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?
I was going for an exagurated "Not in the same league" thing haha.
Lombard was horrible in his last fight. But regardless of what I think of Weidman, beating Lombard when he's on his game is a massive achievement and directly warrents a title shot.
Franklin is still a contender. I obv think Weidman would beat him but it's a legit guy to get a win over. I agree though, would mimick Forrest/Franklin.
I couldn't give a fuk who Weidman beat in NDAA or NCAA or amatuer wrestling or whatever. Did he take many punches to the face during that fight? This is MMA. Pretty sure Stann clowns Anderson Silva in a wrestling match.
Bisping is still a very good fighter. He can strike with anyone really, and he showed a much better wrestling and grappling game than Anderson did against Sonnen.
Belfort beats anyone else at MW b/s AS
You're getting me wrong. I didn't say that Weidman doesn't win these fights. I just think that he's never beat anyone with any massive relevence. All of these guys would bring forward legitimate title contender wins.
Man, Weidman has some serious dickriders if people are willing to step on Belfort to get him over. How about he has more impressive fights before people start sucking him off.
