UFC 162 Video Blog Featuring Backstage Footage Of Anderson Silva Following LossPosted on July 11, 2013, 03:22 PM by Rory Kernaghan
Anderson Silva was dethroned at UFC 162 by Chris Weidman, the young prodigy took the Middleweight title with a forceful knockout in round two. Silva did his best to be respectful and calm post fight, but it becomes obvious how hard the loss was on Silva in this backstage footage.
He is comiserated by pop star Usher, before talking with Roy Jones JR and Ronaldo (the older one). Brazilians around the world were shocked and saddened by the loss, understandably considering that Silva is a national hero. I personally think that this is the best thing for Silva, it should help him re acquire his hunger for the fight game.
He lost his hunger after Pride FC and, with some help from the Nogueira brothers, found it again and took the UFC by storm. Weidman is an awesome fighter, and deserved his win at UFC 162. He was the better fighter. Something tells me that the rematch will be a very different affair.
