Anderson beat himself

waikruwaikru UFC PresidentPosts: 10,001Free
I know everybody has heard the saying that sometimes a fighter "just beats himself", but I have never seen a more clear cut example of this than Anderson's fight against Weidman. This is not to take anything away from Weidman. He beat Silva fair and square. However, I believe his win was more about Silva's tomfoolery catching up to him than about his actual performance in that fight.
On November 16th Hendricks became the real undisputed champion.

    All you're trying to do is take away from Weidman with that post.

    Silva does stupid **** like that all the time and this time it cost him.

    Imo no one ever beats themselves, they may make a mistake which gives there opponent a chance to win but they have to be good enough to capitalize on it. Going off your logic Sonnen beat himself twice against Silva.

    Don't get butthurt. In reality, Weidman didn't dominate Silva, he just knocked out a guy with his hands down. I am a fan of both guys and I left that fight thinking more about what Anderson was not doing than what Weidman was doing.

    I like Anderson, but boy I laughed so hard watching his head bounce up and down on the canvas like a basketball. That **** was hilarious.

    Fighters can definitely beat themselves. I think it could definitely be true in the first Sonnen fight, but not the second one.

    No. You don't use your brain all too well.

    Sonnen did everything best he could to win.
    Silva did everything best he could to lose.

    It wasn't like Sonnen was handing Silva his arms with only purpose for Silva to grab him in a triangle attempt so he could retract his arms at the last second making silly faces "Oh no you don't! Haha!".

    in that first fight all sonnen had to do was lay there for 45 seconds instead he gave Silva the opportunity to get that triangle and he took it. Second fight he throws a stupid spinning elbow misses falls on his butt and gets finished from there.

    In the second fight, Sonnen was getting punched in the grill and failed two takedown attempts. In other words, he was already losing.

    hmmm maybe wait to see what happens next are we going to see a usa vs brazil - wiedman vs silva tuf - followed by the rematch in brazil ?
    even more people will watch from both countries. and the rematch will be one of the biggest pay per view events in the history of ufc.....

    then i would understand why he danced in front of wiedman with his hands down.

    But Silva was winning the whole second round. It wasn't like he was losing and then Sonnen went for a spinning backfist punch resulting in his loss.

    People beat themselves all the time, not physically but mentally. Anderson was beaten because he got caught, no other reason. His style of baiting his opponent in didn't work because Weidman wasn't phased by it. He kept his composure and stayed calm while previous opponents would get angry and over throw their shots, leaving Anderson to pick them apart.

    Yeah, I am butthurt because a fighter I like beat another fighter I liked. 8-|

    I am more questioning the intelligence of someone saying that the number one contender and now new World MW champion is a can.

    "Abuse"'is a strong word.lol I don't ban people out of spite and I usually don't edit comments. But waikru is a tool and is raging hard. Silva fans have had it easy, he always wins.lol so he lost, get over it. I still have to hear about Serra. Plus, I wouldn't edit his comments if he wasn't so disrespectful to Leonie.
