    Wow,there’s a big shock

  2. toto says:

    lol weidman by KO 4:50 ahaha so not shocking lol just kidding we all know anderson is gunna win by ko or tko if not by submission ahah

  3. Kyle says:

    Line seems low to me. I thin Weidman’s the worst matchup Silva’s EVER had in the UFC… But still he’s anderson fucking silva. If Weidman gets to about +350 to +400 I’ll make a big wager. But if Munoz couldn’t get up from under Weidman, Silva certainly can’t, and Chris on short notice was never in “real sub” trouble vs Maia … MMA math never adds up, but I just like this matchup for Chris.

  4. Sergio says:

    Buddy stay dreaming,

    Anderson will kill him, just do way he did with, Dan Henderson, Sonnen, Okami…. all whestiling all down, our tape out.
    Weidman is just one more fun fight for Anderson.. Brou he comming from Brazil, where you have to fight to survivor, is not like american when the kids has a bullying. You really think he’s afraid a playboy like weidman??? wait and see, one more down.

  5. Pee pee says:

    Anderson silva win by 2nd strikes of his wrinkled tender balls stuffed in Weidmans throat. Hell ya

  6. 123 says:

    got a feeling its going to be a sick fight, hopefully silva wins because people want silva vs jones & it probably wont happen if weidman beats him.

  7. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    First, its been pretty easy betting on Silva to win because he wins every time since being in the UFC. But I am going to give my prediction and state why. Here we go. And no, I am not trolling here. First, lest you forget, Weidman took the Maia fight on short notice. Hell he didn’t even train for that fight. Maia is no slouch and Weidman was NEVER in trouble of being submitted. So yes a short notice win over Maia is something to brag about, even if it was close. You know Maia is better on the ground then Silva. Why do you think Silva wanted none of that with Maia? You have also seemed to have forgotten that Munoz could not get Weidman off of him, and you think Silva can? Munoz is much better wrestler than Silva will ever be. So Weidman has a better ground game than Silva by far and he’s faster and stronger than Silva and you think he has no chance??? C’mon now! Silva does hit hard and is great at reading people. But, barring this and/or an illegal knee to the face to a grounded opponent, Weidman should handle Silva fairly dominantly. Silva has gotten old and he is a tad slower and less hungry now. I see Weidman taking Silva down. Silva’s time is close to being up.

      all imma say is LOL this guy

    • krafty11 says:

      keep tokin the good stuff.

    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      That knee wasn’t illegal, even Sonnen said so. besides it’s all on film and it clearly shows that the knee hit the chest….. And I don’t understand where you get the information that Weidman is faster and stronger? Because he beat Maia by a bullshit split decision in one of the most boring UFC fights ever? Or Munoz? Do you have any idea what Silva did to Maia? Or what he would have done with Munoz if Munoz showed up to fight him in the same bad shape as he fought Weidman? Munoz had a spare tire around his waste, totally out of shape so no surprise he couldn’t get Wiedman off.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        It was ab illegal knee. The video clearly shows Silva’s knee in Sonnen’s face. I don’t see how you can contradict this fact. Once again, Silva fans always forget that until that illegal knee, Sonnen was WINNING that fight. All Silva did was dance around Maia and was scared to engage him. What exactly did Silva do to Maia???? Do you consider head faking and hip swiveling as a technique to fight? Munoz was hurt, but on his worst day, he would take Silva down and keep him down. Silva sucks on the ground and Weidman is an elite wrestler. So where is the advantage? Just accept that Weidman WILL take Silva down easily and when he does the end will be near for Silva. Silva is fucking old and he has lost a step or two.

    In other news, the sky is blue.

  9. KIDD433 says:

    Wow,u wrestlers are in some serious denial

  10. Pee pee says:

    Gargoyle I will gladly rape your butthole for punishment of your retarded point of views. I’m not gay but I will forsure take one for the team by ripping your tight anus open with my elite mma cock for thinkin Weidman is Gona win. I will smother your cocky lips with my sour goat jiz bitch…I will bash my ballsack right in your zit pimpled face then scream whore 2 your mother as I’m cumming in your daddy’s face. Fuck you bitch

  11. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Weidman shouldn’t be at +232 that should be at least +600. Maybe if that bum is lucky he can hit Silva once or twice but other than that he will be humiliated for wasting a fight on Silva’s contract.

  12. Dee says:

    In the world of MMA you can’t just pick a fight and say this guy will win. Weidman is a tough fight and the UFC is running a risk by letting AS fight him. The guy will be 38. They’re not going to make any real money off of him because they’re taking too many chances.

  13. Ddddddd says:

    Gotta love the momma cuts

  14. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    For all you Silva fans, just picture Cain vs JDS II, that is what Weidman will do to Silva. But Weidman will finish Silva as he is old and won’t last like JDS did.

  15. Pee pee says:

    Ya but only problem with that is Anderson isn’t jds he’s the best mix marital artist in the world. Anderson silva will put Weidman in a triangle then jizz n fart in his face till he taps out.

  16. zack says:

    Its the same thing before every silva fight. Omg this dude is gonna best silva hes old. Chris wiedman was scared to fight vitor. Hes in this for the money. Watch Andersons fights. He eats punches for fun. And you think pillow fisted weidmann is gunna do something? Anderson will knock him out end of the first round.

    • GRT 3000 says:


    • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

      Exactly, always the same when Silva is fighting another great white hope. Especially when it’s a wrestler lol.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        I now see that you SEE racism everywhere, but that’s on you. Maybe a shrink could help you with that!!!?? Silva getting his ass beat as nothing to do with race. It has to do with being old and he’s due for a beating. There is something called The Law of Averages in life that is as true as gravity is. Let me explain this to you. Basically, it is if you live by the sword, you die by the sword, if you make a living hurting people you will be hurt. It makes no difference if it’s Jones, Cormier, Evans or GSP, Weidman, Silva will get his ass beat up very soon. So do you SEE racism here? lmao. btw; I am a white/black wrestler!! Lol

        • GRT 3000 says:

          The Law of Averages…?! ladies and gents we have a fucking GENIUS amidst us. lol

          your comments are snide asshole…and so you need to go watch LOTR’s or something and stfu. hahaha

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Yah and You’re just another know-nothing little forum worm. go crawl back into your dirt hole and eat shit worm. hahahaha

        • GRT 3000 says:

          it’s over now…you’re uncle can’t hurt you anymore. now like I said you need to stfu.

        • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

          lol you and your law of averages…That law only applies if it’s about two identical subjects. Other variables like skillset, speed, experience etc. come in play here. All but age are in favor of Silva, so no the law of averages does not apply here.

          And yes eventually Silva will lose a fight if he keeps fighting long enough, even Ali started losing in the end. But not yet, Weidman is not the one.

  17. krafty11 says:

    Thought gargoyle might enjoy this..

  18. 757 says:

    A.S. is going to smash Weidman. He is a good fighter but he is not ready for A.S. Gargoyle please shut the fuck up. You sound stupid…really fucking stupid. Please shut the hell up.

  19. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    Well since you said Please…..Fukcin Not Bitch. Listen up moron you might learn something. Ignorance is your downfall retard.

  21. rjh333 says:

    How about Munoz did not even connect once in the Weidman fight with a kick or a punch and 0 takedowns.
    Silva will lose and it will be a sub as soon as Chris gets on top of him Anderson is done. 1st round new UFC middle weight champion Chris “The All American Weidman !!”
