Hall is a good fighter but Weidman's logic is ridiculous... The best guy to mimic Silva is a guy I toyed and then knocked out when we fought??? Ok dude.

What's similar is the distance awareness and unpredictable strikes.

Should he not?

Do people really believe Anderson's gonna do something when Weidman puts him on his back? Anderson was mounted by Lutter! Lol

That was over 200 years ago.


Weidman has the best chance of anyone in history though IMO. He's incredible in scrambles, he great submissions in MMA and his striking looked incredible vs. Munoz.

He looks a lot like a mini Cain.

It might have been but Anderson is helpless off his back, outside of his last second Hail Mary triangle on Chael which was basically a fluke he had nothing for him. Then in the second fight Chael easily controls him until Anderson starts cheating.

All Weidman needs is five takedowns and considering how badly he embarrassed the guy that taught Anderson how to wrestle it doesn't seem like he'll have too much trouble getting them.

People that have endless confidence in Weidman have nothing to lose.

They can spout off on here for months while we wait. If he wins they get to play the told you so game and make it a big deal for months more. If Weidman gets flattened like Chael Sonnen they just won't speak of it and act like they were kidding or something. Or quickly change the subject and say Anderson is a pansy because he didn't fight Bones yet.

I agree. It's impossible to think that Weidman doesn't get at least one take-down per round.

I think this fight will take place on the mat. My only concern for Weidman is, he loves to be aggressive and go for subs. He might get reversed and choked out himself.

I truly feel like if Anderson wants, he can make it a lot harder for Weidman to get a TD.

TDD isn't always 1 man vs. 1 man in a close clinch type setting. If Anderson plays the MAchida game for a bit, it will be hard for Chris to find that range for a shot. And it will give Anderson enough time to find his range/riddum.

Anderson is certainly better off now than he was a couple years ago. Can't hurt to train for a Chael Sonnen type matchup twice. Anderson is one of the only fighters who seems to improve at such an age.

Decent move by Weidman, but Hall cannot get him prepared for Anderson. Yeah, Hall has some flashy strikes with power. But..., that's not the dangerous part of Silva's striking game. It's his movement, timing and accuracy.
