But what IF the leg didn't brake?

It was round 2, Weidman had done more work and looked more tired, he was also bleeding as he had a cut on his face and was bruised because Silva was able to do a lot of damage from the bottom. Anderson was looking more comfortable with his standup, was throwing more kicks and Weidman was starting to look reluctant to attempt takedowns.

Weidman won round 1, but it was a 5 round fight and the outcome is a fluke. That's how I see it.

    Weidman would of continued to control the fight and probably finished him.

    Weidman knocked him down in the first and almost finished, and the leg accident happend early in the second... Silva's best attacks in the first fight were the leg kicks, but Weidman was prepared for leg kicks this time. He dominated Silva and won the fight with skill. However, I have to say that Silva's unorthodox techniques can end a fight in a blink of an eye, so who knows!!

    After seeing how easily Weidman took down & controlled Silva in Round 1, it's a safe assumption that he would've continued to do that.

    Of course, you never know with Silva.. one punch is all it takes, but it's pretty pointless to speculate.

    The bottom line is Weidman beat him in every aspect & the broken leg, fluke or not, probably wouldn't have effected the overall outcome.

    I think Silva would of probably been TKO'd eventually. It looked like Chris may have turned his lights out when they clinched but Silva recovered very quickly.

    Silva was getting dominated every second of that fight. The only conclusion I could possibly suggest is Weidman would have continued to dominate, theres nothing in that fight that would have suggest otherwise. This coming from someone who picked Silva to win both times.

  • LOL first fight was more dominant.
    Andy was actually hurting Chris from the bottom in the 2nd fight.
    Who knows what would've happened, but Andy should've used different kicks instead of the same ones.

    Weidman still looked great and NO Silva was not doing a LOT of damage,he was pitty patting from the bottom.Weidman got cut from ONE phantom hit,not from a LOT of damage.
    Chris imo looked much better than the first fight and Silva was returning the kicks because he did not like Weidman kicking him,so he tried to prove a point and kick harder back but it backfired.
    Chris was dominating in a better fashion that i imagined,Silva would have been in for a long night of bruising and damage.Difference being that Chris was thumping Silva with strikes,they were not glancing types that scrape and cut you they were crushing strikes.

    Want to know the difference,watch the slow motion when Chris almost KO'd Silva,he crushed his face in.

    It's impossible to tell how the rest of the fight would have unfolded otherwise. People are quick to say Weidman would've dominated Silva every round, but that's a huge assumption. One round isn't enough to judge, and Anderson actually got stronger at the end of round one instead of giving up and fading. He could've swollen both of Weidman's eyes shut from the bottom with 3 1/2 more rounds. He could've opened up the cut a lot more, too. Either one of those highly plausible things could've dramatically altered the fight.

    Better than the glass jaw and glass shins that have been exposed on Silva his last two fights. Zack has been calling Hendricks 1, 2 and 5 since day 1

    Weidman would have continued to dominate the way he did in the first round, and first fight.

    That's opinion I can see why people think it but fighters come back after a bad round to win all the time none of us really know how it was gonna play out.

    This is a terrible hypothetical!

    What if's are a waste of time, and Weidman was dominating the fight. It would be more fair to assume Weidman would have continued to dominate and that it would take a fluke for Silva to win.

    Silva really looked like he wasn't into it. I really think he didn't want this fight.
