    Aww, poor Jon Jones afraid that Anderson might come after his belt at the LHW?

    Either way a professional fighter should not urge anyone of his peers to retire even if asked about it. It easily comes out as disrespectful. I'm hoping Silva beats Jones twice and then urges Jon Jones to retire after two losses with his funny/bad english, because well... that would be pretty damn funny
    Favourite fighters: Mark Hunt, Tom Niinimäki and Anton Kuivanen

    I know im prob gonna get flames for this but i really urge you guys to re-watch the second fight. Chris wasn't as dominating as people make out.

    He definatley wobbled Silva though and won the round, but it was breif and was still a 10-9 round.

    Anderson wasn't being overly confident. He wasn't clowning.
    It's part of his strategy. Anderson employs a reach advantage [in addition to a better striking skill base] in the majority of his fights. He uses head movement to stay just out of reach of his opponents, gets them to over commit to the strike, and then effectively counters. His counters are effective because he's got a great skill set, but also because while he's just out of their range, they're still in his range.

    That didn't work with Weidman. Chris is a big, big MW, with the same reach as Anderson. Not only that, Weidman doubled up on the left before delivering the right, instead of haplessly windmilling alternate lefts and rights like others have.

    So yes, Weidman capitalized. No, it wasn't a matter of Anderson being over confident.

    Getting "destroyed" is a bit of a stretch, although he was convincingly finished in both fights. Again, I wouldn't call it "domination," but both wins were convincing. Anderson was in trouble on multiple occasions in both bouts. Chris was never in trouble in either of them.

    I don't think you'll get flamed for that. I've yet to read anyone - on any forum - who thinks Rd 1 was 10-8 to Weidman.

    If Andersons's two losses against Weidman were flukish, then so are his wins against Cote and Belfort.

    Weidman's wins are legitimate.

    ^^^^ No one seems to remember backing Silva on his wins over Vitor or Patrick you know what its the celebrity factor Chris needs Ralph Machio to come out and say he trained him on the whole thing.

    I haven't seen that. Do you have a link?
    I've seen where Silva said he was trying his hardest to win, that it was part of his strategy and he wasn't clowning. I haven't seen him admit that it was "poor technique."

    I don't know that a technical error automatically translates to "poor technique." It could easily be ascribed to misjudging the distance to effectively counterstrike.
