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.
Do Canadians say arse? Learn something new everyday.

So, someone not involved in our discussion, came in, negged me, and didn't leave any opinions or comments on the thread itself? Man the internet is so fuking gay sometimes. Sorry about it anyways. You're the only guy I was talking to, and I thought it was the general "Oh, you disagree? NEGGGGGGGGGGG!" thing that seems to have happened whenever I am not with the common consensus.

Anyways, what's your opinion on the match up schedule I recommended?

That's a big assumption, Tim could just as easily walk out with the win.

He has that kind of power and I don't think he's a easy win for anyone in the division not named Anderson Silva.

lol, now I feel badly for leaving you a retaliatory neg. rep. And yes, people leave red without rhyme or reason all of the time. Welcome to the internet

I didn't mind your schedule. Though I still don't think that Weidman is going to be awarded a title shot if/when he dispatches Boetsch. As I said previously, it's no secret that Dana loves Bisping and has been trying to set him up for a title fight, and if both win their upcoming fights, I could see the UFC scheduling Weidman vs. Bisping for the new year.

Hopefully Weidman loses as I'm tired of him talking and challenging. If he wins again though, then I really want to see him against a top MW (if there are any left besides Silva).

Boetsch is almost in a Jon Fitch position, where he's getting good fights because he keeps winning, but you know Dana White doesn't want him to win.

He's not EASY, but I think if Weidman goes in there and sticks to his gameplay, he's going to take the fight without really having any tests.

That's my main issue. Weidman isn't being tested. It's not even that he's steamrolling, because on paper the tests aren't there. Sure, Boetsch could clip him and knock him out, but putting everything down to the KO punch is just by chance. Boetsch doesnt really have any gameplan or strategy which will win this one for him. I want to see Weidman get someone who has plans of their own. Stann would go head to head with wrestling, Bisping would use his stand up and grappling etc. It just gets to me that he's getting the easy route when all around him are fights that he has to work for.

If this is the case, I'm completely for it. Even if Stann wins I want to see that happening (EDIT: THAT being Stann Vs Weidman). It's more the bandwagoning that's getting to me. I'd route for Weidman against anyone except Bisping and Silva really. I don't think that Dana would really be doing anything unjust. Bisping certainly needs something else after the Sonnen loss, and Weidman will need a win over a 'legit' contender before he gets the title shot himself.

That's why I'm so happy about the possibility of GSP/Silva. It sorts so much stuff out. Having anyone fight Silva in the new year is premature imo. Everyone is one big name win away from a title shot really. Bisping/Stann are two wins so one after their fight. If Boetsch beat Weidman, it'd be hard to deny the upset king a title shot.

Its not like the Rep system matters, you know the Rep system has been jacked forever and ppl don't put a lot of merit into it.

For anyone new or worried about Rep its basically there as a second messaging system, not a ton of functionality don't sweat negs too much.

Don't pretend you don't feel all warm and fussy inside to see a rep

I'm more annoyed to think someone negs and doesnt comment. This is a fuking forum, wether you think Weidman is a god or GSP's shorts should be tighter, you may aswell say it because thats what you signed up to do.
