Weidman: I’d Still Beat Him Again

“I’m not here to change other people’s opinion but I’ll tell you one thing: he did not give me the belt, he did not throw the fight. It was nothing like that. He was doing exactly what he does in all his fights. He had his hands down, he was trying to mentally defeat me, make me freeze, make me feel like I didn’t deserve to be in the ring with him. I didn’t want to let him do that. I wanted to put him in his place, and that’s it. I think he’s still unbelievable, I think he’s still the greatest of all time, and I think I’d still beat him again.”

While a guest on today’s edition of “The MMA Hour” newly crowned middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, told host Ariel Helwani that he can repeat history with another victory over Anderson Silva should the two rematch.

    Whatever helps you sleep at night cause you know he didn’t give you his all and you would never stand a chance if he tried. First of all he doesn’t even need to play with your head, he could of got straight to the point and knocked your ass out!

    • Sasquatch says:

      LMFAO!… More like whatever makes you sleep better at night if you really believe that verbal diarrhea you just spewed! How was the front row STD 3000?… learn anything?

    • GRT 3000 says:

      @Cumcatch, you need to start thinking for yourself dumbass. you don’t have a line unless you’ve read it from someone else. lol I loved the front rows son – best seat in the house. Got to watch the GOAT so bored from 10 years of winning that he served his chin up for a weaker fighter. Weidman even thanked him for that in the end. & don’t think I’d change my handle to comment in here shit for brains. I was in Vegas you triple K dipshit. think I’d take time off the strip to come chat with you fools?

      • Sasquatch says:

        Haha.. there you are you spineless piece of sh!t. Yup you got a front row lesson in humiliation and still didn’t learn anything, but I’m not surprised. Yeah I’m sure you were on the strip giving $5.00 blowjobs to try and regain some of the $$ the love of your life lost you haha. Must have really pissed you off when Silva kissed Weidman between rounds before he got KTFO hey.. haha.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        a lesson in humiliation? f(u)ck your a dumb shit. I’m an Anderson fan pal, not the man himself. & your mom did give me a $5 dollar blowjob out there – good stuff. how did that KKK party ramp up after the black man lost. did you guys sacrifice a goat for that?

        • Sasquatch says:

          You want to know something you racist little f**ker, I’m an Anderson fan too, I’m just not a love blind zombie fan such as yourself. I look at the actual fight stylistically… your just too busy starstuck and pulling your pud at this mystical superhero you fail to realize he’s human. People like you don’t even recognize the threat other fighters like Weidman pose because know nothing about MMA.. I’m guessing you don’t even train any martial arts for f**k sakes by some of the comments you make. Now kindly f**k off!

        • GRT 3000 says:

          wrong buddy…I actually thought it was good for Anderson to get ktfo for pulling that shit. I think it will wake his ass up and mk. him realize that his career is winding down, and if he wants some added longevity he needs to cut that shit out. & Weidman didn’t beat him stylistically…he cracked him one while he was clowning.

    im not gonna sit here and act like i know what anderson was doing…..but heres the facts wideman….silva did not give you his best…..i trulyy believe since anderson is gettin a rematch, which frankly, i dont even kno if he wanted it or not cuz he wants jones or gsp….but if anderson gives u his all….i think a ref will have to tell u what just happened….but then the other side of it is when anderson did open up and try to land some shots…i dont know if he did any damage or even caught chris…i dont kno guys i really cant call this one

    • Sasquatch says:

      All Anderson hit was air (landed some nice leg kicks though). Weidman was slipping better then him and was even clowning back at him in the first round which IMO really pissed him off.. his corner was telling him to calm down between rounds and he started yelling at Chris from across the octagon. Silva’s antics back fired big time!

      • GRT 3000 says:

        stfu – you weren’t there. Weidman looked like a lost puppy. Anderson had him so spooked after rnd 1 (which he does for everyone) that he was tired, flat-footed easy pickins’ in round 2. Anyone there could easily see that. Anderson read that (cuz he’s the frickin’ GOAT) & just took his arrogant ass routine a little too far…Weidman’s not better – he got a gift-wrapped UFC belt, which he will lose (easily) if Anderson cuts that bullshit out.

  3. Dddddddd says:

    It’s hilarious that you guys are still delusional. Chris kicked his ass and I loved every second. The more you guys show your big tits the more I love it. I love tits bitches.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Dude, these Silva zombies are The Walking Dead. Most are drop outs and below average in intelligence = Equals a Silva fan.

      • Steven Thurman says:

        I like to think im pretty close to average.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          LOL…my apologies.. I am sure you are an exception to the rule and WAY above average!! There are ALWAYS anomalies!!!

        • Steven Thurman says:

          Lol, I wouldnt go that far. Maybe once I learn 2+2, i can be considered way above average.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        oh look church fatty (pig – cop) is back from his shame closet. I like how you vanish after EVERY wrong prediction you make like a pussy, & then come back trolling when you can talk shit to people. your a waste of space, coward @Fart.

  4. Not You says:

    Weidman may not have made the most money at 162, but he sure is happy over all the people jumping on that dick

  5. squid says:

    congratulations chris. i would like to see a rematch

  6. 757 says:

    Got to agree with Sasquatch and Gargoyle on this. I though AS was going to win. He lost . He was beat by a better fighter. He acted like a tool and got knocked on his ass…..admit it tools he got his ass beat!! Weidman would do it again too! I watched the fight and there is no way that AS can beat this kid. Styles make fights and he will beat AS again.

