human anatomy is an interesting topic. my two cents...



yeah having his head relaxed like that , down and away was a mistake ; if you compare that to the shots that Chael B Sonnen (son) landed on the goat. ..notice how Silva turned with the punch to kinda lesson the impact. Hence no knockdown (close)

that not withstanding, Most of you mma junkies also know, in combination to that, "its that the shot you don't see that hurts the most" because your brain isn't ready for it

Weidman put on a great fight. He was game..that first round was fantastic Both fighters gave as well as they took. props

Wow that's unbelievable that someone so terrible could compile something like that.

Anderson got what he deserved in that fight. The worst kind of loss is when you try to make your opponent look like a fool but then get clowned yourself.

Good job by Weidman. Looking forward to the rematch.

There's not going to be a rematch. Silva said he doesn't want to fight for/with the title anymore.

I'm not going to say Silva didn't take the fight seriously, but I think it gets to a point where he didn't have anything to accomplish anymore as the champ. He beat everyone in his division pretty much. I think anyone who's been this dominant of a champion has to lose something inside of them that drives them to be the very best fighter that they can be.

It was bound to happen. One guy was just super hungry to eat and the other guy was vomiting from years of overfeasting.

Dam didn't know Silva was that old...He must've known that at that age he can't be showboating and dropping you hands since you reflexes aren't the same as they once were.

But anyways it was bound to happen, fighters at that age don't last long.

If there's one thing I learned about MMA over the years, is that you can't take anything a fighter say immediately post fight seriously.

I have no doubt there will be a rematch.

Someone should of asked Silva if he would fight Weidman in a non title fight. He seems crazy enough to do something like that.

A lot of experts were torn on this match, because Weidman is a good wrestler and Silva typically has trouble with wrestlers. I wasn't buying it but then again I'm not an MMA guru.

Munoz fatass is 8th, Chael would win that fight with a hand tied behind his back.


Chael vs Vitor #1 contender match

Chael kinda dropped out of the MW race when he decided to fight Jones and Shogun. But im sure if he opens his mouth wide enough he would get an instant title shot.

If Anderson Silva retires or really just wants to focus on superfights then Vitor is the #1 contender. People kinda hate on Belfort because of the TRT thing but he has been tearing the MW division a new asshole recently.
