    Father time is undefeated, Anderson looked bad in these
    last 2 fights, his age caught up with him but I will give
    Weidman some credit for having heart, and not backing
    down from him ,but I don’t like the fact he get so much
    pleasure from destroying this man’s career its gross
    and tacky

    • toom

      are you being sarcastic everything you wrote is absurd

      • uncle

        your delusional did hear Weidman
        gloating? Patrick Cote broke his leg almost the same way, when he was fighting Silva I didn’t see Silva take any credit, he was disappointed he won like that

        • toom

          First of all wrong that was a knee injury Silva didn’t cause and checking one of Silva s fast leg kicks is nothin but skill and he didn’t gloat but even if he Sid he did just dethrone the world’s best fighter

          • toom

            Also when did Silva look bad we never got to see how he looked because weidman was to busy destroying him don’t get me wrong I’m a huge Silva fan but you sir are the one that’s delusional ………u just got lit up

          • uncle

            Your missing the point Knee leg it
            was a injury that stopped the fight right ,Silva was not satisfied with
            that win period, Weidman is very skillful just don’t like the gloating about the leg injury, he has Anderson’s number and that’s a fact

          • toom

            I think your missing the point it wasn’t luck checking a leg kick isn’t a freak accident

          • uncle

            luck was never mentioned, I said
            he has Anderson’s number I think
            that’s pretty clear …So conversation over

          • toom

            Your comparing a freak accident to something done by skill and conversation over thanks dad

      Silva was intentionally kicking directly at weidmans knee trying to cripple weidman,especially in first fight.silvas corner even screaming, “kick his knees “. Silva was following their directions. Silva is a dirty fighter for trying to cripple weidman and silva got what he intended to do to weidman.

    Good for Silva, I hope he recovers and become an ambassador for UFC in Brazil like Chuck Liddell in the US
