“Regardless, he won the fight. I wouldn’t say he beat him, but he won the fight. He won the competition and you have to congratulate him — what he’s done nobody’s ever been able to do, one of them is knock out Anderson Silva and the other thing is beat Anderson Silva twice. Nobody’s ever done that, so congratulations to him. Regardless if it’s [way he won] controversial people are going to say things and yeah there’s something [the injury] but at the end of the day he went out there and won the fight. He should be respected — he was counted out both times. Chris Weidman should be respected.”
