Chris Weidman coach: Anderson Silva diminishing UFC legacy with excuses

fobarfobar Posts: 27,337Free
“I think these guys just aren’t in touch with reality, and they have to learn how to lose properly and grow from your losses, and move on – instead of making excuses,” Longo said. “Earn your way back up, correct your mistakes. That’s what really being a champion is. One win or loss doesn’t make a champion, but certainly making excuses isn’t being a champion, either.”

    Has anyone else within the sport come out and said this, I don't think I've seen anyone else. maybe if more did Anderson might get the message and shut the **** up

    Nobody wants to be the first guy to call him out. They likely are afraid of the backlash from all the Silva lovers and fear it could tarnish their own reputation. Longo don't give a ****. He's a honey badger

    i don't care what either camp says, there is still the lack of finality between them 2.

    I would love to see Weidman smash him for a third time but to give Silva another immediate rematch would be retarded. The guy needs a minimum of 1 victory over a top five guy to even consider a rematch with Weidman. Anything less would be a slap in the face to not only Weidman, but also to the next #1 contender. I personally would like to see 2 victories over top competition upon his return unless Weidman loses in the meantime. (which he won't)

    Absolutely agreed. Anderson should be ashamed of himself.

    I agree, don't think i said anything that disputes that.

  • Oh a loud mouthed new yorker running his mouth, imagine that. Why would anyone care what a coach says, he's not even a fighter.

  • FuriousmatFuriousmat Posts: 4,044Free
    all I see here is a coach who knows his fighter is not getting as much credit for his win as he would've if he had won differently and who's worried that the former champ putting forward the "this wasn't a legit win" point of view will give this already present opinion more support or acknowledgement...

    I don't agree with Silva on this but saying that a fighter refusing to accept a loss is going tarnish his legacy is kinda retarded. The world of fight sports is full of ego maniacs who can't accept to be defeated and Silva is just one in a million in that department.

    This is just like boxing, where some nobody who works for the fighter acts like he kicked Anderson's ****. I don't give a **** about Weidman's coach. (Also, Anderson is correct. Out of millions of fights, that's happened twice.)

    Twice in the UFC. It's not that rare in Muay Thai.

    First of all this has nothing to do with boxing, and you always try to make connections, or point out similarities between the two sports when there are very few. Its quite stupid actually and you should just stick to watching boxing imo. (trying not to be to offensive here) but your mma knowledge is limited.

    Your statement that Anderson is correct just further proves that. Weidmans coach played a big part in where Weidman is today so regardless whether or not you care what he says, it doesn't take away from the fact that he played a part in the downfall Silva and he has a right to voice his opinion on the matter.

    When you say MILLIONS of fights it happened TWICE?! You gone full retard bro... I'm assuming you are talking about Corey Hill and Silva right? So you are saying there have been millions of UFC fights? There have been more leg breaks of that kind in mma.... I have seen four personally. If you include all combat sports its even more than that. And there still would never be fights in the millions dude.

    Can't fix stupid

    It was just an exaggeration to get my point across. In other words, it was a lucky occurrence that rarely happens. As far as using the "B" word on the MMA forum, I'm sorry it upset you so much. To me, it was just another guy in the background acting like he won the fight.

    He really is diminishing his legacy with all this stuff.

    I mean he's only lost twice in the UFC and both times he has been a bit of a baby about it. In a sport where you're only as good as your last fight, this makes me like him a lot less.

    You can bet your **** that the next Silva fight will be Roy Jones Jr. but still in the octagon. No leg kicks, no leg locks. Perfect opponent to get rid of any ring rust. After that, he still shouldn't be granted an immediate title shot. A washed up Couture smashed James Toney. That's not impressive.
    Sig bet record: Omo-2
