UFC 162 Results
"God... he's unbeatable freakin' Bruce Lee of Mixed Martial Arts".
We're pretty sure Chris Weidman meant that Anderson Silva was the Bruce Lee of MMA, but putting Anderson Silva's 17 fight win streak to an end with a knockout was probably as much of a shock to him as it was to everyone watching the main event of UFC 162, so we won't give him too much of a hard time for it.
Silva spent the first round taunting Weidman, showboating for him to throw punches, and at one point even put his own back against the cage and invited the challenger in. Needless to say that his antics earned Silva a significant amount of instant karma, as evidenced by more than just the KO; while the crowd bood Weidman's entrance, they ended up booing Silva's post-fight interview.
After a minute or so of the same in the second round, Silva got clipped with a punch and then pretended to be going down to a KO. Weidman, undaunted by Silva's shenanigans, kept throwing punches and in short order Silva was no longer pretending.

Taunting and dropping your hands will catch up to you eventually. I feel like Chris won because Silva didn't fight.
Silva did fight. He fought the way he fights. Saying he didn't fight is diminishing the fight that Chris brought.
Sorry, but it needs to be said: Did Seagal teach him that too?
You don't have to like opponents but you should definitely hespect them. Silva's lack of respect earned him that ****.
Flailing about ftw. Works for me.
I had held the opinion that Silva was a punk, a very talented and dangerous punk, but a punk nonetheless. And it was because of his attitude. Since his fight with Miai where he spent his time mocking and insulting his opponent instead of acting like a martial artist instead of a thug. Sure, I understand the fighter mindset and when you have a fighter as talented as Silva they sometimes allow their press and tagalongs to convince them they are untouchable. Pride comes before the fall and it was what got Silva, who is still one of the very best fighters out there.
Sorry about the rant and running everything together.
Never apologize. This is Bullshido!