    • Scotty says:

      Talk about delusional.. Weidman isnt the better fighter, he won by the best fighter being absolutely stupid.. Come on now, just watch the fight again and just watch what Anderson was doing.. He was doing more than he did in any other fight.. Great for Weidman who threw that last punch to catch Silva, cant take that away from him but calling him the better fighter is just crazy..

    • magoo says:

      Yea I’ve watched it a couple more times as well. Chris easily handled him in that 1st round with some nice grappling, transitions and almost tapped his ass out! Silva don’t want no part of the new MW champ! By the way where the fukc were all his fans before the fight?

  7. Apolllo says:

    Ain’t gonna be no rematch. Dana needs to elaborate .. the only thing Silva could do that no one else could, before his last match was pick his opponents, those days are over. UFC has gotten what it wanted out of developing a market in Brazil with the best paper champion of all time, conquering Lutter, Cote, and the American Pscho.

    • Scotty says:

      Wrong! Dana is a business man, u know how much more money will be made in the rematch? This is a promotions dream right here.. It was a win, win for the UFC.. Cause if Silva won then a super fight would have came about and made tons of money.. Now that he lost, if silva wants the rematch, its going to be bigger than the Silva/Sonnen rematch.. Which Silva wins, the super fight talk will be back and the Roy Jones talk will still continue.. ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!

  8. TJ says:

    how is it lucky? weidman wanted to punch silva in the face, then he punched him in the face. i’m confused.

  9. Mike says:

    I do believe that the reason Silva used these tactics against Weidman & Maia was to entice them to keep the fight standing because he didn’t wanna go to the ground with either fighter.

    But, what we have seen is that Silva is most spectacular when he is fighting someone he is afraid to lose to.

    Silva won’t win a rematch simply by “trying harder”, but he will probably win because his training will be more focused. That isn’t to say he wasn’t working before, but that he became complacent. I think he will win the rematch.

  10. Keith says:

    Well done Weidman but that was no where near Andersons best. You could see he didnt care if he lost the belt or not, Silva didnt and doesnt have anything left to prove. That desire to win that made him so great has been worn away by the pressure of defending the belt for 7 years.
    Hes happy to have that pressure off him thats why he didnt ask for a rematch. He doesnt want the belt anymore

  11. Dan Jenkins says:

    Congratulations Chris Weidman he stayed focused on the job and walked away with the biggest upset I’ve seen, I still believe a focused Silva would beat Weidman but I’ve been made to eat my words. Congratulations again Chris Weidman

  12. jp says:

    heres my thing the post fight interview said it all as for chris if he wasnt trying to change ppls opinions he would have never made this statemen

  13. Mitch says:

    When anderson was striking he made wiedman look like a rookie….. He looked horrible. No doubt vitor would kill him

  14. 757 says:

    Excuse me …they were striking when AS got knocked out…..

  15. ThaiClincher911 says:

    All you saying “SIlva wasn’t at his best” or “He was bored” or “He threw the fight” are completely doing a disservice to him. All you said last several months of “How easily” Silva would beat Weidman. “Silva is the GOAT”. So now by your logic? He’s not the GOAT cause he didn’t give it his all. Silva is a clown and always has been. He’s made a career of smashing up B level fighters. Hendo, Okami, and Maia are the only top 5 contenders he’s defeated in his UFC career. Now he fights a legit #1 and you see what happened. Hell even SOnnen was around#7 ranked for his fights with Silva. Silva is good, but he’s not as good as many of you like to believe. Truly take an objective look at the level of opponents he’s “Owned” and you’d be hard pressed to keep a straight face that he’s the GOAT.

  16. JON "BONED" JONES says:

    This is funny because we all know that the rematch is pointless because Silva will just run through Weedman… Look at Silva vs Vitor or Silva vs Henderson… guard up the whole time and they couldn’t land anything on him… Silva was just not motivated, GOT CAUGHT and KOd… has happened to the best, the only thing i was mad at the way he did it… too much clowning, Soares is right, he took it too far this time and paid for it. We all learn lessons in our lives… This is one for him to learn from.

  17. Sleu says:

    -_- I like the arguments on both sides lol. As a fan of Weidman, he was definitely the smarter fighter and capitalized..but as a fan of Silva as well, Silva didn’t get moped for 4 rounds and dominated (like the weidman fans are acting), obviously didn’t fucking go out there to get knocked out, but yall know he wasn’t taking it serious either. if they re-match and he takes it serious, he’d probably get the W. people saying he’s only beaten shitty people. well as Rogan/Dana say, he makes it look shitty because of how good he did over the years. that’s just fact. So name all of these top level MWs he hasn’t beaten -_- if that is TRULY the case

  18. GRT 3000 says:

    BJ Penn said it himself…the man was so bored of being the GOAT he decided to serve up his chin. lol

    AS acted an ASS and lost…he beat himself, any fool can see that.

  19. Keoni says:

    I agree, bj too was unmotivated cuz he knew GSP Diaz and rory were jokes so he just toyed w them! Only reason he threw in the towel in the GSP fightis cuz he knew if he really wanted to he could take out GSP with one punch! With Diaz he wanted to show the world he could take damage and rory was just a big joke so he took him lightly and let him do whatever’s he wanted cuz he too knew he is the goat and got complacent… Even against Fitch he let him try to win cuz he knew he was better. Bj silva and rickson GOATS!!!
