I swear to God I've never seen a group of people so clueless on anything as much as I have when it comes to people on this forum talking about Weidman.
Weidman boring? His domination over Munoz was boring? His subs of Bongfeldt and Lawlor were boring? Yes the Maia fight sucked, I'll admit but only because he cut a bunch of weight in a short amount of time. Unknown? Not worthy of the title shot? Maybe, but boring? Get out.
Silva vs Weidman is the best fight at 185, Weidman was able to beat both Phil Davis and Ryan Bader in college and while Anderson is no doubt better at MMA it just shows his wrestling is no joke and he's got a real shot of grinding him out, and he is way better at jujitsu than Chael, the way this guy picked up jujitsu is scary and the people who are in the know about Weidman will attest to this. He can definitely survive against him on the ground.
Weidman can beat Anderson, will he? I don't know but he has the best chance of any opponent Anderson has fought at 185.
