Why should Andy be in a rush to fight Weidman now? Weidman maybe the biggest prospect at 185 at the moment, but he has ONE decent win. ONE. When a guy is 16-0 in the UFC with 10 title defenses, why should he rush to fight THAT guy?
Yes Weidman vs Silva is a fight I want to see, but does it really matter if he actually has to beat a couple top contenders first?
The same people rushing for Weidman are the same ones laughing at Hendricks for getting passed over. Shocking.
what on earth does he have to gain by waiting? he won't be able to outstrike him by waiting and his grappling is already good enough as it is, having more fights just gives anderson more tape on weidman to study and capitalize on it, and then theres the fact that silva fights 2 times a year and there is no one worthy of fighting at mw right now outside of weidman.
