Whatever happens I hope Weidman puts up a good fight. I loves me some Silva and at this stage in his career he needs tough fights that carry weight. He may well be the GOAT right now, but he knows full well he might lose that title unless he has tough fights to close out his career.
Weidman is a tough fight. Or at the very least, the toughest fight for Silva at MW right now.
If Silva does the expected and knocks Chris the feck out in round one? Well... that means nothing more then further proof that Silva is a very very special fighter. Its a shame Weidman didnt start earlier. 9 fights is awfully green. Especially going up against a fighter who has seen it all. Hes 28 ( 29? ). If he was at his current level at 25, he could have had over a decade at the very top.
Yea I agree. If Anderson wins it will most likely be an early KO. And I'm afraid if that happens people will discredit the win as just a win over a GREEN fighter.
