UFC 162 Conspiracy Theories Are A Joke

by

I love a good conspiracy theory and as a pro wrestling fan, I really love a good work but the idea that anyone would call Chris Weidman’s UFC 162 win over Anderson Silva a fix or a work is about the most preposterous thing I’ve ever heard.

It wasn’t soon after Weidman stunned the MMA world with his second round knockout of the greatest fighter of all-time that skeptics started raising their voices or in this case running to the keyboard. MMA and sports forums immediately saw a barrage of fans telling the world that the win was nothing more than a big fix. Every post was dumber than the next.

What may have even been dumber than these posts was seeing major sports media outlets pick up the story and give it legs. The worst of the bunch may have been Sports Illustrated, a site which has been very generous in ..click here to read more , ,

Anderson Silva Wants Chris Weidman UFC Rematch This Year

by

Anderson Silva has never been known for his consistency. Just a few days after telling the UFC world that he wasn’t interested in fighting Chris Weidman not only does he want to Weidman, he wants to fight him…this year!

I think that there have been more rumors about this match in a few days than there have been about GSP vs. Silva in the last three years. First Silva didn’t want the fight, than reports indicated that the UFC was attempting to book the fight on Super Bowl weekend, than Dana White said UFC 168, and now one report is saying that Silva wanted to fight Weidman again the next day.

MMAFighting.com and UFC Tonight reporter Ariel Helwani reports that Silva wants the rematch this year. ..click here to read more ,

Jon Jones thinks Anderson Silva “Abused His Gift By Disrespecting” Weidman

by

It will be awhile before UFC media can move on from the UFC 162 and the way Anderson Silva lost. That is why it wasn’t a surprise to hear the topic asked to Jon Jones often during Tuesday’s UFC 165 press conference and Bones offered an interesting take on the downfall of the Spider.

It is always interesting hearing other fighters talk about the Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman upset. While all are congratulating Weidman, many are disappointed in Silva and his antics during the fight. Like him or not Jon Jones has always tried to come off as a respectful professional so it was interesting to hear his thoughts on seeing a potential opponent KO’d under fascinating circumstances.

Jones was asked about the finish of the fight and the UFC light heavyweight champion would like to remind everyone that he has no intentions of ever purposely letting his hands down.

Anderson Silva Vs. Chris Weidman Rematch Targeted For UFC 168

by

As the MMA world continues to talk about Chris Weidman KO’ing Anderson Silva at UFC 162 the UFC boss is looking ahead to a rematch. Dana White is not only guaranteeing a rematch but is reportedly targeting it for what could be the biggest UFC card of 2014.

Anderson Silva may be saying no but the UFC is saying yes. According to reports, the UFC is not only working hard to sign the rematch between Silva and Weidman, but they are targeting it for February 1, 2014 a day before Super Bowl XLVIII in the same city.

A UFC event on Super Bowl weekend has become an annual show but this year is much different. Rather than taking advantage of the betting traffic in Las Vegas the UFC is coming to the Super Bowl. The UFC will be holding its event just ..click here to read more , ,

UFC 162 Silva Vs. Weidman Results and Wrap Up

by

Well that was shocking… After a stunning end that still has most members of the MMA world including fans, fighters and media personalities all equally shocked, UFC 162 is now in the books and one of the greatest title reigns in UFC history is over. Chris Weidman shocked the world Saturday night in Las Vegas as he did the unthinkable and knocked Anderson Silva out cold for the first time in “The Spider’s” career. The rest of the main card provided a ton of action and a lot of exciting bouts and the main event just capped a great night of fights, unfortunately for the UFC, many people are tossing around conspiracy theories and making excuses for the main event instead of celebrating a great night of fights. With all of that said, it’s time to look forward at what’s next for all of the main card fighters.

Chris Weidman Proved Nothing With Anderson Silva KO

by

The combat sports world continues to buzz just hours after Chris Weidman dethroned Anderson Silva to become UFC middleweight champion at UFC 162. Fans and media have declared Weidman the better man but let’s not kid ourselves, Weidman proved nothing with the knockout.

Don’t misunderstand me. I think what Weidman pulled off was remarkable. He defeated the greatest fighter in MMA history with a knockout. It doesn’t get much better than that in terms of excitement. But the idea that Chris Weidman made a statement and is now the greatest fighter in the middleweight division is just flat out fiction.

