There you have it folks.

What to expect after this fight is over.

Weidman to be initially in a state of shock and then to come to the conclusion that Silva got the best of him this night but he will come back and beat him before the spider retires.
Sonnen to comment "That wasn't the game plan I gave him." etc

I classify this phenomenon as The Wrestler's Folly.
Simply stated that because Anderson isn't a wrestler he should lose to a wrestler eventually.

Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen, and shortly Chris Weidman will all want to fight Silva again and then simply dismiss their loss as them not securing enough take downs to win the fight and that if given another opportunity they will win a decision. Regardless of the fact that Silva has finished the former two UFC fighters, people will say "SEE, he can't stop the take down. GSP will blanket him and Jones will devour him and he will lose both super fights" BUT he keeps on winning and people cling on to The Wrestler's Folly.

Just keep winning Silva and let the hate flow through them.
