Surprised Tate lasted as long as she did in the first fight. Her arm was getting bent pretty bad but she kept trying to get out.

Miesha took Ronda's back in the first fight, if I recall correctly.

Ronda is an unlikeable champ, but her judo and BJJ are currently untouchable. Plus her boxing is improving, getting crisper.

Jessica Eye called out Alexis Davis. Eye is the one I can see presenting a new challenge to Ronda after this defense. Her or a Kaufman rematch. Gritty veteran, hits hard.

Predictions: Anderson, Ronda, Diamond, Miller.

I like Poirier as a future title contender at 145. KZ and Cub losses are learning experiences.

Watching the highlights of the first fight on fox sports 1. anderson just ate those punches weidman landed on him against the cage. Plus silva hit him with those nice straight rights. That fool should've just ended the fight right there.

seent that too.. The punch that knocked him out looked the weakest laugh.gif

But gotta give weidman credit where it's due he took advantage of the Anderson buffoonery.. I still don't believe he's the champ but if he does it again tonight like a lot are expecting him too surprisingly then he deserves it.

The speed difference in striking is still pretty big. weidman did a good job of getting the takedowns in the first round but got his takedown stuffed in the second. If silva showboats and clowns, he loses. If he doesn't, he'll win.

That's what I have been saying since July!

So weird.

Weidman is a very technical striker. He's never been outstruck in a match either. He chained some nice combos to set that last KO punch up. It could have been a lucky KO punch, but all the striking leading up to that was precise and composed.

 

If Anderson doesn't clown and loses, a lot of folks are going to have to eat crow. I still want Anderson to win though.

post #252 of 40970
Yeah, weidman threw him off with the two rights back to back.

If he beats him again without any Anderson showboating then damb mean.gif I will be leaf

Eh, he was still missing a lot. If anderson didn't showboat he wouldn't have landed most of those punches in the first and second rounds. To end the fight he hit him with that left then anderson was doing the wobbly legs. He missed the next 2 punches then hit him with another left.

I'm not an anderson fan either, it's just frustrating seeing the best cost himself a fight. It's be like watching MJ goof around in a Finals game.

Of course Weidman was missing a lot, Anderson is pretty much in prime form at 38. Anderson's head movement is still amazing. Point being Weidman isn't a slouch with his striking, despite the speed difference, especially with his wrestling base.

I fully expect Silva to win in addition to clowning around a little bit but not w/ his hands down on some "your shots don't hurt me" steez.

post #256 of 40970
I'm an Anderson fan mean.gif he probably wouldn't have gotten hit if he didn't do the wobbly legs bs.. But he did and weidman capitalized on it and won the belt. I'll give him that much.. If he does it again with a super motivated Anderson then pimp.gif to weidman

grand master by KO, dont care what happened the last fight

post #258 of 40970
I haven't watched many of his fights. I remember his debut against Sakara and then his most recent. His striking looked ok in the last fight. People do say his striking is good.

Yep, Hall was sort of circling the cage and the crowd didn't like that. He's too nice man. To the point where it sort of holds him back as a fighter.

Damn I feel bad for Leben
