Anderson's ducking of opponents is beginning to surpass Tito. And yes, any time you say you won't fight a guy you are ducking him, screw ANY reason why. Silva took fights with who in the past, yet guys like Bisping and Weidman aren't good enough and now he wants money? Go out and kill Leites/Maia.... And fans would still flock to watch him. He has never been as huge of a draw as he could have been, and to me it is his own fault, and I don't buy that all of a sudden he is worried about money.
He might not be scared of anybody, but fear is not a prerequisite for ducking somebody.
That is all.....
If you can't get a wrestler off of you then train harder next time and change your gameplan. Justify NOT awarding the win to the man who controls his opponent and never gets hurt in the least. It is the onus of the fighter on the bottom to do something about it, not the person controlling.
That is all.....
I still cant believe people really believe in the rankings and 'belt'... This is a private company trying to sell PPV's... wake up people.
Fighter bashing vs not fighter bashing is like the difference between farting and dropping a silencer in a crowded elevator...
LMFAO to all these ducking talks.....seriously, who the f#ck is Chris Weidman is the big scheme of things and what has he done to be mentioned in the same sentence as Anderson. Anderson has more title defenses that Chris Weidman has career fights.
Anderson doesn't want to fight him because it bores him. Because he will gain nothing by beating a guy that 99% of you had no clue who he was ONE year ago.
That said, if Anderson refuses to fight, go ahead and strip him. Its only fair to the contenders like Weidman himself. But don't make it seem like he is scared of anyone at 185. Dude is just bored. Not interested.
Not one person in this thread has said ANYTHING resembling fear for why Anderson has openly said he doesn't want to fight Weidman. Anderson is ducking Weidman because he doesn't want to lose in the UFC and the UFC doesn't want him to lose until they get a few more paydays. By the time Weidman is given a title shot, Anderson will have walked away or set up a superfight with GSP and then retired.
Anderson will fight Belcher, Bisping or Vitor but he will never fight Weidman. Ever. Too dangerous.
Anderson afraid of Chris weidman? HAHAHAHAHA
Cool story brah.
Yep, Silva is scared of Weidman... Like he was scared of Sonnen... And Henderson...
Well, he's even scared of Bones...
What a coward!
Ju-Jitsu has given me a better life. You should try the same.
