Had Rashad Evans beaten Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156 this past February, it appears that he would have been making a division change and going after Anderson Silva. Instead, it's Chris Weidman.

All of a sudden I was in New York and Lorenzo was like, Anderson Silva is going to beat your ass on July 6th.

Good. All this BS with instant title shots for fighters new to a division is ruining the legitimacy of championship bouts.

And Weidman is a better fighter, anyway.

They sure are determined to screw rightful challengers in the name of money. They need to plan for the future a little bit.
