    There is a reason why most of the UFC fighters were picking Weidman to win. And it is not because he is not that good...

    I seen many polls where everyone saying that Anderson was gonna win. I did see something about Gsp saying he was going for Weidman. Do you guys Silva is done? Or is this just a small pebble in the road?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Did you watch UFC All Access where most of the interviews of other MMA stars saying they think Weidman was going to win?

    That's probably why. I only watched youtube interviews on this matter. Also, Silva has a huge fanbase so that's why the polls were like that. I remember people said It was going to go two ways. They said either Weidman would make Silva tap or Silva would dominate him in striking. I would've been fine with it if Silva would've got tapped. lol Striking seems so weird to lose. So do you think he would win in a rematch?

    Lol.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Hey, did you guys see the news? The rematch is one! OFFICIAL. YOUR PREDICTIONS?

    EDIT: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...8-in-las-vegas

    A rematch between newly crowned middleweight champion Chris Weidman and previous division kingpin Anderson Silva will take place December 28 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, according to UFC president Dana White.

    White made the announcement on ESPN's SportsCenter on Saturday, unveiling the main event for UFC 168. He also said the card will be co-headlined by a women's bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.

    "I back, trust me. I back," Silva said in a clip provided to SportsCenter.

    Silva initially stated he didn't want a rematch immediately after losing to Weidman, but it looks like it only took a week for him to change his mind.

    While White didn't predict what he thinks will happen this time around, he did mention that he does not expect a replica of their first fight at all.

    "I completely expect a totally different fight this time. I don't think he (Silva) will come out and taunt him (Weidman)...and do the things that he did. He went out and he played, and this isn't the first time he's done this, it's not like this has never happened. He's done it before and he got away with it. Chris Weidman didn't allow it. Chris Weidman kept his composure when he was messing around with him. Weidman went right after him and ended up knocking him out...This will be the biggest fight in UFC history," White said after being asked if Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre or Jon Jones was still a possibility.

    On Friday, MMA Fighting reported that the UFC's head honcho had narrowed down four possible locations for Weidman vs. Silva II: Dallas, New Jersey, Las Vegas and Brazil.

    Silva had a 17-fight win streak broken with his loss to "The All-American." He had been the UFC's 185-pound titleholder since October 2006 when he knocked out then-champ Rich Franklin with ease.

    Weidman is the only fighter to knock out Silva during the Brazilian's 38-fight career, but his victory is tainted in the eyes of some fans, given how much taunting and showboating "The Spider" did during their UFC 162 encounter.

    The victory boosted Weidman's professional MMA record to a perfect 10-0, including seven stoppage wins.

    On a serious note, I'm glad to hear. It's a rising sport. Better than boxing for sure.

    So my friend lost his MMA match. His opponent was the 2nd best Jiu Jitsu guy in America.

    My friend didn't have a scratch on him but the other was a bit of a mess.

    Submission. He slipped up at the end and got too close. Then put in a choke hold.

    He is gutted. But he gave it a go and that is the main thing.

    Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen
    Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler
    Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley
    Tim Elliott vs. Ali Bagautinov

    Predictions?

    Seems to be a lot of traction behind Hendricks, alright. A lot are picking him. He's 15/8, too. I'm split on it to be honest - it's certainly the biggest test GSP's faced in recent memory and you just feel Hendricks wants it so, so bad. Still, GSP on points at 4/5. It's always hard to look past the champ, especially one as seasoned and professional as GSP. Evans/Sonnen should be an absolute cracker as well!

    I didnt rate Hendricks at all and i still dont, he has nothign about him other than one punch.

    Having said that, he did very well against GSP (and the right call was made, he lost, there was no judge **** up)

    Thanks to Final for the sick sig!

    Yeah I agree. Hendricks won 2 and 4, with GSP winning 3 and 5; round one was a toss up. Hendricks did of course do far more damage and the rounds he did win he did so a lot more convincingly, but that's the flaws of the ten point system. It was his own fault, though. Stalled in round 5 and did absolutely nothing, GSP beat him on significant strikes and got the two takedowns in a row. It was probably Hendricks' lack of experience in 5-round fights that cost him in the end.
