Everybody always wants the top dawg. Serra is the prime example. He beat GSP by going for broke. Now look at his career trajectory after that. Serra loses in the rematch, loses to Hughes which I actually bet Serra to win on, loses to Lytle and that's a wrap. He may have won the belt temporarily, but he lost to much lower ranked fighters in the division before and after the fact.
If Weidman is the true contender and future champ then take out another top fighter then he deserves it. Then we got ourselves a title fight!
