This fight ticks me off because 2 Years ago when Chris first came into the UFC I said he would be the future champ.

Chris is soo talented it's crazy, but he still needs work and experience versus a couple tougher guys IMO.

I just seen him do an interview on the MMA Hour and I love the guy. He's a great kid, funny, and hyper (and he craps himself while training lol....)

The reason why GSP and Hendricks are 100% sure that Weidman will beat Silva is because Weidman is a better wrestler then both of them,i have Silva winning but won't be surprised if Weidman takes Silva down and Elbows the shit out of him.

Tim Boetsch picks Anderson to win! That said, Tim Boetsch also says that he'll be the one to dethrone Silva...

I can understand many reasons for writing Chris off. But commenting on the quality of his opponents up to now is not one of them.

Who did Ben Hendesron beat before he got his title shot?

Who did GSP beat before he got his title eliminator against Penn?

Who did Silva beat before he got his title shot?

Who did Bones beat before Rua?


All these guys fought their toughest opponents from their first title shot and onwards.

MMA fans are hypocrites, pure and simple. Everyone knows that Anderson Silva did zilch to earn his title shot against Franklin, yet fans expect that anyone who sets foot inside a cage with Anderson ought to have conquered 3/4s of the known world beforehand. There is no rhyme or reason to it - it's hypocrisy.

Funny thing about being the champ, they typically give you the hardest opponent they have

Just screwing around with you

I really think that if Weidman had a couple more years and maybe a solid loss or two to teach him what his weaknesses are he could be a legit contender. While I do feel he is at least a top 5 (I have him as #3) MW, I also still think the skill gap between AS and him is way too high. I don't think his wrestling game is so overpowering that he will be able to do what Sonnen couldn't do last time, which is consistently take AS down.

The one fighter I agree with on this fight is Dan Henderson. I will be interested to see how good his chin is. Anderson Silva will touch it, he has to be ready for what to do if he is hurt from it (assuming he is still awake).

Although I agree that knocking Weidman for his wins is dumb. You obviously have to take into consideration the time it was. You can't compare 2005 to now. Nate Quarry would have been a big win then. Back then they did a card every few months. Now they do one every week. There were far fewer fighters. Rankings and win streaks were rare. Can't compare the 2.

True. And thats exactly my point. The UFC with its shallow rosters needs to keep the best challengers free for the champions. So criticizing Chris for his quality of opponent is a bit silly considering. If they fed Chris all the top contenders before the title shot, then who exactly is Silva/Vitor etc supposed to fight in that time? The UFC simply doesn't have the numbers to keep the top of every division busy with quality opponents.
