Champ goes down and of course it's...

by Jason Miller

Champion, um, former champion, Anderson Silva gets KO'd by Chris Weidman and let the controversy begin.  Here is the Youtube video I found and there is no doubt that Weidman knocked the hell out of him.  Not the greatest quality but you get the idea of just watching what happens.  As a reporter from Yahoo said, earlier in the fight Weidman had an ankle lock on Silva and there would have been a better sell if the fix was in.  But you can NOT argue that the almighty Anderson Silva got knocked the bleep out.  Post fight rant was that he had a concussion but the fix was in?

Why when we have had a champ like Silva, who has been great for MMA and the UFC, do we start crying foul when they lose.  Just like Buster Douglas and Mike Tyson.  It makes no sense other than it gives folks something to complain about because there isn't enough complaining in the world as is.

Congrats, Chris Weidman you have done something that no one else has done in the UFC, you put your power to the face of the drop my hands and ask for more former champ.  You gave him more and I will leave you with this.  Please Chris do NOT be a one hit wonder and now get your ASH kicked the first time out defending your belt.  Do NOT let the fame and money go to your head because that's how you will become a great champ and that's how you will silence the critics that say there was a fix.  Till the next time sports fans...
