Anderson Silva: Chris Weidman’s knockout win was ‘definitely lucky’

September 26, 2013 11:36 am by Chris Taylor

Former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson “The Spider” Silva, recently participated in a Q & A session (via Fight Hub TV) where he was asked to comment on the combination, thrown by Chris Weidman, that put him down at UFC 162 in July:

“Lucky, definitely lucky.” Stated the former champ.

When asked to clarify if he considers the upset win by Weidman to be nothing more than luck, Silva simply laughed off the question and refused to answer, asking for the next reporter to give him a new question.

Silva’s response to Weidman’s fight-ending combination came as a surprise, considering how the former 185-pound kingpin has been so adamant in asking fans and media alike to show Weidman, the respect he deserves.

Regardless, Anderson has stated that he plans on “Returning the knockout” when he and Weidman rematch at UFC 168 this December.

What do you think Penn Nation? Was Chris Weidman’s knockout of Anderson Silva ‘Lucky’, as “The Spider” suggests?
