Weidman is gassed and beaten up. He should just play it extremely safe here to get the decision. Come on Machida!

The takedown ended the fight. Good effort by Machida but he had a slim chance after doing little in the first 3 rounds.

Great fight though.

Lyoto Machida

Dat Capoeira kick he tried to pull at the end of round 4

Weidman is a freakin' tank. The guy just moves forward and punches and takes punches and takes down and wins. He looked gassed and threw less attacks by round 4 but still just went on.

Fluke win against Silva
Fluke injury by Silva
Loses a round in first title defense.


I know the UFC is high on Weidman, but really needs a decisive victory to elevate him to superstar status that they are trying to market him as.

I'm not sold yet that's its the Weidman era.

so now we see the biggest hole in weidman's game-- being such a big dude cutting down to 185 makes him vulnerable to gassing in late rounds. his normally super-effective defense goes way down in efficiency.


still, hats off to machida for pressing the initiative and going against his regular style to beat weidman up a good bit. imagine if he was 30 like chris and not an aging 36...


belfort doesn't even deserve a title shot IMO. but at the very least it needs to happen in vegas, where he'll likely get either busted or exposed.

Better add some more red to that bar under the name. Need a better reminder to not read any future posts.

A "fluke win" where a fighter easily won the 1st round and then got a KO in the 2nd. Wow.

At this point I think Rousey is actually bad for women's MMA. It would probably help the division if she retired for a little while and let some of the other women fight over the belt. The UFC simply isn't going to be able to find legitimate competition for Rousey... and people won't continue to pay to see 16 second fights IMO.


Weidman is gonna be a tough guy to beat. It's gonna take someone with better wrestling and cardio who can dictate where the fight takes place. Looking at the MW contenders I don't really see that guy. Maybe one of the LHW's like Rashad Evans or Dan Hendo could make the cut to 185 and give Weidman a fight.

When will Cat Zingano return?

I think she can beat Ronda.

Okay, Weidman has shitty shitty shitty wins over Anderson, but gotta admit, this guy is legit good. I can't see someone on the middleweight beating him right now. His striking has improved alot since his last fight against Anderson. Much more relaxed and fluid. Good win and fck UFC for showing Weidman KOing Anderson over and over again and including it in their entrance song. That shit breaks my heart everytime is see it.
