Weidman is a contender, no doubt, but so are the other names I mentioned. None of them deserve a title shot, they have to get big wins Vs each other.
My main issue is "He's AS's biggest test" or "He has a great chance to win". Weidman isn't even in the same sport as Chael Sonnen and I think he gets KTFO by Belfort and Hendo.
Michael Bisping/Brian Stann
If Weidman gets a win over any of them, he is worthy of a title shot imo.
What? They're not in MMA?
Hector Lombard? The same Hector Lombard who just threw a dud in his debut? Tim Boestch would be a much better fight, considering you know...he beat Lombard.
Rich Franklin? Washed up, not a contender anymore, it would look like a repeat of Griffin/Franklin.
Stann? I'm guessing you obviously haven't followed Weidman's career, well let me educate you, as a purple belt at the 2009 ADCC this guy went to points with Andre Galvao. I'm pretty sure he'd have no problem handling Stann on the ground, if Chael can sub him, you best believe Weidman can.
And Bisping? Well, this guy's never done anything ever to warrant a top ten ranking or title discussion. Same with Alan Belcher, just because he beat the grossly overrated Rousimar Palhares doesn't mean he's a contender. Palhares has always sucked.
And Vitor Belfort....whose he beat again at 185?
