Freddie Roach: ‘Anderson Silva lost because he got lazy’

“I definitely saw him get knocked out. My thought on that is that he just plays around too much. I think it’s too easy for him sometimes. He just got caught playing around. In this sport, one punch can change things, and this isn’t a sport you should actually play [around].

“The thing is, I think he gets a little bored in there because he’s talented, and he seems like he’s more talented than a lot of the guys. He is one of the best I’ve ever worked with. He understands timing and distance really well. I think he could’ve avoided taking those shots, but again, I’m not sure what his thought process was. I think he was just a little bit lazy and playing around too much.”

Famed boxing coach, Freddie Roach, took to ‘The MMA Hour‘ this morning and gave his take on the Anderson Silva defeat delivered by the fists of Chris Weidman.

    Absolutely 100% correct. That’s why he isn’t the champ anymore. I already know all the AS guys will say he beat himself etc etc bla bla. Weidman knocked him out regardless. When you play around and don’t respect your opponent that’s how it goes….as it should be.

    Honestly I’m a huge Silva fan but watching the fight I was embarrassed to see him act like that… I hope it taught him a lesson to go into the fight and just dominate instead of toying.. I think Weidman is gonna be cocky in the rematch though he swears that he won on his own

    • Sasquatch says:

      Of course he swears he won on his own.. it was his fist that KO’d him!.. smh

      • GRT 3000 says:

        pffft…after A.S. served his chin up yeah. did you even read the article? Freddy Roach is a white guy yah know…

        • I Heard....... says:

          … are a douchebag racist.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          STFU clown…@Cumquatch is a triple K hater of AS b/c he’s black. get it now?!

        • 757 says:

          GRT3000 you are wrong here. He served his chin up and got hit. Why do you serve your chin up? That’s not how a champion acts. When you do you get smacked. Like it or not Weidman is a professional fighter. AS served up his chin and Weidman knocked it around the back of his head like in the old Daffy Duck cartoons. It was hilarious and great. Only a cocky douchebag does that. He did. Don’t take away from the other guy for taking his belt.

          You mean millionaire fight trainer . Who owns his own gym, and travels around the world training championship fighters. White or black who cares. Who would we tend to believe him or you about what a fighter can or cannot do?

        • ThaGreenBandit says:

          Uh, I must’ve missed something, because… WTF does race have to do with anything in this situation?! WTF does race have anything to do with anything on this site?

        • Sasquatch says:

          @ std3000.. you want to explain to me why I’m a triple k hater of AS.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          @757 – just saying the fight would have been different if AS would have squared off and just fought. Standing there ducking, weaving with your arms down and chin up was a dick move & he payed the price for it. Especially in front of a big 185’er like Weidman. good on em’ for knocking him out AS deserved it for that shit imo. But if AS cuts that shit out, Weidman is going down.

          & your absolutely right all…color/race has NOTHING to do with this. This is an old line of b/s & a dig at Cumquatch. Dude is racist.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          @Cumquatch, I dunno man. A piss poor upbringing? emotional insecurity? It’s not something I fully understand. But I do know that A.Silva is an exceptional athlete and not some hate target for hillbilly’s.

        • Sasquatch says:

          AGAIN… explain why I’m a racist. You’re the only one on this site who even pulls the “race” card so who’s the racist again?? Your sh!t’s getting old so put up or shut up sh!t kid!

        • Sasquatch says:

          Pathetic response from a pathetic piece of sh!t.. you’re just a troll living underneath Anderson’s sack.. sad.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          You want me to explain to you why ‘you’re’ racist?! What am I your psychiatrist? You need to tune down the anger Bobby-Jo, that’s whats getting old.

        • Sasquatch says:

          So what you’re saying is you don’t know why you call me a racist.. you’ve got to be one of the dumbest mother f**kers I’ve come across. Your dad should have bonked you at birth.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          being racist is associated with being of low level intelligence bud ~ so you’re the fu(c)kin’ moron. & I can’t tell you WHY YOU are racist, I can only speculate that you’re insecure, stupid, & have a shitty upbringing. I call you a racist clown, b/c that’s what you are.

        • Sasquatch says:

          You’re to f**kin dumb to answer a simple question, you’re the one who labeled me a racist and you don’t even know why! Make sure to bonk any offspring you have so we don’t have anymore retards running around.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          my MBA, B.Comm, B.A. & Tech Diploma say I’m smart buddy. You want proof as to why I call you a racist now? do you honestly expect me to go back through 6 months of your hate charged commenting on fighters of color? Now go fetch your sacrificial goat & light your torch with the rest of the clans-men…black fighters are up in the next event.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        • Sasquatch says:

          You forgot to add your diploma in chronic BSing and MMA delinquency. Your momma’s still changing your sh!tty shorts no doubt. How about repeating at least one racial remark I supposedly made.. think you can manage that you lying piece of sh!t.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          ahahaha – two little fruits getting all mad like babies.

          & @Fagoyle, your the biggest tool piece of shit I’ve ever come across on the net – & that’s saying allot. I make bank buddy – that’s what smart people do. Stupid cop fags like you hand out tickets to old ladies J walking & make peanuts. You comment like a leather ass cop on here, b/c you have nothing better to do. & believe me I would kick the shit oughta you if I ever had the opportunity.

          & @Cumcatch – you made racist comments man…nuff said…what do you want people to believe when you do shit like that?

        • Sasquatch says:

          Well your status just went from a lying piece of sh!t to a pile of sh!t. As far you kicking the sh!t out of anyone.. I bet you couldn’t kick the sh!t out of your own shorts kid.

  3. Phallica says:

    I hope Silva tears his head off.

  4. Ddddddddd says:

    You can say that about anyone’s loss. If I have to read another funkin stupid article about the reasons Anderson lost im gonna puke.

  5. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    That is a correct assessment by Roach. Silva wasn’t focused and looked annoyed. I didn’t like the taunting either, it’s not the way a martial artist conducts himself.
    I’m sure with a renewed focus and determination he will get his belt back in december fairly easy.

    • Dan Jenkins says:

      @ the Dutchman, tho I agree with you that Silva will come back more focused and (hopefully) respectful, and that martial artist SHOULD act with discipline and respect, I think that the “clowning” on Silva’s part may have started as a psychological tactic and although I don’t agree with it some of the greatest fighters have used the same ploy my chief example being Muhammad Ali, everything comes down to your mental focus, your timing, technique it all starts in the mental. If you cloud someone’s mind you get them out of their rhythm. Like I said its not a tactic that is morally right but neither is T.R.T

  6. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    Silva is going to get his ass whipped. He’s an OLD FART now. He’s too old and slow and going to be a fighting a guy that WON’T have ring rust that is hungrier and stronger and just better everywhere. Just think about that awhile nutlickers???? Yah, That’s right, that’s right….Silva is fukced..Now you tools see it.
