Drop hands and taunt in a championship match and when Chris Weidman does what he did at UFC 162, fans smile. Unless you are Anderson Silva. Not happy with the Mike Tyson Punchout treatment, the former champ spoke with Brazilian late-night talk show Agora Ă© Tarde and revealed, he was mad bro:
âGetting knocked out is the worst,â Silva said âThere are always going to be questions -- people want to know what happened, but [when youâre knocked out] you don't remember anything. You black out and that's it.â
âSeveral factors led to the knockout. The tension in the air before the fight, you just want to burst ... it was a series of mistakes... In my career, Iâve always went back to my corner [for advice]... Against Weidman, I went back to argue, and I should have gone back to my corner and calmed down. I didn't do any of that; I lost control.â
So, why'd he taunt?
âBecause standing up is much cooler than fighting on the floor," Silva said.
But not, alas, lying on the floor...
