Curious? If Weidman smashes Silva and subs him or wins a one sided decision will people say Weidman is that good, or will it be because Anderson got old over night?

I'm guessing it will be "Anderson got exposed, he was always susceptible to being taken down but fought in a shallow division, yadda yadda."

At least, that's what I'm expecting from Sherdog.

Anderson's speed is already gone. He was just freakishly fast for his size when he was younger so he is still really fast when he is on his downside.

Wiedman will stop Anderson, who will then go on a three fight skid ala Fedor.

Weidman is bigger, stronger and more well versed in BJJ than Sonnen. If Weidman is aggressive than what is stopping him? His performance against Maia is the key, the fight sucked yes but on 11 days he cut a tremendous amount of weight and pushed through.

That's the sign of a man who wants it and is willing to dig deep to get it. No one can hang with Anderson standing up but if this thing hits the mat he's gonna be in trouble. Weidman will hunt for the finish too, that may ultimately lead to his downfall because Anderson only needs one but Weidman is a serious threat.

Dig deep? Submitting Sonnen in the fifth is digging deep. What about this kid makes you think he's the one to end Silva's reign, aside from sad, biased hatred?

Maybe the fact the only times Anderson has looked bad was against grapplers? And Weidman is the best one he's fought?

You know this how? Weidman has talent for sure but we haven't seen him against any real top talent to know his grappling is as good as many seem to think it is. I would actually like to see how Weidman would fare against other top MW's like Sonnen, Bisping, Okami or even Belfort before I would even contemplate assuming Weidman can beat Silva. The fact is Weidman has looked good fighging low end or mediocre fighters, this is a huge step up in competition for him and to have a chance he is going to have to live up to all his wrestling/submission hype if not exceed it. If he can't he will lose plain and simple. Silva has far superior striking, is very dangerous off his back and lately has even showed some very improved takedown defense in the Okami, Sonnen and Bonnar fights.

It'll be because he got old, for most here. On Sherdog, it'll be because he finally got exposed after facing his first legit hi-quality opponent. Something like that.

I'd put it somewhere in between, but it doesn't matter because Weidman won't win; not after this layoff, especially.

Anyone who thinks that Weidman is his first high quality opponent is kind of dumb.
