This weekend the questions about Chris Weidman’s place in UFC history has been answered. It was apparent from the beginning of the fight Anderson was taking this one much more serious then their previous bout. There was no hands down, no gloating, but also no lack in confidence coming from Chris Weidman. In the first round when the two men tied up, the champion nailed silva above the ear dropping him to the mat. For a moment it looked like deja vu but this time Anderson composed himself and grabbed on. He was able to survive the round and even landed a few good shots from the ground, drawing alittle blood. Then we got the second round. It only lasted bout a minute but both fighters came out strong. Anderson, who is known to have strong second rounds came out looking good. They felt each other out, both throwing leg kicks, but Weidman checks Andersons first kick. Silva walks it off and a moment later throws his next and last leg kick at Chris Weidman. When the champ went to put his knee into the kick & check it, the audience got to see what can happen in a contact sport. The Brazilian hero cleanly broke both bones in his shin. Dropping immediately to the ground it was obvious to everyone the fight was over. Anderson was taken immediately to the hospital and rushed into surgery. One of the bones required a rod to correct the break. The other one is expected to heal on it own. While most people that watched the accident assumed this would be a career ending injury for the 38 year old fighter. But the word around the hospital is that post surgery the former champs number one question is when he can start training again. As strange as it will be to see Anderson in a non title fight, after seeing his foot flop around like I did saturday I’ll be happy just to see him walking in the octagone again.
