Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva 2 Results – Prior to taking on Anderson Silva for the second time, Chris Weidman had the following to say in Torrance during the world tour hyping his main event battle at UFC 168:
“It’s crazy that, I was basically a no-name guy before this last fight. I took a lot of short-notice fights, not a lot of promoting behind me. And now after this last fight, I have a chance to be part of the biggest fight in UFC history,” said Weidman (10-0), who fights out of Mineola, N.Y. “It’s a surreal situation. I’m excited to do it, but obviously the main thing, the main focus for me is I gotta go out there and do my job and win this fight. There are a lot of doubters out there and I’m excited to prove them wrong.”
Wondering how this unbelievably hyped fight went down? Then keep reading to find out.
Weidman grazed with a front kick to the body early in round one. He then successfully achieved a takedown, but The Spider immediately got up. Then Silva pushed him away and landed a few knees, but Weidman connected with a HARD right that hurt Silva and sent him reeling to the canvas. The champ landed a bunch of shots before finding himself in Silva's guard. And for the rest of the round, Weidman landed ground and pound, including elbows. That said, Silva did fight back with some hard hammerfists that cut his opponent.
Weidman easily wins round one.
Hard low kick by Silva started round two off. Hard middle kick by Weidman. Then Silva landed a very hard low kick which literally appeared to break the former champ's leg when Weidman checked it. Silva fell to the canvas in agony.
There has never been a stranger ending to two consecutive fights in the history of the sport. The leg literally snapped (could be seen on the replay). Terrible, terrible stuff. Hope Silva is okay. This could very well be the end of his career.
Chris Weidman defeats Anderson Silva by TKO (injury) at 1:16 of round two.
