This Saturday, Anderson Silva will compete for what could be the last time in his illustrious career Silva faces Uriah Hall in the main event of UFC Vegas 12 and then, it is believed that Silva, 45, will leave the UFC, and maybe sport in general Before what could be the end of one of the most important careers in MMA history, there was a wave of memories from other fighters and now Silva’s greatest nemesis has joined in. to him

Chris Weidman was the man who ultimately ended Silva’s record-breaking UFC run, knocking out “The Spider” to claim the UFC 162 middleweight title This remains one of the most successful wins. most amazing in MMA history, and when the pair faced off five months later at UFC 168, Weidman raised his hand again, shattering Silva’s shin as he checked for a kick Speaking to Submission Radio recently, Weidman addressed his history with Silva, ahead of the great’s impending retirement, and noted the complicated relationship he had with Anderson.

“One of the good times, I remember him, we did this huge signing after the first fight before the second in New York,” Weidman said “The lines were wrapped around the building a few times, it was just crazy And I had my son CJ, who’s here, and he was with me, and he could’ve been, well, I guess, a Yeah, because it’s 2013 and Anderson Silva came to my table, we were talking, I think my dad could have been there, my wife and my son and him I’m pretty sure he took a picture with him « 

« Some of the negative memories other than the fights, but some of the behind the scenes stuff is one that Longo can’t stand it Matt (Serra) and they all witnessed it, but before my first fight with him in backstage to go to the weigh-ins, I was getting ready to go out, and Longo, he was sitting somewhere He was supposed to be next to me, cause you and a cornermen are supposed to be getting ready to go out for the weigh-ins And Longo was sitting somewhere so I was alone on the line And apparently he (Anderson) came up behind me and started to laugh at me and dance behind me with his whole team He had about 15 guys, 15 Brazilians, and I was alone, and I didn’t really realize it, but apparently they and Matt and Ray had all noticed and they were like, ‘Yo, F that guy, yeah, tomorrow you’re gonna put him in his place’ So I just thought it was a dirt move and a bully maneuver to do that behind me But whatever, I fought it twice « 

Weidman’s victories over Silva irrevocably changed the career of the all-time greats Since losing the belt, Silva’s career has seen a noticeable decline He has failed multiple drug tests for substances banned and went from 1 to 5 with 1 no dispute over the next seven years And unfortunately Weidman thinks things will continue to slide for Silva this weekend

« He’s had an amazing career, and I mean he didn’t look bad in his last few fights, » Wediman said of Silva’s chances against Uriah Hall « He had a close fight with Israel Adesanya If I was to put all my money on who wins this fight I think Uriah Hall has more interest in winning than Anderson Silva I think Anderson Silva wants to put on a show and do something awesome and fight , and I think Uriah Hall has an interest in that as well, but I think he would love to win over Anderson Silva »

The punters agree, setting up Hall as a clear favorite in the bout.But that’s what they’re fighting for, and this Saturday Anderson Silva will have one more chance to step back and present a vintage « Spider » performance
