I'd give it to Weidman, he has a fairly significant size advantage and he's young enough to use it. I also think his chokes are top of the line and someone is going to land an head/arm choke on Silva.

Mark Munoz
My favorite fighter. Always has been.
This Mark trained Anderson in wrestling at one point and is probably part of the reason he stuffed Sonnen's takedown attempts in the second rd. so well. He not only worked the ground game but striking with Andy. Hell Anderson considers them friends and doesn't understand why Mark wants to fight him.

Weidman is extremely underrated but I think too green for a shot at the title-ala Nate Quarry. He is working with Serra/Longo so give him a couple of years and he will a top 5 MW. Mark is ahead of him in to many facets of the game and should beat him tonight.

Im hoping weidmans performance against maia was just due to a bad weight cut because i was very impressed with him since his debut, icactually made a thread about him after his debut saying hes a future champ

I think this is a very tough fight but i think weidman takes it, though he would lose to AS but i do think that by the end of next year he has a great shot, he really learns things at JBJ speed...

I think munoz would put up less of a fight, he has said that its hard for him to take anderson down in training and his control on the ground is pretty poor, also his chin isnt that good...i think hes a tough fight for any1 though except AS, id be surprised if he out wrestles weidman

I think Chris taking the Maia fight on 11 days notice supports that theory. How can you say Mark's chin isn't good? He lost one fight by KO from a head kick that would KO just about anybody. Wrestling wise I think they are even but his Mark's heavy hands that I think will be a problem problem for Weidman.

This^^, i dont think his chin is bad, ita just not that solid, but he recovers well....stIll AS can KO any chin and i think munoz has showed his isnt great so im guessing AS would KO him pretty easily after a few scrambles

I say Munoz has a better chance. He has more experience, insane power in his hands, and has trained with Silva.

That said I think both have a very slim chance at all.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

I'm thinking Munoz stands a better shot, but let's be frank, I think he'd be dominated by Silva too.

vBookie Record: 16-9

This.


Of the two I'd say Munoz though just because he has the kind of ridiculous power that could catch a going on 38 year old man.
