It was the trendy thing to do.  Pick Chris Weidman for the upset win over the G.O.A.T., Anderson Silva.  It all went down in the weirdest way possible and Silva’s style backfired on him.  Now, he will be looking for redemption on December 28th.  Here is the transcript from ESPN and S/O to MiddleEasy for the scoop.

Getting knocked out is the worst. There are always going to be questions — people want to know what happened, but [when you’re knocked out] you don’t remember anything. You black out and that’s it.

It [the awkward movement] was a technical error to keep my legs parallel; I should have taken a step back instead.

Several factors led to the knockout. The tension in the air before the fight, you just want to burst … it was a series of mistakes.

In my career, I’ve always went back to my corner [for advice]. Against Weidman, I went back to argue, and I should have gone back to my corner and calmed down. I didn’t do any of that; I lost control.