Let’s break down that first round of the fight. Weidman was favored by some for his wrestling. Those same experts also said that Weidman was toast if he couldn’t do anything with Silva on the ground. Weidman scored a takedown immediately on ..click here to read more , ,

UFC 162 Silva Vs. Weidman Results: Weidman KO’s Silva

by

Chris Weidman has shocked the world! Anderson Silva and his arrogance finally caught up to him at UFC 162. Silva didn’t respect Weidman’s power and he paid for it with his UFC middleweight title at UFC 162.

I’ll admit it. I didn’t buy the hype. The UFC did its best hype job on Weidman coming into the fight putting out press releases with fighters picking Weidman in the upset. I just didn’t see it. Neither did Anderson Silva and a stunned live Vegas crowd.

Analysts picked Weidman because of his wrestling and while those same prognosticators were going with Weidman, most said if it went to a striking contest that Silva would win. I don’t think anyone predicted that Silva would clown around and show such little respect for Weidman’s punching, disrespect that has finally caught up to him.

Weidman opened up the fight with a takedown and looked like he was following ..click here to read more , ,

Chael Sonnen Interviews Anderson Silva On UFC Tonight

by

My how things have changed in one year. One year ago Chael Sonnen wanted to beat up Anderson Silva, come over his house, and ask him to make a steak dinner. Today the two are sharing laughs on UFC Tonight.

Chael Sonnen has done a terrific job of transitioning to a host on UFC Tonight. It is fun to see Chael interview his peers. It could get a little uncomfortable on the other hand when Chael is tasked with interviewing one of the many fighters he has talked trash on and there is nobody in the world he has talked more trash on than Anderson Silva.

Chael had Silva on the show to promote his UFC 162 fight against Chris Weidman. Given the animosity between the two over the last few years I was surprised how comfortable they were with the segment. If you had no idea about their past you’d ..click here to read more ,

GSP Not Interested In Anderson Silva UFC Super Fight

by

Reality may be starting to set in within the UFC regarding the often hyped and never delivered Anderson Silva vs. GSP Super Fight. Dana White is no longer promising the fight and he is putting all of the blame on Georges St-Pierre.

There has been an interesting dynamic about this GSP vs. Silva super fight since the start. From day one UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has never seemed interested in the fight. Ironic since Dana White has dangled that fight in front of UFC fans since 2010. Whether he is moving on or attempting to rally public pressure, he is now not very optimistic that the fight is happening and is very happy to throw GSP under the bus for it.

White held his media “scrum” as he often does and told fans and reporters at UFC 162 that GSP does not want this fight.

Anderson Silva Thinks Jon Jones Would Win UFC Super Fight

by

Anderson Silva has been publicly negotiating with the UFC for a fight with Jon Jones for months. Silva’s latest twist is telling fans that he doesn’t think he can beat Bones, a statement that many are seeing as nothing more than public negotiating.

The Silva vs. Jones super fight appears no closer today to being signed than ever. UFC president recently told the media that the plan was to book the fight in November at the UFC 20th Anniversary event in Madison Square Garden if MMA was legalized in New York. How the UFC could let that fight fall through simply due to location is a whole other story.

Silva is days away from his 11th UFC middleweight title defense but guess what? Nobody seems to care about his fight with Chris Weidman. Fans, media, and even Dana White want to talk about Silva vs. GSP or Jones in a mega fight. ..click here to read more

UFC Prez Insists Super Fight Next For Anderson Silva With Win

by

Here we go again. The UFC president is at it again when it comes to super fights. Dana White dangled the UFC super fight once again at a recent press conference and insists if the results all work out that Anderson Silva will be fighting Jon Jones or GSP next.

Look I want to believe that the super fight is coming. Unfortunately the fact that the UFC prez has been talking an Anderson Silva mega fight for the last three years and hasn’t delivered tells me that I need to see it to believe it. According to White, I’ll be seeing it in 2013.

“If Georges St. Pierre beats Carlos Condit tomorrow, Anderson Silva will be there, sitting cageside, and those two will fight. Probably in May, at either [Cowboys Stadium], Toronto, or a soccer stadium down in Brazil.” – 2012

“If (Silva) wins that fight (against Vitor Belfort at UFC ..click here to read more , , ,
