It would be Silva who would've been exhausted and Weidman isn't stupid enough to get caught in a miracle submission. The most likely outcome would have been an easy UD win for Weidman. But of course he knocked him out making it even more impressive.


It's hard to believe that there are multiple people who think like this guy. A fluke win that included an easily won round and then a KO.

I don't like you implying that the smartest man in MMA is stupid

Only problem was silva didn't try hard enough ?...I give credit to anderson's chin though. Any other middle weight wouln't have woken up.

there's a pretty inneresting thread on sherdog about how weidman's older brother abused the crap out of him
when they were younger... helped make him in to who he is today.

he looks almost exactly like chris except red-headed and HW-sized. not to mention he was a gang leader and
went to prison, it seems.

http://forums.sherdog.com/forums/f2/...other-2776015/

when you survive a monster like that, it prolly takes away a lot of the awe you'd otherwise have for people like
silva and machida. remember that little 'bring it on' gesture weidman made at the end of round five? well, he
survived a 10-lb weight being dropped on his face when he was a kid... things like that.

What's the deal with Penn's upright stance?

I don't know what Penn is doing. i don't know how he expects to get any power in his punches fighting compact like that. it looks so stupid.

i never thought BJ was a very intelligent guy to begin with but this is ridiculous.

Edgar is tearing him apart right now. BJ fukking sux these days


PS i like the 2 new UFC guys from Ultimate Fighter

Penn basically let Edgar punches and takes him down and wins.

I totally forgot about this event because BJ Penn is so irrelevant right now. Frankie must have gotten a good payday to take such a pointless fight. Was this season of TUF any good?

BJ knew he was outmatched i guess and tried to minimize damage. crazy thing is it sounded like he knew it going into this fight from the start. BJ always had problems keeping in shape, and i'm assumming he knew he wasn't ready for this fight(or rather too washed up).

it wasn't a very good season imo. i thought previous seasons were more interesting but the 2 fighters that came out and got UFC contracts have real good potential.

one is real raw but tons of heart. biceps are huge. he has a Cormier personality.

the other(bigger black guy) is a workhorse, ridiculous prractice ethic, good head, and a lot of power in everything he throws.
