That was great performance from him considering the level of his opponent and the age difference.

Maybe it's because he's only taken one career KO? IIRC the Wiedman KO was a double-left jab, and Silva was really just jarred because his body was so out of position.

I can't remember him eating any overhand right bombs. The flying knee Weidman took from Romero is probably more DPS that Silva's whole career.


hahah

genetics is probably important too. Fedor ate two hard shots in his entire career before he retired . the h-bomb which was a ground scramble, and that haymaker Fujita hit him with in PRIDE. yet post comeback Fedor gets dropped by a strong breeze, he must have been drinking a ton during his retirement or genetically he's not a very good TANK.

I hear the degeneration argument all the time, that the new blood is simply just not as good as the old. Anderson looked good last night, he was certainly underestimated going in. But is it that the youth are weaker, or the vets are just staying game longer? Idesyana is a good fighter, no question. I think it's more the latter. Humans are just not aging and degenerating as quickly.
