What Silva says about himself not clowning; I call someone who has their hands completely down, goading his opponent to come over here and hit him, taunting him with his hands down while he is standing right in front of him - that, my friend, even if it doesn't translate from Portuguese, is clowning. I recently watched a broadcast of Silva/Okami. He wasn't doing any of that shit. He got right down to business and kicked Okami's ass. That's the Silva I want to see fight Weidman.
Silva's leg breaking when Weidman checked his kick - certainly, it was a legitimate win. However, were you satisfied with that? It was a freak accident. That shouldn't have been the fight-ender.
I am not taking anything away from Weidman - I am a fan. But at the end of the day, his wins over Silva do leave me dissatisfied. I didn't watch either fight and come away feeling that Weidman dominated Silva's ass, and there's a new king in town. Yes, Weidman is the Champ, but I would love to see them go at it again.
