UFC 168    December 28, 2013
Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman
Ed Mulholland for ESPN


Everything has changed -- and yet, nothing has. When it comes to predicting this second fight, I more or less have the same feelings I had going into the first. Chris Weidman took Anderson Silva down within 30 seconds first time they fought. Great sign for him -- and he had relative success beating Silva up on the floor. At the same time, Silva got back to his feet and started to do his thing, only without throwing any punches. Had he actually thrown punches, I think it would have been a completely different fight. Silva is better on the feet, Weidman is better on the ground and we don't know how crazy or how sane Silva is going to act once it all starts.
