Anderson Silva suffered a gruesome injury in his rematch with Chris Weidman at UFC 168, but he doesn’t consider his last fight a loss.
The former UFC middleweight champion broke his left leg when kicking Chris Weidman on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, Nev., but is confident he will be able to fight again one day. And when he does, he won’t enter the Octagon feeling he’s coming off back-to-back losses to Weidman.
"I believe that, if you pay attention to these technical details, you will see that (checking the kick) was instinct, not something that he trained to do," Silva said during an interview to Globo.
"No, I don’t think (Weidman should consider it a win). It was an accident. And I’m pretty sure I would have won the fight."
During the interview, Silva rewatched the fight and said he made some technical mistakes before throwing the leg kick.
"I can see some technical mistakes I did in the fight," he said. "To land the perfect kick, I needed to distract him by punching him in the face so he wouldn’t pay attention to the kick. He was protecting the upper part of his body, and the raised leg instinctively. The kick was so strong he lost balance."
Silva wants to fight again, and he’s not worried if his next fight will be against Weidman.http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/1/12/5302580/anderson-silva-doesnt-think-he-lost-to-chris-weidman
