Although I agree that knocking Weidman for his wins is dumb. You obviously have to take into consideration the time it was. You can't compare 2005 to now. Nate Quarry would have been a big win then. Back then they did a card every few months. Now they do one every week. There were far fewer fighters. Rankings and win streaks were rare. Can't compare the 2.
