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.”
