Matches That Anderson Silva Lost
Former UFC Middleweight Champion and one of the greatest MMA fighters to ever enter the sport has rarely suffered losses. However, nonetheless Anderson Silva has lost a few matches throughout his MMA career. Most of the world has forgotten who he is lost to, so we will remind you of some of the other matches that Silva has lost throughout his Mixed Martial Arts career.
It is worth noting that just because Silva has lost a few matches throughout his career, it does nothing to diminish what he has accomplished during his time as an MMA fighter.
Now read on to find out which matches Anderson Silva has lost, starting with his most recent loss.
Anderson Silva's Loss At UFC 168
Silva's most recent loss is also his most vicious loss! He suffered a broken leg at the hands, or should we say leg, of UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman. The injury occurred in the second round when Silva went in for a kick, but Weidman checked it, which caused Silva's leg to break. Out of all the matches Anderson Silva has lost, this one will be the most memorable loss due to the way the fight ended. At the time of this writing, Silva has not mentioned fighting again, nor has he mentioned anything about wanting another match against Weidman.
Anderson Silva's Loss At UFC 162
Silva not only suffered a loss to Weidman once, but he did it twice. The first time was at UFC 162. Silva managed to last two rounds with the now Middleweight Champion, and he made a dangerous mistake at UFC 162. That mistake was not respecting the power that Weidman possesses, especially his punching power. Out of all the matches that Anderson Silva has lost, this one will have to go down as the most ridiculous loss. In the middle of the fight Silva pretended to be injured and then he really did get hurt. Silva's clowning around ultimately cost him the UFC Middleweight Championship.
Rumble On The Rock 8: Silva vs Okami
Anderson Silva's Loss At Rumble On The Rock 8
Rumble On The Rock 8 was held in Hawaii in January of 2006. Silva stepped into the ring with a fighter known as Yushin Okami. Okami defeated Silva in the first round and in under three minutes. It is worth pointing out that Okami did not defeat Silva via his own means. Silva actually got himself disqualified after he attempted to throw an illegal upkick. Five years later and the two met up again, but this time Silva even up the score by winning via TKO in the second round. When it comes to matches that Anderson Silva lost, this one is the only one that he lost due to being disqualified.
