Gus has a more legit record than weidman. Neither have beaten top level guys but Gus has beaten more mid level fighters by far. Weidman beat the overhyped mark Munoz who was coming off a long layoff and surgery that's it.
I think they are both very good prospects but neither is ready for the champ.

I agree that munoz wasnt in the best shape possible but hes a top 5 MW and weidman made him look like an amature, it was very impressive, and i think maia is a tough fight for anyone and the kid beat him on 11 days notice, and just the way he has destroyed every1 else is impressive, his skills on paper are really good, hell i think he could beat gustaf
Gustaf is tall and thats pretty much it, i see potential in him but he has a looong way to go, weak wrestling, very overrated striking, doesnt know how to use his size that well, and nothing special on the ground...average at best, while weidman seems like a bjj prodigy
I have more faith in phil davis than gustaf
