Awkward face-off.

Weidman is coming an long layoff [due to injury] and is facing the best, bad combination. Silva via 2nd round TKO.

Silva is an idiot. Could have been an easy win for him.

Fooled around too much.

This is what he said after

Quote:
Silva, who said he didn't want a rematch, praised Weidman and said, "Chris Weidman has my respect. He's the best. I did my best, but he's the best."

Honestly, he does these antics because he believed that he was virtually invincible.

This is MMA, anything can and will happen. It doesn't take a lot to get KO'd. Anderson learned his lesson the hard way.

The short left hook shut his lights off. The GnP was extra.

Shocked about the results, but after a while, messing around will catch up with you. Silva learned that the hard way tonight, props to Weidman for being the dude to do it!

That was short notice for the Spider. He's not used to taking more then 1 fight every 2 years.

Did he catch him with the first punch on this clip?? The first 20 times I watched it I thought Silva was just bending his legs to fuck with him, but now I think he might have actually been caught on that first punch.

The punch did connect, but Silva was not hurt and was just messing around [in regards to the leg wobbling]. The last left hook did all the damage, it shut off his lights completely.

I don't know - I think that first punch might of crossed some wires for him.

Judging by how he fought and his comments after, it seems that Silva didn't want to be the champ anymore and thus tanked the fight. What other explanation could there be for that sham of an effort?

It's possible, but I doubt it. Right after that punch, his movement was fine and he didn't look dazed at all. Look at this gif:

There is no way he tanked that fight. Why would he risk tarnishing his legacy? Something that Silva has taken a long time to build. Plus, he loses out on millions [purse money, PPV cut and possibly sponsor-ships]. Finally, Silva is the not only the face of MMA in Brazil, he's the biggest sports star along with Neymar [in Brazil]. Why would he throw all that away?

Silva always takes huge risks in fights [keeping his hands down, taunting his opponent, allowing himself to get hit, etc.]. Being that he is the best fighter on the planet, it's worked out for him so far. However, in this fight, he paid the ultimate price. You could only do what he was doing for so long before getting caught. His antics, one of the major reasons why he is so great, pretty much cost him this fight.

I feel like he hasn't really cared about being the champion in the last year or so. He doesn't like the attention of being at the top.
