I’m not going to lie. I didn’t watch the card. Aside from watching Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate roll around, I had no interest in the card. I have never been a fan of Anderson Silva. His showboating antics just pissed me off. If you are the best, don’t be a douche-bag. Go in and annihilate the opponent. Not going to lie it was satisfying to see Weidman KO his ass the first time, cuz he was showboating and bullshitting and got caught. Deep down there was a part of me that wanted to see Silva come in and just destroy Weidman… you know, show that he really had the goods. But what happened was insane.
Like I said I didn’t watch it. But I got a text from my buddy Dana who was watching it. “Silva just broke his leg in two man.. a checked leg kick snapped it.. gross as hell to see. His career is most likely over.” To which I had no other response then “HOLY SHIT!!!” and had to immediately jump on the internet to see what had happened. And the internet did not disappoint. There was already videos up. And it is fucking gross. I have seen video of that happening many years ago. I thought it was a fluke. You can see the video here… for as long as it is up. I’m sure Dana White will kill it at some point. But you can always search it.
Let me know what you think. Is Silva’s career done? At 38 do you think he has any plans of coming back. 2013 is a messed up year, we lost two of the longest winning champs in UFC history. Silva and GSP no longer champs. In some ways its a good thing. It means that we can finally open up the stage for some up and coming fighters. We will see what 2014 will bring.
