“Some people say it was a lucky punch, some people say he’d never land it again, but the fact is, he trained for that and he got it. I have no regrets. I think in life you can look back and think about what you could have done more, but you can’t regret things. It was a chance for me to look back and be able to mature and analyze a lot of things in my life.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports)
There are plenty of people out there willing to write UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman’s win over divisional great Anderson Silva as a stroke of luck based on the Brazilian’s decision to drop his hands as a means of enticing the current title-holder to engage while standing. However, Silva isn’t one of them. The 38-year old legend recently spoke to UFC.com in lieu of locking horns with Weidman again tomorrow night at UFC 168 where he showed nothing but respect for the current 185-pound king while also going into the sense of relief he’s felt without the title in tow and how he’ll be approaching action in the rematch.
