  • Everytime one of Ray Longo fighters win the title,people say it's a fluke.Silva thought he could get away with these antics but got caught.It was a stupid game plan and Weidman took full advantage of it.I understand that it could have been different if Silva had taken the fight more seriously but that's his problem to keep his ego in check when he enters the Octogon.
  • Well, let´s cut to the chase, The Spider Silva didnt take seriously this guy weidman, there´s no doubt about, his game plan was quite stupid iF you ask me but Im 100% that Anderson is going to give this guy such a beat on the remath, I meant, Weidman can be a great fighter but Anderson didnt fight him at all......Seven long years passed before Anderson lose his title but this is only transitory, He´ll get it back, as Cian did it againts Junior Do Santos, Im not saying Weidman and Dos Santos are bad fighters, Im juts saying, in Weidman's case that he really needs to face the best of the division before considering himself the new Champion.
