Yeah I thought this was discrediting of Munoz and then Maia with the "he" being Weidman not Munoz.

Next time semicolon or comma not a period.

So your clauses agree and you aren't speaking in fragments.

I don't even know why the Maia fight keeps getting brought up.

Weidman took that fight on 11 days notice and cut 32 lbs for it, not exactly the display of his talent.

Weidman has been on a long layoff and beat mediocre fighters at best.. Now he is fighting Anderson Silva.

You know what? I'm a pretty good soccer goalie, in fact i am probably the best goalie in my division in my men's league. Shall i make a request for my team to be entered into the English Premiership ?

I don't count that fight against him at all. I know what he had to deal with. But Maia wasn't himself as well. Also, Maia has easily moved down to 170 while Weidman might be the biggest current MW out there.

I am more interested in talking about the Munoz fight. He looked awesome vs. Munoz, but no one here thinks highly of Munoz unless it is a Weidman backer trying to justify how awesome a performance that was. It was awesome, but Munoz was a fat, short fighter with a bad haircut that fight. Munoz's wrestling hasn't been impressive in MMA at all. Munoz is a flat footed short brawler/wrestler. Munoz, other than Maia, really has very few even solid wins. He may have been ranked high because of a win streak, but he has never shown me a skillset that makes me believe he can be that top 5 guy.

I along with many others realize Weidman is a top 3 MW no doubt. No one is saying he isn't good. But Dana is promoting here...obviously.

Anderson backers could be wrong. Anderson is 38 years old and Weidman is said to be a can't miss prospect, with tools to be a dominant champ. So maybe this is the time the next generation fighter knocks off the old dog. Weidman has much more of a chance than Okami or Belfort did. But even if ANderson wins in round 1....the same people will claim reasons why the next guy up will beat Anderson...and so on.

9 fights or not, it is a quality title fight. I don't think you can use the Maia fight against Weidman...but at the same time I don't think you can you it for him either.

By every fighter, he means GSP and Weidman's camp partners. The UFC did this same crap with Belfort when they said Silva met his match. Dana is just trying to hype the fight and the UFC has convinced online MMA fans that Weidman has a real chance (a lot of casual fans don't know who Weidman is period). Although there's no reason at this point to think anyone currently at MW has a real chance.

Weidman is getting his shot at Anderson because there's literally nobody else for Anderson outside of people he's already defeated. This is a non-fight, it won't go to the second more than likely and that will be that.
Disagree. Sonnen got his shot off the back of casual fans by running his mouth. Weidman got his off the back of hardcore fans that know he is a legit threat. Weidman is the threat Dana tried to convince you Chael was. Plenty of people got fooled by Chael, this is the real threat.

It's just Dana being Dana, helping to massively over-inflate Weidman. Nothing to see here.
