Chris Weidman on Michael Bisping: I think Anderson would kill him.

"Belfort is very strong and has great knockout power. Bisping has a chance, depending on how far the fight goes. In the first two rounds he can be knocked out by Belfort, but if the fight goes over the first two rounds I think Bisping can take the points. I do not think [Bisping and I] will fight (laughs). I think Anderson would kill him. Bisping has a chance against anyone and can stop any fighter, but Anderson is just 'the guy'." - Chris Weidman via Tatame

Top ranked UFC middleweight Chris Weidman breaks down the main event bout for UFC on FX 7 between Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping.

With a shot at the title on the line for Bisping, tensions have been high as both fighters nearly came to blows yesterday during a pre-fight press conference for the event.

Today at the weight-ins, once again, tensions ran high, but both fighters kept their distance and while shouting at each other.

Bisping brings into the fight an impressive 5-1 record in his past six bouts with his lone defeat coming via a close split-decision loss to Chael Sonnen.

His opponent, Belfort, is 3-1 is a middleweight since returning to the UFC in 2009. All three of his victories have come via first round stoppages, and his lone defeat as a middleweight was to champion Anderson Silva.

Weidman's gettin' ready to sell that Silva fight.

This is one of the few times where I don't mind losing my bets cuz the way I see it I win if Bisping gets to fight Anderson. Who wouldn't want to see that fight. We get to see some obscure technique being implemented at the highest levels on a game fighter, but one who will be clearly over matched.

I realized, I don't think Bisping has very good defense. His only defense really is his movement...but he tends to circle left. I suppose against a south paw it wont be as detrimental.

He would kill Weidman as well.

I had to really push myself to look at this fight objectively, but I find myself believing that The Count will win this fight. But that is where my logic has him stopping. Silva has faced guys that are on a whole other level than Bisping can ever hope to be, and therefore I think Silva will all but murder him as well.

Chad mendes has no where the wrestling skills or bjj skills as weidman. Also I rate aldos TDD better than Silva's TDD. Weidman isn'tstupid enough to trade with anderson either.

Weidman is just the next thing. Everytime one of the big champs fight, people try to find 500 reasons why this is the guy that will dethrone the champ, when in reality we are all probably in store for the usual.

Weidman has a chance, I'm just not convinced he will consistently take down Silva for 5 rounds.

well weidman hasn't lost yet and he hasn't been in any trouble to my knowledge at all. If weidman can shoot anywhere as near as good as chael did in round 1 of the 2nd fight and all of the first fight he can easily win this because anderson will not sub weidman off his back and he won't get out from underneath weidman.
