It looks like Chris Weidman will get the next middleweight title shot against Anderson Silva. According to a report from Tatame magazine, a Silva vs. Weidman title fight is in the works for a July 6th PPV.Link
BOOK IT! Let Anderson put all this Weidman talk to rest. Spider finishes it within the first two rounds.
its about time. while i hope weidman whoops that ass i just cant see the trend changing
glad i am going to this event for a main event instead of cain vs bigfoot
I think Wiedman is really the only MW with a shot to beat him right now. I have no idea who I'm going to pick for this. Weidman is a phenom, and Anderson is due. Still, it's Anderson.
The worst question for the UFC if Anderson wins is then what for MW.
Would have like Weidman to get one more fight but He is the best logical choice right now and has shown quite a bit of potential to possibly dethrone the champ. It's just hard to picture anyone at MW beating Anderson.
is it unreasonable to think that if
A. GSP beats Diaz
B. Condit beats Hendricks
C. Silva beats Weidman
we would get GSP/Silva?
im never going to get my hopes up on the matchup, but the possibilities seem closer than before.
Anderson at anything under -250 is going to be criminal.
id whoop both of em. at the same time or back to back
This is one of those "becareful what you wish for, because you just might get it" situations. I like Weidman. The kid has got some serious game. I just hope he realizes that A) if he loses, he probably isn't getting another title shot until Anderson Silva retires, and B) if he wins, Anderson Silva will likely get an automatic rematch if he wants it.
Chris Weidman should write a thank you card to Lil Nog.
Andy will find a way to pullout... says the ghost of tehkingsman
Andy will most likely murder him in the most embarrassing possible fashion. Weedman is a very gifted fighter but I don't think even he believes he could beat Andy. When they interviewed him after he beat Munoz they asked if he could beat Andy his response was more or less: 'sure. Why not? I can wrestle'.
