Oh, also, this might be a little late but, despite me being a huge silva fan, he deserved to lose. I can't imagine someone going into the octagon and dancing like that. Hell, I don't even like to do that even if I'm sparring at my gym just for fun. It's really disrespectful towards your opponent, and it shouldn't be done.

Any news on who Weidman is going against in the next event?

Dana just announced the rematch will be happening in December, so that'll likely be Weidman's (and Silva's) next event. Agree about Silva. I like Silva too but I detest the Clowning for the same reasons... I'll admit I said on my other MMA forum that "I hope if he does that Clown act, that  Weidman KO's him". I was still kind of horrified when it actually happened though...I had to replay it about a dozen times to make I was seeing what I thought I was seeing.  I suspect Silva will be a little more respectful in the upcoming rematch. ;)

I hope so! I really wanna see a clean match between those two. It's going to be awesome, and I'm excited biggrin.gif

Me too. It'll be nice to see the old Silva again. Hopefully...

I don't know. Clowning was part of Silva's method but I have a feeling if he'd ditch it for serious fighting he would dominate Weidman in a re-match. At least as far as striking goes.

Unfortunately Mayweather won the fighter of the year. I seriously wanna see him against Pacman, but then again that'll make his record 44-1 so I doubt he'll do it.

Well I'm excited for the title match. 

 

I say Aldo defeats Jung by TKO, most likely second round.

post #581 of 671
Looks like a pretty good card. I think Aldo will take it too.

Yeah, I'm with you there.  Rewatching that fight, Machida won at least 2 of the rounds in my eyes.
