Welcome back to another edition of the Outsiders Edge, the place to chat Longhorns and life in general. Lets get down to business. UFC 162: I fell for Anderson Silva’s ignorance, and the more I consider what he cost the sport, the bigger the stain on his legacy grows.

Renzo Gracie finally talks about Silva/Weidman: “The Boy (Weidman) was fading.”

  I’m still reeling from what we saw on Saturday night. Anderson Silva, knocked out by Chris Weidman? Typing those words still makes me a little upset to my stomach. I get it though, we are all human, Ali and Tyson went out on losses, and on and on. Look at Fedor. But that doesn’t make what we saw any easier to stomach. Simply put: Anderson clowned far too much and he got...
