It's a complete mismatch imo. Even Franklin would have been a tougher match than this, and it'd have just been Griffin x2.
We get it, you don't like Weidman, join the club it's called "Anderson Silva's fans" and enough with this non-sense about Boestch, he beat Lombard and more importantly he beat Yushin Okami when he was ranked number three in the world.

This is a good fight between two top five middleweights and the true number 1 and 2 contenders at 185. I'm going with Weidman by sub but you can never count out Boestch.

Why would an Anderson Silva fan dislike Weidman?

The two people I am sick of hearing about are Weidman and Gus, because both are getting skyrocketed into title shots they don't really deserve.

Weidman is a great fighter and might well be the best at the weight, maybe he can beat AS, who knows...but one thing is for sure and it's that Munoz and Boetsch are NOT top tier fighters. Vitor Belfort knocks both of them out in the first round imo. Bisping beats both aswell imo. I don't like having someone put into such a high spot when they haven't earned it. I don't even know where it's coming from. Weidman has been impressive in ONE fight. Beating a bunch of nobodies with alright performances, having a terrible fight against Maia and beating a terrible looking Munoz is literally ALL Weidman has done.

I also don't get why Weidman has the "best style to beat Anderson Silva". I class Sonnen as the UFC's best takedown artist, and he can keep people on the ground better than anyone else too. Weidman doesn't have as good takedowns to me, so he will have to set them up. This means either standing or clinching with Silva, which means he's getting knocked out quite quickly.

I don't dislike Weidman. He's an alright fighter, has never been tested and hasn't faught against someone who IS a test. If he beats someone who is a legit contender (And not someone who beat Okami lol and beat Lombard's shadow).

Belcher is medically cleared before Weidman and Boetsche fight. A training camp is what? 8 weeks or something. Belcher Vs Weidman in January = Weidman's proving ground.

Anderson Silva, labelled by many as the greatest fighter ever, was given a title shot after winning one fight in the UFC - against Chris Leben.

It happens.

Just thought you should know that it wasn't me who gave you negative rep, but thanks anyway for giving me red for no reason whatsoever. You're a classy guy.

So, is it ALL MMA math with you or what? Should I break out my funkasaurus acc again and Cody McKenzie shit up?

Belcher is a bigger threat than Boetsch. Forget past opponents, forget who beat who etc.

The real reason you here so much about them is because there really isn't anyone else left to challenge AS that should put up a good challenge and they are winning fights.

Tim's wins are legitimate, don't be bias, beating him should propel you forward.

Belcher is a solid fighter but not the big threat you're saying he is at least NIMO anyway.

Here's the thing about being gold. I can see who leaves me rep, smart guy. What would make you think I'd give you negative rep when we were having a halfway intelligent discussion where neither of us was flaming one another? You're clearly not very observant.

I am, however, going to neg. rep you now (a) to prove that it wasn't I who left the earlier rep, and (b) because you're clearly an arse.

That's maybe the reason.

And yeah they are legitimate and I have no reason to be biased against him. But Weidman has all this hype based on the Munoz win. Alright, whatever, Dana is going to give him another fight and THIS one should prove that he's a contender...Tim...WHAT? I said a few days ago that I knew this fight would be made. Out of every single contender, Tim is by a mile the easiest. Belcher called out Weidman, Bisping/Stann could easily fight him, if Vitor loses he could easily fight him etc. But no, like with Munoz, he's getting the worst "top ranked fighter" which pushes him forward even though he had won the fight before he stepped in the cage. He has some problems with everyone else (win or lose) that he will have to work out, but with Boestch he walks in and walks out with the W.
