Weidman is winning, but he's not fighting greater competition? Infact, he's fighting the second most overrated fighter at MW (after himself). Is that the best selling point of this fight? Until he beats someone who could legitimatley make a claim for the title, I don't see why anyone would consider Weidman to be the best contender. He might be beating guys who are high on the ranks, but until he beats someone that might pose some sort of challenge on paper and is a top ranked guy, I don't see why. I think Michael Bisping gives him a hell of a fight, as he's a good stand up fighter and managed to hold off Sonnen's masterclace of wrestling.
