I hope weidmann keeps the belt for a long time because after silva that is a free for all within top 10 anyone can snag the belt from you.. the only one that i can see hold that for a long time would be vitor or chael....
Remember though Weidman did win the first round of the fight. It's not like Silva was crushing him before he got caught. Weidman took him down within a minute of the first round and pounded on him while Silva never really got much offense in. Did it do a LOT of damage? No, but Weidman still won the first round by a pretty large margin
Yeah sure, he won the 1st round, he took him down and got a couple of punches in, but did that prove that he was a better fighter than Anderson? No.
But okay, let's say he won the first round, so what? It's not like they went on for 5 rounds and Weidman won all 5 of them. And I wouldn't say he won that 1st round by a LARGE MARGIN, it was just a 10-9 round for Weidman. Lulz
People, enough with the bashing already. It's not the end of the world. And on top of that, it's his life, not yours. HE CAN DO WHATEVER THE F** HE WANTS.
Upset with the unfair criticism that he has received, Anderson Silva tweeted in Portuguese:
“Thank you Brazil. What you know is worth nothing, what really matters is what you do with what you know. Before you judge my life, or my character, put on my shoes and walk my walk, feel my disappointments, my doubts and my happiness. Live the life I lived, fall down where I fell down, stand up like I did, just then you’ll be able to judge me.”
Still smh @ Silva... i know he loves to showboat and i know he has a great chin, but here he exaggerated so god damn bad, literally allowed and dared Weidman to punch him for an entire round, extremly literally speaking... hands down, smiling/laughing, pointing his chin up to the rafters and slaping himself on the face taunting Weidman to hit him over and over and over....
And now, a guy who could be beaten EASILY by at least 10-15 fighters at that weightclass is a Champion.... great job Silva
LOL at this.
Name 10-15 fighters that can EASILY beat Chris Weidman. Anderson Silva didn't even EASILY beat Chris Weidman before he so-called "threw" (which is so disrespectful to not only Weidman but Anderson) the fight against Chris. Anderson didn't win a single second of that fight unless you count taunting like a fool as one of your criteria as "winning" the fight.
It's fking hilarious. Anderson matrixes Forrest Griffin, Bonnar, Okami, and parts of Franklin II and even Sonnen II and people are all over Anderson's nuts cause that's what makes him special: the fact that he can do that and still KTFO someone. Picture posted in the last page is perfect. Anderson matrixes Weidman and people go fking crazy like he "threw" the fight. No, Anderson did what he always does when people don't wrecklessly charge at him and this time someone actually had the skill and composure to hit him and KHTFO and all people can do is discredit Weidman.
There's a reason why Chris Weidman has tons of hype and fighters predicting that he would win the fight: because he was that good, and this guy is only going to get better with his world-class wrestling and jiu jitsu on top of his rapidly improving striking game. And if you think anyone is going to "easily" beat Weidman you're going to be waiting for a very, very long time.

It actually means he's ranked #10 by the UFC, but they're terrible at ranking fighters anyways. He's not ranked at other sites because he left the MW division and went back to LHW, therefore he shouldn't be ranked. He'd probably be ranked #4 had he gone back to MW.
Chael vs Vitor #1 contender match
Chael went back to LHW and is fighting Shogun. I don't think anyone wants to see Chael in a title fight anytime soon. Not even you.
Michael Falco was viciously bashed in Brazil at a gas station after he disrespected two women and a group of men jumped him got dropped than got weapons smashed him and another guy over the head with the weaps and repeatedly brutally kicked in the head while he was out. There's a video of it on Worldstarhihop.
He's in a critical condition, crazy how the guy who got a break into the UFC cause of Falco being pulled from a card, just won a title against P4P the best fighter and this happens to Falco (part his own fault but massive coward act by the other group).
