UFC FANS STILL STILL CAN’T BELIEVE THEIR EYES!
San Francisco, CA- As was the case when Evander Holyfield melted down “Iron Mike” Tyson, people are crying “fix” in regards to Chris Weidman’s second round destruction of Anderson Silva at UFC 162. Why? Because they simply can’t believe it! Like the Tyson fans, the Silva followers are up in arms!
BODY LANGUAGE OF ANDERSON SILVA
The manner in which Silva acted during the fight, dropping his hands and mocking Weidman was something he has done before. But unlike anybody prior, Weidman was not falling for the BS and punched his way to the UFC middleweight (185 lb.) title that Silva had coveted for a record-tying 11 fights!
BOXING IS WHAT GOT WEIDMAN THE WIN!
The shock that Weidman’s left hook, Boxing 101 by the way, sent through MMA fans around the world has been amplified by fans and pundits alike who could not believe what they were witnessing. It really wasn’t the passing of the torch, rather Weidman absconding with the torch by brute force!
SILVA ONLY GLITCH IN MAKING REMATCH
Anderson Silva may not want the penciled in for early 2014 fight in Las Vegas. There’s even been some talk of Weidman-Silva two happening in a Brazilian soccer stadium as it would certainly break any existing live attendance ratings both in heads and dollars and cents. But I don’t think the Brazilian Police could protect Weidman if he were to the expected and knock Silva out again!
