so now weidman is a 'scrub'?
listen, people have tagged silva plenty. no one's KO'd him so that's worth something. this was not a TKO. his eyes rolled back, he sat down and tried to grab the ref's leg. he was out.
this wasn't a definitive win for CW but still a historic one. andy's been doing this for years really and weidman didn't didn't let get to his head or become mesmerized by the movement. weidman has all the tools to make a respectful run as champ. of course, he get KO'd by belfort down the line and that's the nature of the sport. if belfort connects, he can put down just about anybody.
