VIDEO | GSP Reacts To Weidman’s Win Over Anderson Silva

July 8, 2013 12:25 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“I predicted Chris Weidman would win but I didn’t think he’d win the way he did. I thought he would win with ground and pound or some kind of submission but he won with a beautiful knockout standing up.”

“But I think Silva just got caught. I still think he’s the best in the world.”

“Silva’s very good at getting into his opponent’s head so I don’t think it’s a lack of respect. It’s more that he plays mind-games with his opponents. It almost worked this time but he got caught. It doesn’t mean that it was a bad strategy for him.”

“You always recognize a great champion by how they come back from a loss and I know Silva came back from a loss and adversity before. He’s the greatest of all time for sure.”

“I’m really happy for Chris Weidman. He’s my friend, his house got flooded, he’s got a family and kid, and it couldn’t have happened to a better guy. I’m very happy for him. He’s a well deserved guy. He’s a good guy. He’s a high caliber athlete. He deserves it.”

“Depending if Anderson Silva would take a rematch, I believe Weidman can take that win again.”
