I don't think Weidman understands what he's in for.

I think he has a good chance to beat Silva and although teh kingsmasher agreed with me I still stand by it. Weidman is a beast. I don't see anyone else in the Middleweight division who has as much of a chance to beat Silva as Weidman does. Book the fight, I want to see it badly.

Should've been bisping. Weidman its in a world of shit. He's gonna get an angry Silva for opening his mouth. He is going to get lit up like a Christmas tree. most likely in the 2nd or 3rd rd. He'll gas going for take downs then the ass beating will began.


I would rather see Cung Le vs Anderson Silva. Makes more sense to me.

Weidman is Clearly the number 1 contender.

With wins over Alessio Sakara, Tom lawlor and Mark Munoz there is no question that he is the number contender !!!

Go Weidman ...


I actually wanna see this fight. When Weidman gets smashed to bits, the Weidman hype train will come to an abrupt halt !!!

With wins over Alessio Sakara(who hasn't beat him?), Tom lawlor(gate keeper to the top 20) and Mark Munoz(injured coming off a extremely long layoff) there is no question that he is the number contender !!!

Go Weidman ...




1 amazing KO of Rich Franklin> All those wins

I dont think Wiedman has a chance, he'll get ko'd early. I think Chael is a better mma wrestler than Chris and he couldn't get the job done.

I couldn't disagree with that more but it would be useless for me to argue about that with a guy named SpiderSilva so I won't.

IMO Weidman deserves the fight and I want to see it.

KOing Leben at that time is more impressive than Munoz. One takes a hit horrible and one's a zombie.

hector lombard would beat silva if he actually came to fight.

I agree with the new guy...just give him the fight already to end the B.S.
Line up Le and Lombard afterwards because we all know I will never get to see him fight Jones or GSP!

So beating a well past his prime Franklin is better than beating Munoz and Maia in their primes? Rich hasn't beaten a guy relavant in years. He hasnt fought anyone close to the title picture since 2009! People need to learn to understand the difference between real contenders and what I like to call the "senior circuit." Franklin has been fighting has been names for years- Liddell, Wanderlei, Forrest (not old but a shell of his former self and no longer a title contender) and Le. But these guys are past their primes and will no longer hang with the elite younger guys. Consider the fact that Wanderlei was almost shut down and forced into retirement by Dana because he was finished. Dana said the same of Chuck. Le lost to a guy in Wanderlei who has been done for a coupel years now. That doesnt say much for him.


Maia (although old, is a late bloomer and is at the top of his game) and Munoz on the other hand are just in their MMA primes. Some guys like Maia, Hendo, Couture, Sonnen fight well into their late years and do well, but guys like Wanderlei, Liddell, Franklin, Forrest, and Le lost it in their mid to lte 30s and havent been contenders for years.

I personally think we are about to see a changing of the guard in the UFC like we did a few years back when all the big stars took a back seat to a new generation. I think guys like Weidman and Hendricks are primed for stardom and all they have to do is get their chances. We have already seen the change in LHW as Bones has taken over, and I suspect we are about to see some new names come up and take out GSP and Anderson as well. It is ust the nature of the beast. People cant be the man forever.

Chael is notorius for fighting stupid. Watch his second Filho fight as his corner is all but begging him to stay standing and he keeps taking the fight down. Chael may be the best MMA wrestler in MMA history, for sure at 185, and no one is as good as him at getting a TD. However that doesn't mean that Weidman cant get Anderson down. We've seen the likes of Lutter get Silva down, so Im confident Weidman can get some TDs. I think Weidmans youth and the match up give him a damn good shot a beating Anderson. IMO the best shot anyone has had outside of Marquadt and Hendo.

What makes this fight interesting to me is the youth difference. When Marquadt and Hendo fought him they were on equal level in terms of being in their prime. I think Anderson isnt physically what he once was, and I think a young guy like Weidman is ready to take advantage of it.

I also think Anderson and his team know it too and thats why the Weidman fight has been held off like it has.
