This is the first staredown between Silva and Weidman.

Who looks nervous? Anyone? Both? Neither? Why does Anderson have so much hespect for Weidman? Maybe it’s because he hespects all fighters, that’s why Anderson let Weidman even touch the belt.

This was the first time the two middleweights faced off, and Silva looked like his usual self, while Weidman looked, calm, but still in the biggest athletic event in his life. It has to be getting him nervous. It has to.
