Apparently he had the flu coming in, he did an interview with Karyn and mentioned that Chicago was very cold so that probably had something to do with his performance. He certainly should have fared a lot better than he did last night. I'm a big fan of Weidman but if Maia wasn't sick there was no excuse for how bad his stand up looked last night against a guy whose 7-0 with rudimentary striking at best.

I don't think he's ever been the same since the Marquardt fight in all honesty, he got creamed in quick fashion and then he went on and had very, very little to offer Anderson and a title shot might as well be a fantasy for him with Anderson at the top of the division.
