Well, that's a bit harsh... look at it this way, you can't equate MMA math to say Weidman>Munoz>Maia>Sonnen... just doesn't work.
Actually....that is a case of MMAth that works, MMAth that wouldn't work would be
Okami>Marquardt>Maia>Sonnen because Chael beat the guys that beat Maia.
Second of all, Weidman had one of the easiest paths to a title (not discrediting Maia, but he's a WW now). He couldn't beat Bisping, Okami, Belfort... and I dare say a few others in the top 5.
He hasn't beaten them because he hasn't fought them, but Belfort got his shot having never fought in the division coming off an injury layoff. Patrick Cote lost a reality show and he got a shot, the guy who beat him and missed weight still got to fight Anderson. Also Okami was out of the top ten when he lost to Tim, he's come back but it's a recent comeback, Bisping has lost every-time he's stepped up, and Belfort can't get a license in "merica and just came off a fight with Jones.
Not sure what Munoz ever did. He beat Maia, in a fight many others gave Maia. Other than that he has no good wins.
osmium is the only person who I have seen give that fight to Maia, and osmium loves Maia. This is why I didn't read your factual post about Galvao because you pull out weird crap like that. Seriously are you really going to rewrite history in Maia "almost" won that fight.
