I really don't get how some people think he's gonna win. It's not like he's been on a tear like JBJ was when he got a shot. Plus JBJ was fighting Shogun, who is good, but he's not the GOAT.
I'll be betting on a first round TKO from Silva come the time. Weidman is just so inexperienced, imo a victory over a fat Munoz and an out of sorts Maia does warrant a shot at the gold.
