Days later & i'm still disappointed & frustrated at Anderson. He can easily defeat Weidman but something must be wrong with Silva. I could tell in his eyes & the way he talked after the weigh-ins that something was up. I just don't see why he'd sign for 10 more fights if he's tired of being on top. It's like he was trying so hard to clown & toy with not only Chris, but all those who were picking the upset.

I don't think Weidman will hold onto the belt very long.

Nor do I. Reports are that Dana White wants to have the rematch in Dec.

But as much as Dana wants that rematch and it's obvious he strongly does, he can't ultimately force Silva to do it again if he doesn't want to (which he's indicated he doesn't) right?

That's what he's saying right now. He's just being the stubborn, silly Anderson everyone hates. The rematch was talked about prior to the fight so maybe he's rebelling against that too. There's no other logical fight for him. He shouldn't take no vacation, not at his age.

Looky here!! Looky here!!!

 

According to sources very close to the former UFC middleweight champion, Silva changed his tune about not fighting Weidman again just hours after he was knocked out by Weidman at UFC 162 on Saturday night in Las Vegas. The sources said they have never seen Silva so motivated to fight someone, and that a little over 24 hours after the loss Silva was jokingly wishing the rematch could happen this week. That's how badly he wants to avenge his loss to Weidman.

Hmm... that's interesting. I'm sure there must be too big of a payday there for him to turn down as well.

I doubt money's the motivating factor for the rematch.

^ Not if Dana had to go a little extra further behind the scenes to convince him to do what he wanted more than Silva even did. It's certainly not impossible. Those kinds of arrangements & things can be sometimes kept relatively secret and then of course you have the fighter or fighters go out and say something to convince the public they're totally in it genuinely & there were no extra motivating factors. PR & PC can hide the real details sometimes. Who knows for sure though in this case..

Anderson got $600,000 for Saturdays bout. The guys already rich & has several high paying endorsements, namely Nike. 

He changed his mind the same night after losing. I doubt there was any pay scale worked out from that & the time he left the ring.

Did you read the link I posted?

Love Weidman's game but seriously.. A motivated Anderson Silva will murder him. Anderson was stopping his TD's. Weidman is so [expletive]ed. It's going to be like the Cera-GSP fight.

Fight being investigated for being fixed....

Aside from Silva's comments before the fight on how losing to Weisman would be the perfect ending to his career as a champion

There has also been a reported 1 million dollar payout on Wiesman...


Under investigation

Read an article earlier with Minutaro saying the belt was bought from Anderson by the UFC, Nike, & some other people. 

At 1st I was shouting FIX. Now I just hope Anderson was caught  & lost due to his antics. 

 

Good, so you're watching it now. :laughing:

 

No, sorry, not yet. But I do know what it's about.
