Weidman beat Silva for the second time...
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman appeared on the Fox Sports 1 post-fight show for UFC 168 and talked about his main event win over Anderson Silva on the card. The fight was stopped in the second round after Silva broke his leg when he threw a kick that Weidman checked. Below are some highlights.
Weidman on the check of the leg kick: "Ray Longo broke someone's leg in the gym like that. I've been working on getting the knee on the shin to stop the leg kicks. It's one of those things, you want to make them pay for it, but you don't want to break it."
Weidman on how he felt in the Octagon: "I felt good out there. There was nothing he was going to do to surprise me. I had a lot of tools over him."
Weidman on a knee injury he has: "It's probably a torn meniscus or some cartilage. I felt great in the fight. I'm not making any excuses. But I've got to go see some doctors to check it out. I might have to get it scoped, but I'm ready to get in there."
