OBITUARY OF ANDERSON SILVA IN PRINT

Look At Anderson Silva's Broken Leg!

Look At Anderson Silva’s Broken Leg!

San Francisco, CA- When Muhammad Ali stepped in with Larry Holmes in 1980, it was a 38-year old former champion faced a young tiger with whom he had no chance. Fast forward to 2013 and UFC legend Anderson Silva met Chris Weidman. Just like Ali, Silva didn’t look like he could pull the trigger that night.

WEIDMAN SHOWED FIRST FIGHT NO FLUKE!

Hurt a number of times by punches, elbows and forearms, Silva made it out of the first round, as did Weidman who was either stunned or gassed after the first five-minute round and looked confused. Still the round went 10-9 for Weidman.

SILVA’S LEG SNAPPED LIKE A TWIG!

The second round was somewhat uneventful until the 38-year old Silva threw a kick at Weidman who blocked it in such a manner that it broke Silva’s leg, like in half at the calf. Ugly, gruesome, call it what you want, Silva was done as far as the fight was concerned and his career is over period! Nobody comes back from an injury like that at his age.

“ROWDY RONDA” ROCKS THE MGM GRAND!


Ronda Rousey went to 8-0 & 8 armbar submissions in stopping a very game Miesha Tate in round three, this after a good give and take first two rounds. While it was obvious Rousey was winning and in control, Tate’s (13-5) strategy was to take Rousey into the UFC championship rounds of four and five. Seeing Ronda had never seen the second round ever, it was a good plan on paper.

MIESHA TATE GAVE IT HER ALL!

But in the Octagon against the 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist in Judo, the only American female to ever medal in the sport, wanting to employ strategy and doing so are two different things. Rousey threw Tate around with ease, pounded her with both hands, some knees, all the while Tate just wants to put minutes on the clock. But the punishment she was taking was telling and Rousey wasn’t looking even slightly fatigued.

ROUSEY KEPT FISHING FOR ARMBAR(S)

Having escaped a fully extended armbar, Tate was trying to avoid falling prey to Rousey’s patented finishing move, again, as she did in their first meeting won by Rousey inside of one round with, you guessed it, the armbar. But Miesha could not escape that move in round three and tapped out when Ronda locked it in.

RONDA GETS BOOED, REALLY BOOED!

Rousey, 26, was not affected by the fact that she was NOT the crowd favorite. Having made herself the “heel” (or bad girl) Ronda can be downright nasty with her verbal attacks, as can Tate. So when Tate extended her hand after tapping, Ronda refused and said that Tate’s going after her family pissed her off.

JOSH BARNETT THRASHED BY TRAVIS BROWN

Former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett kept trying to take the four inch taller Travis Brown to the ground, but the 6’7 heavyweight defended the takedown moves well. Josh went for a shoot and Brown started hitting him with elbows, Barnett was out on his knees and the referee promptly stopped the contest in round one.

COMMENTS

  1. Weidman will fight Vito Belford next. Can’t wait to see that one. Weidman is in route to become the Brazilian killer. Rousey needs to be more greacious in winning. Hopefully those boos will make her realized that once the fight is over, all the trash talking and feud is over with. That’s how is done in boxing.

  2. His injury was like Joe Theismann’s leg brake against the Giants. Just gruesome. I’m glad Weidman didn’t jump on him to get in one more punch as others have done to fighters who were KO’d before they hit the ground.

  4. Weidman’s trainer Ray Longo perfected that defense against the leg kicks from Anderson by putting the knee to Silva’s shin. Longo calls it the “destruction move” and it worked. We might see more fighters using this defense in the future.
