On a serious note, I feel bad for Anderson.

That has to be the most humiliating way to lose a championship belt. I know a lot of people - myself included - have been very critical of Andy, but maybe we're being just a little too harsh.

He was respectful in his post fight interview, he showed up to the press conference when he didn't have to just to answer questions, he gave Weidman all of the credit for winning the fight and never attempted to attribute it to making a mistake. I sincerely believe Andy was just trying to get into Weidman's head and keep the fight standing.

Anyway, he's obviously still the GOAT, and I hope he retires that way.

    I don't feel bad at all. It is a fight, it is expected. Silva always tries a get into his opponents head and make them feel like they are inferior, it works for him. But he needs to do the rematch which he will lose again.....then move up into LHW and make his run there......that is when I will consider him one of the greatest fighters of our time, assuming he wins impressively in LHW.

    I don't think he should do the rematch and risk losing again. I think he should just move on.

    Well, I don't think there's any rule against feeling sorry for someone even if they brought something on themselves. Obviously he used the wrong game plan and made a mistake, so in that sense I guess he brought it on himself, but it's not like he really did anything ethically wrong...

    I don't feel bad for Anderson. He brought it on himself. I still think he can beat Weidman.

    Anderson's hand actually did tap the mat when he came down, problem was herb couldn't get there in time and chris was too fast with his follow up punches so he put him out cold.

    Yeah, I think I saw that too now that I think about it. If you watch closely, you can see him tapping Herb's ankle when the fight was stopped, probably thinking that Weidman was still on top of him.

    So many people overreact on the situation, Anderson got clipped... after 7 years somebody was able to clip him, 7 years! No need to retire and it would be the stupiest thing to do business wise, Weidman vs Silva will be the biggest PPV ever, everybody who can't understand, that fighters are fighting for money, went full retard... Money Talks!!!

    He showed up at the press conference to safe his own *** and convince people he didn't throw the fight. And his interview answers never make much sense anyway. He wanted to make sure the controversy doesn't blow up, so he had showed up for that with all the "I love America, I improved my life, I am tired, Chris is the champion, stop negging me about the rematch, I don't care", which kinda did the job.

    Yeah riiiight, Weidman outclassed him on the feet, smh! He clipped him with a strange looking 1, 2, 2, 1 combi after Silva tried to... first, front kick his face out of his face and put a clinic on the legs of Weidman, lmao.... Poop eater! =))

    I don't. He wanted to play the game and it didn't work out for him this time. Hespect for trying though.

    It was a good combination from Chris- You can't deny him that.

    Sure it was embarrasing for him but at the end of the day he got caught on his feet- at least that added the "what if he wasn't clowning " argument to the discussion.

    had Chris dragged it back to the ground and pummeled him stupid (which would of caused far more butthurt). What would everyone be saying now?

    I don't think this stains any of the dudes achievements at all.

    He did drag him down and fed him knuckle sandwhiches, then took a risk attempting a leg lock. He could have just stayed on him and continue to pummel him. The butthurt fans would have still said...."Silva just wasn't himself." or "Silva was too tired and didn't bother to stand back up so he gave the win to Weidman." You could write a book on the excuses.

    There is truth in this which is sad.

    That's why its best to view any sport/contest objectively, you get so much more out of it as a fan that way,rather than being blinded by love of a particular fighter/team etc.
    It's good to support and passionate about your favourites but if they lose fair and square don't lose your ****.

    I give Credit to Silva for getting back to the feet and stuffing a couple TD's.

    But not credit for dropping his hands and overly-taunting.
