I have been saying this ever since Weidman first appeared, he was the one to beat Silva because he just did not give a damn about fame, money or mythical beings.

Silva only beat a lot of other fighters because the idea of Silva was more frightening than the actuality of it. Sonnen would have won had his submission defense been more prepared, Henderson would have won had he kept it wrestling and Lutter was doing a fine job until illegal elbows.

Fact is, Silva has always been beatable even before the Weidman fight, it's just Weidman is younger and more knowledgable in all areas than the others and did not make any mistakes.
