BEST OF MAXIM
Chris Weidman knocked out a very talkative Anderson Silva at UFC 162, and no one will say that Silva didn’t deserve it. Silva, for some reason, took to jawing at his opponent for no reason after the first round. And as Karma would have it, the below happened. We collected some of the best reactions from Twitter following the surprise knock out.
WHERE IS YOUR BRAZILIAN GOD NOW...
The fix is in, Anderson Silva (pictured) clearly threw the fight – so cry the conspiracy theorists.
Or, Silva clowned the wrong guy and now has egg all over his face. Although Chris Weidman was more than a 2-1 underdog against “The Spider,” many of his fellow fighters believed he would serve up the upset special at UFC 162.
Silva taunted and dared Weidman to smack him in...
Anderson Silva was stunningly knocked out by challenger Chris Weidman during their middleight championship fight at UFC 162 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Silva is a big showman who often dances in the octagon and flaunts his superior fighting skills. The display backfired on him as Weidman caught him with multiple punches while his [...]
It’s the morning after UFC 162 and I still don’t know what to make of Anderson Silva’s loss to Chris Weidman. We’ve seen Anderson Silva clown around in the ring, taunting his opponent throughout contests. We’ve seen him take more post-fight criticism than punishment in fights where he seemed disinterested in finishing as he danced to somewhat easy decisions. On the one...
I’m still having a very difficult time formulating what happened last night. Absolute props to Chris Weidman — he did it — but Anderson also beat himself by playing the game far, far too much, and it cost him his title, and ever so slightly, his legacy. Now Weidman is the champ, Anderson said he doesn’t want to fight for the belt anymore, and there is a rematch clause...
Striking: Silva is arguably the greatest of all- time, and his incredible striking is what fuels his success. 20 of his 33 wins have come by KO, more than half of them in the first round. “The Spider” utilizes head movement, is fluid with his footwork, and works from all angles. He uses the jab to set things up, usually series of devastating knees and kicks. He’s incredibly...
Chris Weidman stunned Anderson Silva in the second round of their UFC middleweight title fight on Saturday night, ending the legendary champion's long reign on top of the division.
Weidman — the Long Island kid with just nine previous pro fights — landed a short left hook that sent Silva to the canvas, and then pounced on the ultimate fighting star, landing a few more...
Hey, Anderson Silva fanboys. I understand you’re distraught that your hero was put to sleep by Chris Weidman at UFC 162, but we’ve got some news that may help you turn that frown upside down.
TheNewYorkDailyNews has obtained the nude picture Ben Watts of ESPN The Magazine took of UFC bantamweight Miesha Tate for the mag’s annual “The Body Issue.”
Feel better? Tate is rather...
Go toe-to-toe with your opponent. Don’ blink. Just stare into the depths of his soul to intimidate him. Don’t flinch. Manly man. Machismo….
Then, kiss him ever so gently on his lips…. Huh? Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman messed up in trying to pull off the super manly weigh-in for UFC 162.

No, not that superfight against reigning UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones. Of course that, and a potential blockbuster bout with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, is off the table now that Anderson Silva (pictured) lost his middleweight crown to Chris Weidman on Saturday at UFC 162.
However, UFC president Dana White hopes a Silva-Weidman sequel will do far better...
What we all thought was damn near impossible has finally happened. After a dominant opening round, longtime middleweight champ Anderson Silva let down his guard and was knocked out in spectacular fashion by the undefeated challenger. The historic loss is Anderson’s first in the UFC and ends a long era of dominance over the middleweight division that saw him defend his title 10...
