just watched the weidman fight .. it wasnt a bad effort by him. he probably won round 1 and was possibly winning 3 albeit point style as opposed to violence style until souza hit him with a nice combo and then about 30 seconds later the ko punch

I was at the cricket today so just got back to watch the fight. drat Weidman must have brain damage at this point. Watching Jacare take everything he had and still keep coming forward just have been disheartening for him.

middleweight top is just full of those kinda guys. no one's ever gone through a fight with romero or jacare without getting hurt (except whittaker i guess but he's uhh really good). and weidman just can't make it through a fight against them.

Yup, this is how I view it as well. Weidman is still good but might want to think about a retirement match at this point.

Financing dogs jokes aside Weidman has made a ton of money on his fights since Silva 2 so I hope he's saved it and can just retire. My hopes for a new win streak were done with this last fight so I'd rather not see him get further brain damage at least.

Agreed but I don't see Weidman wanting to crush cans just to stick around so I doubt his fortunes will change much if he keeps getting lined up against killers

Regardless of it being USADA or the first knockout from Rockhold that started it - it's been a bummer to see his slide even against the best in the division

it makes your "more impressive that he was winning" point even more depressing; the fact that he was getting the best of all of those guys before Something Went Wrong (or in Kelvin's case he got dropped and won anyway) means it's not like he hit a precipitous decline and sucks, he's still incredibly good and fighting to the best of his abilities, he just can't hang in the loving murderer's row that is the top of 185.

That was Chuck's problem. He had a few fights in which he had just enough success to feel as if he still had what it takes to compete, but it wasn't enough success to stop him from having his brains scrambled.

I hope we don't get to see a 48-year-old Chris Weidman breaking down and crying on camera in the press leadup to his quaternary fight with 57-year-old Anderson Silva.

Weidman is good.

He could just as easily have won all 5 of his last fights. Or be 0-5 in them. The top of 185 is a loving murderer's row.

i feel like rockhold and weidman are two of the most complete and best fighters in the ufc, but there's a lot of really good dudes in that weight class and they don't have good chins. unfortunate

So where does Weidman go from here? I don't think he deserves as much heat as he gets for losing the last three fights he had. They were against monsters.

But the damage he is taking worries me. That punch that knocked him out last night was weird.
