Because he's getting older and no matter who you are age beats everyone. Silva will be no different, when his speed goes he will go.

Weidman is bigger, stronger and more well versed in BJJ than Sonnen. If Weidman is aggressive than what is stopping him? His performance against Maia is the key, the fight sucked yes but on 11 days he cut a tremendous amount of weight and pushed through.

That's the sign of a man who wants it and is willing to dig deep to get it. No one can hang with Anderson standing up but if this thing hits the mat he's gonna be in trouble. Weidman will hunt for the finish too, that may ultimately lead to his downfall because Anderson only needs one but Weidman is a serious threat.
