We can’t remember Anderson Silva ever releasing a video blog around a fight but thank goodness he decided to do so for UFC 162. This past Saturday, of course, Silva was upset by Chris Weidman in dramatic fashion.
The above video blog released today by the Silva camp offers a glimpse at some intimate, painful, and sometimes touching moments with the former champion. Then, there’s Anderson getting a sit-down speech from Usher after the fight, in which the pop-star — and Silva’s Black House training partner?? — offers his own criticism of the Spider’s performance. That part is just surreal and hilarious.
Other highlights include: Anderson acting anything but aloof with fans as he exits the arena in Las Vegas after losing his title to Weidman, and a composed Silva giving credit to Weidman at the post-event press conference, then breaking down and crying in a hotel room afterwards only to then lead an inspiring cheer-circle with his friends, family and teammates. It’s a level of access we’ve rarely seen before with Silva, so check it out.
