Back at UFC162, Chris Weidman did what almost all the pundits and the bookies thought he couldn’t – he took Anderson Silva’s belt from him. And he didn’t just win the fight, he took Knockout of the Night honours for a second-round finish that sent shockwaves through not just the Middleweight division, but through the whole of the UFC. It was the end of a 17-fight winning streak for Silva, and Weidmanremains the only man to have knocked out Anderson Silva. Weidman, on the other hand, goes into the rematch still undefeated, and he will be carrying a huge psychological advantage into the bout, too.

But Weidman is still the underdog in the run-up to his second fight against Silva, with bookies offering $2.23 for him to make it two wins from two meetings. Why? Silva’s reputation. There have been very few better-regarded champions than Anderson Silva, and the man’s record speaks for itself. There was an incredible amount of analysis after Weidman stopped Silva, and a lot of it explained the defeat in terms of over-confidence or tactical mistakes by Silva. There was a real feeling in some quarters that Silva had lost the title, instead of Weidman winning it. We think that sounds odd, looking at Weidman and his incredibly dynamic, aggressive and technically sound game. If you show-boat against a guy like Weidman, you have to accept that you’ll get knocked out.

We’ll be revisiting this fight (because we’re excited about it) in more detail next week, but in the meantime you can see how the betting stands at Sportsbet right now by following the link, and you can decide for yourself if we’ll see a resurgent Anderson Silva on the 29th, or if it will be Chris Weidman putting the speculation to bed for good...
