Silva Vs. Weidman

July 9, 2013 in Sports


The reign of Anderson Silva, arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, came to a crashing end at the hands of undefeated new comer Chris Weidman. Now everyone loves the underdog from a small town, who in all accounts seems very humble and deserving of being middleweight champion. For some reason theirs a bad taste left in my mouth and I think its the same for fans of Silva, was it the abundance of showboating that did the former champion in, did he not take the striking punch of Weidman seriously? I won’t even entertain the rumors spreading that Anderson Silva may have thrown the fight, if true forever tarnishing his and UFC reputation. Let’s give Chris his do; he came, conquered his opportunity, and hopefully taught all fighters and especially  future fighters that you must always respect your opponent as well as your craft.
