They obviously interviewed GSP, Matt Serra, Dan Henderson, Costa Phillippou and Chael Sonnen and no one else.


The thing with Weidman is that he's still just a brown belt with no BJJ credentials to his name whatsoever outside of that extremely overrated performance against Galvao.

It's cute he's being made out to be some serious submission threat that's going to submit a guy who's been on his back against guys like Lutter and Thales Leites....who while they weren't super awesome fighters, they were both pretty damn good BJJ practitioners.

In case you didn't know, Costa and Weidman don't train together anymore. I'm really glad they made that move. All we need now is for Georges and Rory to end their bromance.

Dana is a hilarious guy. I heard him in an interview like 2 weeks ago raving about how honest he is.

Jeez, Weidman is like a sirloin fighting a fillet.

You'd better buy the PPV cause all the other fighters think weidman will win! Serra thinks he will win, GSP thinks he will win - GSP would never use it as an excuse not to prepare for silva, never.

I reckon Silva is going to go in and finish him in the first minute.
There will be no Bonnar messing around and rope a doping

Yes he has no BJJ credentials aside from beating that one Brazilian world champion, and of-course beating that other Brazilian world champion on 10 days notice with a 30lb weight cut wouldn't impress you much. I mean Galvao and Maia are nothing compared to Leites and Lutter.

You could also point to his D'arce choke victory over Tom Lawlor and his standing guillotine chokes as being mere lucky breaks and not indicative of any "real" submission skills.

But I mean what's more important his accomplishments or his belt.

What first Brazilian world champion do you mean he beat¿ Galvão¿ You know that Weidman actually lost that fight and people rave about his good performance for not getting submitted and surviving to a decision¿ And you want to add to his BJJ credentials a fight agains Maia when the latter was in a phase of his career where he thought he'd be a kickboxer and used his BJJ once in that fight, namely to stand up again when both of them found themselves on the floor¿

9 pro fights. 0 top five wins. Layoff due to injury.

This isn't like when a rising fighter in Jon Jones got to fight for the title 6 weeks after beating Bader. Weidman has no steam coming into this fight, and is highly inexperienced in the first place. He's big, got good grappling, mixes it up well. So what? If he'd beat Bisping or Vitor 6 weeks ago and was 100% healthy, on a high and diving right into this fight, the upset might be a tempting bet.

This is the wrong time for the boy to be fighting Anderson Silva.

Its fighters trying to convince themselves that there isnt someone out there who is 10x better then they are.

My main reason for thinking Weidman has very little chance against silva, apart from a massive skill gap, is the fact that he has been so inactive for the last year or two.

I just dont see any way that he beats Silva.

Um, I know you are just talking out of your ass. But you do know that he was praised for going the distance and doing solid vs. Galvao on little formal BJJ training right. He didn't actually BEAT him.
