Anderson Silva paid the ultimate price for showboating tonight in front of Chris Weidman at UFC 162 as he got caught with a knockout blow that ends his unparalleled unbeaten run.

We’re underway in the main event. Weidman goes for the early takedown and Silva looks to have initially stuffed it, but then Weidman continues and gets him to the mat.

Weidman throws a few strikes from Silva’s half guard. He postures up and gets another couple of punches off. Weidman attempts to pass the guard, but is unsuccessful and stands up over Silva. A few punches land as he stands over him.

Weidman drops down for a heel hook, but Silva stays calm and manages to spin out and back to his feet.

Silva calmly walks around the Octagon and Wiedman stands in front of him. He closes the distance and throws a few punches as Silva keeps his hands low and they land.

More lows hands from Silva and he takes what Weidman dishes out then fires back with a kick.

He continues to motion Weidman forward. Weidman’s being cautious though and not taking full advantage of it, and perhaps for good reason as you never know what Silva’s going to do next.

Silva fires off a head kick. He’s expending more energy motioning Weidman to fight than actually unleashing his offense.

The round closes and the two men hug briefly.

Round two opens with Silva still in playful mode, pretending to be wobbled by a Weidman punch. He throws off a Bruce Lee style side kick. Weidman attempts a takedown and Silva stuffs it.

More showboating from Silva pretending to be hurt by a punch, but Weidman wades forward with more punches and while Silva is able to avoid a few, a left hook connects and absolutely starches him, toppling him to the canvas like a felled tree.

He follows up with a few ground and pound punches, but Silva’s already done and the fight’s over, Weidman’s won by KO!

So Silva’s 16 fight unbeatean run in the UFC finally comes to an end, and his remarkable title reign comes to a close, and by knockout of all things.

He’s only got himself to blame though as this loss was largely down to his in-cage antics which he’s successfully managed to get away with in the past, sometimes to jaw-dropping effect, but on this occasion his luck finally ran out and all credit to Weidman for bringing it to him and securing one of the biggest wins in UFC history.

  1. WOW!!!!

    He is such a disrespectful f*ck…and he got what he deserved for his Monkeying sh*t. You can have tremendous talent, but showing no respect for your opponents like he has been doing in the cage would get you fucked and make you look like the biggest moron in MMA history. And this piece of shit talks about martial arts and respect shit out of the cage! THE BIGGEST MORON IN MMA HISTORY.. THATS WHAT ANDERSON SILVA IS TODAY!

    HATS OFF TO WEIDEMAN FOR BELIEVING IN HIMSELF AND GIVING US MMA FANS THE BIGGEST SHOCK EVER…

  2. It’s been a long-time coming, you can only do that level of showboating for so long before it catches up with you.

    Still an amazing fighter though and i’m very intrigued to see how he bounces back from this.

  3. Clearly ufc is rigged, weidman hardly celebrated his victory nor did he look that excited about beating silva. Silva doesn’t want a rematch or wants to fight for another title just too stick it to Dana White. It was quite obvious weidman gassed himself out after 2 mins and had nothing left in the tank. UFC the new WWF. Without silva UFC has nothing to be interested about. Unless you are into the boaring old GSP show.

  4. Weidman didn’t celebrate because he knew he won due to Silva’s buffoonery as opposed to coming out and laying into the guy like he wanted to. Nonetheless sometimes in a fight you take whatever the situation gives you, in this case it was an unnecessary level of clown college antics waiting to be hit in the face.

  5. Hello!

    When I saw the match between Silva and Weidman, It felt kinda weird. I’m not taking anything from Weidman’s performance but I didn’t see the same hunger in Silva’s eyes, his attitude in the match and after the match was like he no longer care. He has been in the business for a long time and can see the lack of motivation when you have beating up the whole division for such a long time. I felt like he want to leave his legacy on a younger more hungry guy and I’m not that surprised if you look at Silva’s age and record. He had a great carrier and done great things for the sport and In my opinion he should have his own hall of fame.

    To bad he had to finish this fight with such bad and unprofessional behavior but I guess he just wanted to entertain the crowd one last time before leaving the throne.

  6. If you look back at some of his other performances in the past – the fight against Damien Maia in particular – he’s done this kind of thing before where he seems a bit uninterested / distracted. I think it often comes when it’s an opponent he’s not really motivated to fight. He’s been calling for a superfight with GSP for a long time, and I think it’s something like that he needs at this late stage in his career to bring out the best in him.

    Having said that, now that he’s been defeated he might come back more focused – time will tell.
