UFC 168’s Anderson Silva On Chris Weidman: “He Killed Me”

UFC 168’s Anderson Silva On Chris Weidman: “He Killed Me”

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has moved on from his stunning loss to Chris Weidman earlier this year.

However, as we have come to understand with Silva, everything he says has two sides to it.

During the World Tour earlier this week to promote the event, “The Spider” had the following to say about Weidman, who he will rematch this December at UFC 168.

“Sometimes, people who watch the UFC, (they) don’t respect the champion,” Silva said. “Chris is the new champion. The people need to respect this guy because he killed me (in the first meeting).

“It’s normal. He’s the champion. You need to respect (him).”

Following the loss, Silva said much the same. He even denied wanting to rematch Weidman.

As for pressure, Silva said “I no have more pressure now….I’m working hard for me, for Brazil; but I no have no pressure.”

Is Silva showing Weidman the kind of respect he didn’t leading up to the first meeting? It sure seems to be that way.
