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.
Weidman is not a scrub... but compared to Silva... he is... anybody at that class is....
Silva has learned his lesson, really wanted him to be more serious, hopefully this does it... after toying 24-7 with opponents like this a fighter like that becomes naturally overconfident and underestimates his opponents eventually, maye even doesnt work hard enough pre-fight, he tries new things to make it more fun/competitive for him and thats how this happens, you get caught....
Now, please quote this... Silva will come back and make this guy sleep next time...
