Chris Weidman Training with Uriah Hall to Prepare for Anderson Silva

Quote:
Hall has been impressing the TUF 17 viewers all season long with incredible KOs. It seems fans aren't the only ones who've taken not as the next Middleweight contender plans to bring him in as a sparring partner for his title fight.

After months of campaigning, UFC Middleweight Chris Weidman was granted his wish in becoming the next to challenge for Anderson Silva's belt. Weidman first entered the top of the division with a lackluster decision over Demian Maia at UFC On Fox 2 and cemented himself as a potential contender by completely dominating Mark Munoz at UFC On Fuel TV 4.

Silva and his camp repeatedly dismissed Weidman's contender status repeatedly before finally accepting the fight last month. Now that his title fight is scheduled, Chris will bring in TUF 17's Uriah Hall to help him prepare for the Spider

Quote:
"I actually think I'm going to bring in, you know Uriah Hall from The Ultimate Fighter? He has some cool kicks and stuff like that. I actually fought him before too," Weidman said during an appearance on Chokes and Jokes.

"If you get caught standing still, looking at him, he's going to freaking kick you right in the face. You got to be moving either getting out of there or you're moving forward. [Uriah Hall] is another guy, if you stand there with him, he's going to kick your head off. It has to be the same strategy. You move forward, you punch him and go for takedowns."
While Hall is certainly a talented striker, it will be no small task for him to prepare "The All American" for the 185 lb. king. Silva picked up his 11th title defense and 15th consecutive UFC win at UFC 148 with an incredible 2nd round TKO over Chael Sonnen. He followed that off with a complete demolition of Stephan Bonnar in October.

Silva and Weidman will meet as the main event for UFC 162 in Las Vegas, NV on July 6.

Chael and GSP's wrestling. Uriah's striking.

Anderson's downfall is upon us

I bet once Weidman beats him Dana will give the instant rematch to Silva, unless he wants to go to LHW

Weidman already said he'd give the rematch to Andy at MSG.

Andy is probably the guy that better keeps his calm while in the octogon.
I can't imagine him having such a calm if he were the kind of person to feel terror about fighting other dude...

Too funny. Uriah Hall is so ridiculously overrated it isn't funny. He has thrashed some TUF bums and been on a commercial and the casual fan thinks he is some phenom.
