I've been watching the gif over and over... I'm still trying to figure out why he grabbed Herb Dean's legs

I always thought that every times he did that it was really a lack of respect for the guy in front of him. If you're going to win the fight, there is no need to humiliate a guy who trained months for this fight and is giving everything he has.

Happy to see him so dizzy that he's trying to to do a ankle lock on the ref.

Too bad Weidman didn't connect a few more punches when Silva was down.

That's his technique: Get inside your opponent's head and force him to make mistakes.

Weidman knew that.

I m confused
Anyhow I still get the feeling that if he would ve fought seriously Silva would ve beat him
he'll fight, just not against the top fighters I guess

maybe we'll see Silva vs Sonnen part 10

I was expecting Weidman to destroy Silva through his wrestling and BJJ. Didn't expect Silva to lose via clowning. That's almost as disgraceful as a Bob Sapp fight.

The GSP Silva fight seems less likely to happen now

the reason why anderson acts like an idiot is so that ppl like u could make excuses for him the day loss a fight

anderson has been fighting like a clown for over 7 years, dont let his actions or bs interviews make you think otherwise

Left hook connected. Nothing rigged in regards to Silva getting KO'd. Still baffled by what I saw, and I ain't no Silva fan. Quite happy though that this happened, as I couldn't stand Silva's disrespect towards Weidman... Got what he deserved.

No need to insult him.

That is still a dumb way to lose, even for a legend.

of course the ref is going to step in. After he tagged him with the left, he was semi-conscious. Any fighter taking head shots in that state can suffer permanent brain damage

thats where your wrong, you assume he loss in a dumb way because no one has ever seen him act like a clown and then get K.Oed. we've only seen him act that way but then win. thats why when he got K.Oed everyone assumed he threw the fight/fought an idiot

and i dunno how i insulted him o.O, i apologize if he felt that i did. all i said was "you ppl"

Oh so I take it you are some sort of MMA guru then...... Sorry oh omnipotent one.

Chill out.

Saw different angles of the finish and the left hand that sent Silva to the ground definitely caught him (always the ones you don't see).

My comments in no way meant to take anything away from Weidman's win. What I find strange is how quickly Dean jumped in. It is as if they did not want the legend to "get bruised". Silva has looked disinterested before in fights, but tonight his stupidity cost him. Did not catch his post-fight interview, so not sure about what people have been posting regarding his comments of not wanting to be a champ anymore....

Strange ending none the less.

I'm not saying his usual taunting his stupid. He's done it a lot in the past and it worked. He's good at getting inside your head.

Tonight though, the way he faked being hurt with his knees half bent and weak, his eyes half closed and not focused.

C'mon man. That's just stupid.

And he paid for it.

Silva was leaning back with his knee bent, that's like the best stand to get knocked out by a 5 years old.

As great as Silva has been all these years I never believed he ever had a good chin. He never needed one because nobody could ever get in range to do serious, sustained damage. He exposed himself far too carelessly on this night.

You never want to injure your opponent seriously..

About the fight, those taunting remembered me Roy Jones, overconfident that he cant be touched like it has been the case for about his whole carreer until he faces Tarver and starts to decline.. Both Jones and Silva were extremmely athletic and had exceptional reflexes, same with Sergeio Martinez, those guys are exceptional talents that arent effraid to fight hands low
