Anderson: ''I want to do my job and return to my kids in one piece.'' Win, lose or draw...

_Finish_Him__Finish_Him_ Posts: 11,585Free
"Age doesn't have anything to do with it. Weidman's been wanting this fight for a while so I know he'll be very well prepared. For me, regardless of whether I win or lose, I want to do my job and return to my kids in one piece. It's about setting examples for the kids. Everything extraordinary I've wanted to do in my career, I feel that I've done. Now it's a matter of clocking in and doing my job."

Doesn't sound to confident anymore... do you think it's tactical Warfare? Or is he afraid to be taking down for 5 rounds again?

    Oh ya he cares so much about his kids,is that why he is out dancing to Justin Bieber because his kids like him?Is that why he is hanging out looking stoned singing some stupid song with some guy on an acoustic,that sounds like more important than his kids any day ,every day.Does he even have his kids in sport or does his wife do all of that?.When have we EVER seen him active with his kids?

    There's always a chance, fighters make mistakes, like going into a fight with an injured rib or throw a spinning back fist and ruin your own night...
    The question is, can Weidman capatalize on the situations with his 9 pro fights, like andy always did over the years. Forrest Griffin fight...Bonnar fight, Sonnen Fight, Anderson Silva is on Point with every attack! We're about to find out... 9 days...

    Silvas fans will refuse to hear this. A clear sign that even Silva himself has doubts about who will win. WAR WEIDMAN!!!!!

    Oh and BTW.....those buttocks are spectacular!

    I gotta say this AS AN ANDERSON FAN and proudly Brazilian ... Anderson is saying a lot of "negative" things that makes me wonder about his confidence towards this fight, honestly. Lately, he is talking too much about the whole thing of "winning or lose blah blah blah" which makes me kinda nervous.

    I know A LOT OF YOU WILL HATE ME FOR THIS but this whole thing (fight) is looking like a Weidman vs Anderson 2 on new years weekend and a bunch of $$$ into Silvas pocket PLUS the mega PPV sale. Sorry.

    Retiring as the champ (no matter if he gotta get that belt back or not) and the record of title defenses that he already has beat is good enough for Anderson right now and I really think all he gonna do from now on is chase the $$$ as you and me would do the same IF YOU WERE ON HIS SHOES.

    On the other hand, we are talking about a mind game master who might be building up Weidmans confidence towards this fight and maybe that will be Weidmans downfall ??

    You mean he doesn't want to lose or get hurt? I'm surprised he would say that

    anderson just kinda says whatever... everything he says I take with a grain of salt... he enjoys putting doubt in people and trolling them before the fight...

    I believe all this talk over the past week was from one interview. I wouldn't be worried about it.

    Remember that one time that everyone said Silva was finally gonna lose, and it HAPPENED?

    Me neither

    Last time Silva lost, he didn't have haters. Last time he lost, there were not Sonnen or Weidman fans
  • KeemKeem Posts: 6,862Free
    Silva knows he's blessed with his success, but he's just stating his awareness that he's human and there are more important things in life as well his own personal life.

    Can't fight forever

    I don't think it's lack of motivation or a lack of confidence. It's part PR, part psychological tactics and part truth.

    PR

    If Andy loses, he loses. He will do his best and that's all that matters. That's a good example and one that i respect. If you give it your all you win regardless.

    Let the psychological mind games begin

    Does Chris think...you know that Andy's not such a bad guy? Does he get a little more confident and lose a little fire in training knowing Silva is giving him full respect almost sounding like he's conceding? Does he feel like he can open up a little more on Andy during the fight? Is he putting himself in uncomfortable spots in his training and conditioning? Basically does Andy feed Chris's ego to the detriment of his training both physically, tactically and psychologically? Anderson up +1 baiting the trap then at the at the weigh-ins he'll go straight into Intimidation mode then Weidman will ask himself wow maybe he doesn't respect me. He sure seemed confident there. Then he starts questioning himself. Am i good enough? Did i do all that i could to prepare wisely? Did i push myself hard enough?

    Then ego tells him of course you are ready and you're going to go out and prove it. So Weidman is going out there with a chip on his shoulder with something to prove which is not being relaxed, in the moment and focused like he needs to be and this is exactly what a spider possum opportunist like Anderson wants. He wants to multiply all the anticipation, the building anxiety to draining him mentally and put him in a mindset i need to go out there and smash this guy which is the complete opposite strategy and mental state he needs to be in to perform at his best.

    The Truth
    Anderson knows he can lose, always has, always will. He just doesn't believe it will be to Chris but if it happens who doesn't want to come home in one piece.
