Well, who honestly knows at this point. Anderson looks like he could fight for quite a few more years if he actually wanted to. But Weidman is already scary good and is only going to get better and better. IMO he posses the blueprint skillset for beating Anderson, while Anderson may be the best mixed martial artist on the planet, he's not immortal.

Oh yeah, for sure. Im just speculating, as are we all. Nobody can truly say how it would go down until the time it actually happens.


P.S, I have Bisping beating Weidman if they fought right now.

Well, on THAT subject we'll have to disagree

Silva, Sonnen, Weidman, Okami, Rockhold, Lombard, Boetsch, and Belcher all beat Bisping. Not trying to diss Bisping, just my honest opinion.

Weidman is already 28 years old going on 29 and has a history of knee injuries. It's not like this guy has a Jon Jones type of development period ahead of him.

Funny thing is I used to like and laud Weidman before he was well known name and everyone was busy "mehing" him when he threw around Sakara on short notice and the bandwagoners came on claiming he would sub Silva with his purple belt and his two submission wins over world class opposition in Jesse Bongfeltd and Tom Lawlor

Then this forum made me sick of the guy. I think I just need to stop going on forums as much

Weidman isn't as good in all areas but he has enough in each area that he can out it together better. I'm a supporter of Weidman vs Anderson I haven't ever said he would destroy Anderson or even beat him. I have only said he's the match up I want to see the most at mw.

He's a pretty good all rounder, but to me he's a jack of all trades. If Anderson can deal with the takedowns of Chael, he won't have that many issues dealing with Weidman's. If Anderson can deal with the striking of Hendo and Belfort, he won't have that many issues dealing with Weidman's. I feel like I'm missing a whole load of Weidman's fights or something. To me, he routinely beat some low level fighters, apparently did terrible in beating Maia, and then performed really good in beating a contender (all be it a weak one) in Munoz. He showed some good skills and all, but I wouldn't even have the guy on my radar tbh. The guys in my sig have more potential than Weidman imo. Weidman to me would get KOed in the first 3 rounds by Anderson and then struggle to get another shot. Feels like I'm seeing a different guy from everyone else.

Fair enough, i would say that Bisping beats Okami, Boetsch without a doubt.
Unsure about Lombard and Weidman.
Belcher would lose going on his last performance, and that hurts saying that as i am a fan.
Silva yep nuff said.
I would love to see a Rockhold matchup that would be a great fight.

I think he takes Belcher and Boestsch quite handily tbh. Belcher looked so bad in his last fight. Ring rust maybe? Who knows how he'll look if he fights again soon.

Weidman/Bisping would be an amazing fight I think, with either one getting a close decision win.

Fully expect Vitor to knock him out (regardless, I bet on Bisping anyways. Always prefer betting the underdog) and Silva would just embarrass him.

It had nothing to do with ring rust, Okami had become criminally underrated and Belcher had become criminally overrated for beating up Palhares. Anderson, Weidman, Vitor, and Okami are clearly the four best Middleweights in the world.

Didnt mean I thought he lost due to ring rust but that it might of had an effect on his performance. I'd still take Okami any day and don't think it impacted the decision in any way. But all that time off was bound to be a factor in some way.
