Anderson got cocky, simple as that. All respect for Weidman because I doubt anyone else could of KO'd Silva given that same situation.
July 10, 2013 at 8:40 pm
I bet vitor at the VERY least could have KO'd anderson in that situation…..rethink your answer.
July 10, 2013 at 11:25 am
I just want to see Anderson fight, whether its for the belt or not isnt a huge deal since he isnt like GSP and can finish guys with 3 rounds. Maybe now we can see some fights that wouldn't happen when he was champ, like watching him KO Bisping.
He wasn't my favourite cause he had every record along with his belt, its because of how awesome he fights.
July 10, 2013 at 11:51 am
Weidman beat him, plain and simple. There is no poll, this is stupid. Silva is arrogant and always has been. He deserved to lose.
July 10, 2013 at 1:14 pm
Haters gonna hate.
You did see the "Weidman is a better fighter" right?
Don't cry cause most people don't agree.
July 10, 2013 at 2:35 pm
You are right Cage, who gives a flying fluck what anyone thinks, or calls you names.
Weidman came to win and fight, he did just that, HE WON, get the fluck over it all you cry baby excuse making dooshbags. Say what you want, WEIDMAN is your NEW CHAMP. Im out of here, until all this Silva BS is gone.
July 10, 2013 at 4:07 pm
chael is that you??
July 10, 2013 at 11:52 am
How about, Weidman kept his composure.
July 10, 2013 at 11:54 am
I agree with MAMBA24ILL
It was a combination of factors
1. Anderson was no longer interested in being a champ
2. He was cocky ( As always), so no surprise there, I don't think he was any more cocky than he always is.
3. He did appreciate Weidman's ground skills, and therefore did not want anything to do with it, especially after first round. Hence the talking and taunting in the octagon.
I also think he was wary of any more take downs and therefore was hesitant in committing to anything. Knowing very well that if he gave the smallest of the opportunity to Weidman and if Weidman wanted to take him down, then it would happen.
My prediction for a rematch.
1. A cocky Anderson Silva, but much less than what we have gotten accustomed too. After all that's his style of fighting, but this time his hands are going to stay up.
2. A very focused and stick to the game plan version of Weidmann. So I expect many more take downs and take down efforts.
3. Anderson landing some great strikes. Weidmann will realize he is in a fight this time, which should further confirm his take down game plan.
4. Majority of the fight on the ground, with Weidmann as Still the champion via unanimous decision
July 10, 2013 at 12:14 pm
4. Maybe he just wanted to lose after all.
July 10, 2013 at 12:15 pm
Weidman punched him right on the chin. That is why he is the new champion.
July 10, 2013 at 12:48 pm
As I'm sure these two fighters would exchange victories and losses, I think the appropriate answer is #5 and the question should (really) be, what was the reason behind Anderson's loss on July 6th?
To me, Weidman was the vast superior fighter….that night. As much as I love Chris and as much as I think he can / will win a re-match, Anderson could well beat Chris any day and Chris knows it. That's why he trains as hard as he did / does and why he didn't walk into the ring Saturday with his hands down.
Weidman was the better fighter, that night. I think that's all Saturday proved. Of course, the problem for Silva and his fans is, the "I told ya so" moment can't be changed quickly and for now, Weidman's dominance over Silva stands.
Until next they meet, Chris "is" the man and Anderson "was" the man. When next they meet, who knows?
July 10, 2013 at 12:54 pm
The first three reasons are basically the same thing. "Anderson Silva gave the fight away"…
July 10, 2013 at 2:25 pm
Angsome hit the nail on the head.
July 10, 2013 at 2:59 pm
Anderson is tired of being champion MY A-S-S!!!! it was the best night of the year so far when i saw him getting knocked out…HAHAHAHA! still LMAO about it!
July 10, 2013 at 8:43 pm
Ofcourse it was the best night of the year, the fedor guys have been waiting for anderson to give away a win(takase,joker,chonan) so that they can go on about fedors record.
It's ok, i know that's the real reason you hate on anderson.
July 11, 2013 at 12:40 pm
Do you have a problem if i hate that Monkey?
July 11, 2013 at 1:17 pm
We're not in the 60s any more, racist piece 0f $hit.
July 11, 2013 at 1:30 pm
You know that racism is not allowed mark. One more and you will be banned sir.
July 11, 2013 at 2:18 pm
Ok now I have to love him in order to be on this site? if that's the case we all monkeys no? so why I cant call him that way? oh god!! yes he's a monkey, i am monkey too…!
July 10, 2013 at 10:25 pm
Why don't you just give us (Silva fans) what we want…just say "Silva didn't really lost to Weidman via a fcuking awesom KO, just like when he willingly gave Chael 4 1/2 rounds." is that really hard to do? huh?
July 11, 2013 at 2:30 pm
Wall Street Journal is going to reliese some facts about Silva-Weidman fight.
July 13, 2013 at 6:18 am
It is because Steven Seagall wasn't there.
