fix 'technical error' for UFC 168 rematch

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/7/30/45...68-rematch-mma

    ormer Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is not blaming his corner for getting knocked out by Chris Weidman at the UFC 162 pay-per-view (PPV) event earlier this month in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch the replay here).

    After all, he's the one who "lost control."

    Be that as it may, "The Spider" knows he has some work to do if he plans to do a victory lap following his "All American" rematch at UFC 168, scheduled for Dec. 28, 2013 at "Sin City's" MGM Grand Garden Arena (more on that here).

    First stop on the rebound tour? Thailand, where the Brazilian can tighten up his Muay Thai (via Esportes):


    "I did not have to put the blame on my team. Who made ​​the mistake was me. I've made ​​a technical error, I cannot put the blame on my team. Now is reviewing what I did wrong technically, that is something we are already doing, and think forward. We have a nice workout calendar, soon going to Thailand to spend time there and then back to finish our training in Rio."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Actually he got clipped while he was dodging. The technical error was him not judging distance accurately not to mention he swung the wrong way. An even bigger mistake was dropping his guard and letting someone punch him in the face.

    A trip to Thailand seems pretty excessive just to learn not to be a dancing jackass. Any instructor at the YMCA can fix his "technical error". KEEP YOUR HANDS UP.

    If Silva is taking this fight seriously.......................we should have one hell of a fight.

    His only technical error was that he stopped dodging Chris Weidman, and I mean that in more than one way.

    Burn.

    The big error I saw was he got himself into a position where his stance was square to Weidman's. He ran out of room to move and got caught with nowhere to go
