Anderson Silva Admits To Losing Control And Arguing With Corner Prior To Weidman Loss

“Getting knocked out is the worst. There are always going to be questions — people want to know what happened, but [when you’re knocked out] you don’t remember anything. You black out and that’s it. It [the awkward movement] was a technical error to keep my legs parallel; I should have taken a step back instead. Several factors led to the knockout. The tension in the air before the fight, you just want to burst … it was a series of mistakes. In my career, I’ve always went back to my corner [for advice]. Against Weidman, I went back to argue, and I should have gone back to my corner and calmed down. I didn’t do any of that; I lost control.”

    U lost control?…. Lol ur gonna freak out when Weidman subs and taps u out in the rematch!

  2. And......the denial begins.. says:

    Actually, it began the second Weidman knocked Silva out. Denial by Silva, his coaches, and his fans. Been hearing all the reasons why Silva lost–and not one of ’em I heard credited Weidman of being capable of beating Silva. “If he wasn’t clowning, Silva would’ve won,” “Weidman was already slowing down,” blah, blah, blah.
    Give credit where credit is due. Weidman won because he fought better than Silva. Silva usually clowns, but is in control of the fight when he does. Not this time. Weidman one the first round easily. Of course Silva got some strikes in, but Weidman controlled Silva on the ground and did well standing. Will it change in the rematch? I don’t think so, but I would never put my money against the greatest of all time, which Silva still is. But the decline has begun whether we like it or not.

      Couldn’t agree with you more!

    • Lawman says:

      I’m not to sure what fight you were watching. Weidman did well standing? If you consider that to be good stand up then…smh. Now then lets move on to ‘Silva usually clowns.’ Everyone always says that Silva does this every single fight. So I re-watched the Leben fight, both Franklin fights, Thales Leites, Patrick Cote, Dan Henderson, Nate Marquadt, Vitor Belfort, I’m pretty sure you get the point. The only time Silva has showboated like that was Demian Maia and I guess you could make a case for Stephan Bonnar. There is no denial here. Silva lost. Weidman beat him. That is fact. But I’m just tired of hearing people say, ‘Silva just got caught at doing what he does best.’ Cause that my friend, is horse manure.

      • Cmon Now! says:

        You obviously cannot deny that Weidman did EXTREMELY well standing. If you deny that, then do not read on. Did you re-watch Silva’s fights with Bonnar, Okami, Maia, Griffin, and LEITES? Yes, HE EVEN CLOWNED DURING THE LEITES FIGHT. The Maia fight was NOT the only time. He didn’t clown in either of the Sonnen fights because Sonnen was on his ass non-stop. And I believe he respects Belfort so much that he would never clown against him. The level of clowing reached a high point against Weidman because, in my opinion, he was NOT in control of the Weidman fight at all! What was Silva to do at the point he realized this? Get serious and lose? That’s worse than clowing and losing.
        It is what it is. If Silva loses the rematch, what will everyone say then? You may not be in denial, but many others are. Good for you.

          Lawman if you really took notice of those fights he clowns your list of opponents because he didn’t respect their striking all good mixed martial artists but none have the most explosive or precise striking games. He took Belfort more seriously not only because he respects him as a person but because he respects he finishing ability on the feet. I could go on all day him clowning and not clowning his previous opponents but lets move on. Was your point about him clowning Weidman to hide that he was lost in that fight a joke or did you not watch the fight. There were points in the fight where Silva had circled him so quick Weidman almost had his back turned and most of the shots Weidman hit him with up until he got put to sleep Silva let him take. He was better standing when he fought Munoz atleast he had actually thought about what he threw. don’t get me wrong Weidman stuck in there done his job and put one on his chin but honest who on this site actually has him in their top 10 P4P compared to Silva.

          Correction my comment was directed at Cmon now not lawman sorry

      • Jay says:

        Yup I couldn’t agree more than Lawman. You saying that Weidman did well standing is like saying pigs can fly. Open your eyes man. I have seen better strikers in my mma gym.

      • Who won Round 1 of the Silva/Weidman fight? says:

        and why?
        Please answer this very direct question. If unable, please state that you’re unable to answer it.

        • No takers on this question? says:

          Cmon now! All you intelligent MMA fans should be able to answer this question! PJ? Badge holder? Leno? What? If you can’t handle the Heat, stay out of Miami!

        • Patrick Jenkins says:

          Yeah the Judges probably seen it weidman’s way because of the takedown and Anderson allowing Weidman to hit him. but any “FIGHT” fan knows Silva had neutralized Weidman’s biggest weapon which was the ground game by stopping all further takedown attempts and going about a point of clowning Weidman to show how heavily outclassed he was on the feet. He took the cockiness too far in the 2nd round and got caught. In fact this fight is proof that it doesn’t matter how bad a fight I going if stick in their you can finish when the time is right for this I applaud Chris Weidman. But for you my nameless friend I smh at your ignorance.

  3. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    LMAO…anybody who knows Silva’s fights already knows that he NEVER listen’s to his corner. This dude as nothing but sycophants around him..funny shit here…I see they still have a few more stages of grief to go through. Lol.

  4. maddkillah says:

    the biggest factor that led to the knockout was silva listening to usher and not to his corner…did you see who he walked out with after the fight? damn that’s gay…

    • ballsackface says:

      Ushser and segal. good combo

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      Silva is the P4P GOAT. But I was wondering about that too.
      Usher giving advice on how to come back from a lost UFC titlefight? wtf does he know about it? Anderson should put a stop to the ‘celebrities’ hitchhiking along with his success.

  5. 757 says:

    Excuses escuses…..AS got his ass knocked out who cares what reasons he is giving. Big ups for Weidman. I thought AS would win but got a lesson taught. Weidman fought great and knocked out AS. All these fools who keep saying that it was because of this reason and that reason just can’t except the fact that Weidman came out and whipped him……PERIOD!! Yes sorry to say that makes him better than AS. When you knock out the champ and take his belt that’s how it goes.

  6. Dddddddd says:

    I hope this will make the fans that were in denial about Silva losing the first round realize he was. He wasn’t argumentative because he felt good about how things were going,

  7. Pee pee says:

    It’s hilarious how quick Mma fans forget. They lose n these douche bags come out of there caves saying.. He’s finished they need to retire blah blah man. Anderson is going to destroy this dude. Your going to see one of the most determined hungriest Anderson silvas this December. He’s Gona come out with that oldschool chute box kill or be killed mentality. You really think he’s Gona stand there and let Chris hit him again? You really think him putting his hands down and standing parallel had nothing to do with it? C’mon son. Look how tired Chris weidman was after that first round. You will see me friends.

  8. GRT 3000 says:

    it was a bad night for the Spider no doubt. got caught clowning and now this crap. he’ll come back & slap Weidman arnd in the rematch when he shows to actually fight.
