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.
Not to turn this into a Sonnen vs. Silva thread, but Chael won 5 rounds against Anderson. Technically, he's the uncrowned middleweight champion.

His movement, timing and accuracy might matter if this fight was gonna be contested on the feet.

Too bad he's got nothing for the takedowns.

Remember when Travis Lutter took Anderson down with ease and almost finished him with ground and pound?

Yeah... Weidman's got 'no chance'.

This is just like every GSP fight where the challenger's fans come out proclaiming it'll be an easy victory for their guy, excuse me if I hold my congratulations for Weidman until after he beats the best fighter that ever lived (not that I'm not excited for the fight)

I'm afraid you're confused.

No one gave Diaz, Hardy, Shields, or Condit(except me) a shot against GSP.

GSP also doesn't have a glaring weakness in his game that can be exploited like Anderson does.

Plenty of people were saying those guys stood a good chance, especially Shields. Just because you didn't doesn't mean you're representative of the entire population.

That glaring weakness really was his downfall against Lutter... oh wait there was Hendo that got him down... and then lost, or when Chael got him down and didn't even come close to finishing him. You say glaring weakness, I say point me to the wrestler that's beaten Anderson by exploiting his weakness.

You are on tilt. Posters like yourself are an odd bunch. You seem to get so worked up that you start to make things up as you post.

No you didn't say anyone said it. But who here said it...or even said half as much as "Weidman has no chance". You can't find a single post anything like that in 4 pages of this. Yet you want to play that card as if that has been the theme of the thread.

It is weird when posters need to make things up and then get defensive about a total fiction situation they imagined in their head.

I just have to say that I believe Weidman has a chance but not because he's a wrestler. It's about bjj. Anderson has never lost due to wrestling but he has been submitted before and Weidman has some very impressive credentials in that area.

That being said it's damned hard to bet against Anderson at this point. He hasn't lost in years and barring the first Chael fight has been extremely dominant against the best they could throw at him.

My thought is that while Weidman has a nice style match up against Silva he is not as proven in the sport as the champion. He hasn't faced the same level of competition. Anderson has proven time and time again that you can not bet against him. I have to back Silva.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I've always said, at 185 he most likely has the best chance of beating Anderson.

Can you still not tell when I'm trolling you? Jonny... we've got some serious relationship building to do. I thought we'd gotten over this hump.

That said... I've seen you say more than once that Weidman has a snowball's chance in hell of winning this fight. Don't deny it you rascal.
