0705_Chris-Weidman_silva_ufc_gttySome people said it couldnt be done ... but last night reigning UFC champ Anderson Silva LOST his first title fight in seven years ... when Chris Weidman knocked his ass out.

It all went down in Las Vegas as the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Chris and Silva faced off ... with Silva -- considered the best MMA fighter in the history of the sport -- defending his seven-year stronghold on the middleweight title.

But Silva was fighting cocky -- with his hands down -- and by the 2nd round it caught up to him ... when Weidman caught the Brazilian with a nasty left hook. Silva instantly went down and Weidman was crowned the new champ.

Who'd have thunk it?

It's a shame he went out fighting ****y like that. When he gets his rematch (he will) I think he will regain his belt.

When did these boys become celebrities worth gossiping about. I swear, between the bikini's featured in" who would you rather" and the boys in their little wrestling outfits, you guys are just begging the ladies to stop reading here, right???

Jesus H. Vishnu, just because you call it 'breaking news' doesn't change it from being a SPOILER. I would think people that make their livings hanging on the neck of popular media would be a little more considerate of the fan base that made your 'company' what it is today.

Are ufc matches predetermined ?


It's no longer about whoever is the better fighter, its just about who pulls the bigger crowds.

Weidman didn't win.

Silva lost it himself.

Soooo disappointing.

Obvious Silva is bored with fighting. Silva would have won easily if he remotely took the fight serious.

After listening to Silva's after fight speech i noticed he kept saying "I'm tired....i had the belt a long time...Chris is the champion now" i'm wondering if he threw the fight on purpose. He says he wont fight for the belt anymore but that he has ten more fights. So i take that as he no longer wants to be a title holder he just wants to fight for the paycheck and keep it simple.

This fight was rigged...
look here, and tell me if the swing in his left hook has enough force to knock anybody down... heck no. SIlva was seen at the club after the fight... he probably made 50 times more by losing this fight. Mark my words: The rematch will be the biggest hyped media fight, in Rio de Janeiro, with a huge price. (people in Brazil pay top dollar for these fights... 10 times more that in the US.) Dana White is a biz man... and all of this is strictly biz.
Also, Silva DOESN'T SPEAK ENGLISH... he memorized the phrases he spoke... which were "He won, he is the new champion" --> Food for thought.

PS, I met Silva two weeks ago... trust me - he speaks little or no english.

Check out that weak ass left hook. that sent Silva diving!
