Who looks nervous? Anyone? Both? Neither? Why does Anderson have so much hespect for Weidman? Maybe it’s because he hespects all fighters, that’s why Anderson let Weidman even touch the belt.
This was the first time the two middleweights faced off, and Silva looked like his usual self, while Weidman looked… Calm, but still in the biggest athletic event in his life. It has to be getting him nervous. It has to. This kicks off the UFC 162 even more so than the open workouts. The fighters are here, they have touched chins, they are not afraid, and barring a weird weigh-in mishap, the fight is happening. In a way, I can’t believe it.
48 hours and counting.
