I just double checked his fight record, Ben's right, I guess we saw him when he fought in Strikeforce on Showtime.

Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman

Round 1:
Herb Dean is our referee for this middleweight championship bout. After months of hype, hundreds of predictions and miles of pre-fight footage, here we go. No touch of gloves for this one. Silva circling, bouncing on his heels. Weidman picks his spot and shoots for a deep double. He gets it, winding up in half guard. Weidman postures up and cracks Silva with a series of short punches and elbows. Silva regains his guard. Weidman stands, unloads a few punches, then drops down for a leglock. Silva escapes and stands. Silva easily evades a jab. Silva just walked back to the fence, a la Bonnar. Weidman looks to tie up. Silva pushes him off, then disdainfully walks backward with his hands at his hips. Wow, this is crazy. Silva smiles and shakes his head. Weidman slowly paws forward with his jab. Silva throws a high kick with complete disregard. Silva is just clowning here. This is so wild. Weidman looks lost on his feet. Silva urges Weidman to do something. The horn sounds and Silva kisses Weidman on his cheek. Geez.

Round 2:
Silva still urging Weidman to do something. Weidman connects with a left hook and Silva mocks his by dancing around, acting like he's dazed. Silva easily stuffs a double, then tells Weidman about it. Weidman misses a wild high kick. Silva with his hands down. Weidman presses forward with a combination. Weidman drops Silva with a left hook! Oh. My. God. Weidman lunges on top of Silva with another right. He's out. It happened. It actually happened. I'm speechless.

UFC 162 results: Chris Weidman def. Anderson Silva via knockout (punch) at 1:18 of round 2.

Although I was rooting for Chris, I think the crowd shouldn't boo Anderson, he is a great champion.

Yeah, Joe said it, "You can't play games in the Octagon."

Respect to Weidman, but Anderson has himself to thank/blame for this loss on his record now. What a shame.

Why do you feel bad for him? And if he's tired and bored, why didn't he just retire as champion. I would have preferred that to him getting out there and doing that nonsense and lose the championship like this. I'm not sure he deserves a rematch, at least not right away. Maybe if he has to fight to get the chance to reclaim it, he'll appreciate it more.

Well said, Bonnie, well said. I really agree with all you're saying. Tom just told me that on ESPN, there is already scuttlebutt that he threw the fight. I don't buy that for a minute but it's fun to hear all the speculation.

I felt bad for Anderson when the crowd was booing him. Maybe that's what adamt meant...

I guess that last sentence about a rematch, etc... does sound a bit harsh; I probably shouldn't have put that. I was just disappointed at how he acted in this match. I meant nothing negative, anything like that, with my ? to Adamt, I just wasn't sure "why" he felt bad for him so I was asking.

Yes, I agree, they should not have booed him; he's held and defended the title for seven years they said, that's a long time, and he deserves respect for that. He did sound tired when he was talking with Joe after the fight, and he made it sound like he doesn't even want to fight for the belt again, but that could just be what he's feeling in this moment. I don't know, time will tell if he was serious about that. I thought he was very gracious in his speech thanking everyone including the United States.

I wonder what JB thinks about this?
