Anderson Silva weeps on Brazilian TV when asked about throwing Weidman fight at UFC 162

Former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva can hardly hold back his emotions as he denies allegations that he threw his UFC 162 title fight with Chris Weidman.

Former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva lost a shocking KO upset to Chris Weidman at UFC 162. Since Silva got KTFO'd while mugging and mocking his opponent, many fans have insisted that there was some kind of conspiracy or that Silva was throwing the fight sub-consciously or even consciously.

Not surprisingly Anderson Silva doesn't care for such talk. He went on Brazilian TV and responded passionately to the allegations.

Here's a translation of Silva's comments (from YouTube):

I get a little upset because when I go to fight I get to represent my country. Represent all Brazilians outside of Brazil and inside Brazil. This upset me a lot, people think I sold the fight. I always said that this is a title Brazilian independent being with me or another Brazilian. I always say I do not like to fight because Brazil is a world title if another Brazilian to win this title I'll keep rooting for this title continues in Brazil.
