Anderson Silva seemed completely aloof and uninterested in a rematch if he lost to Chris Weidman before he even fought Chris Weidman.

I love a good conspiracy theory and as a pro wrestling fan, I really love a good work but the idea that anyone would call Chris Weidman’s UFC 162 win over Anderson Silva a fix or a work is about the most preposterous thing I’ve ever heard.

Over the past three years we've seen a handful of the all-time greats like Silva get humbled. Fedor, Penn, and Fujii are the top names that come to mind. Over the past three years more people...
