Dana White says that every fighter he has spoken to believes Chris Weidman is going to defeat Anderson Silva at UFC 162.


Quote:
"All the pros, when you talk to all the fighters - every fighter out there that I've talked too that we've interviewed thinks Weidman is going to beat him [Silva]. Georges St. Pierre thinks he's going to win so much that he didn't even want to plan to fight Anderson."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White reveals to media members at a Thursday (June 13, 2013) scrum (watch it here) that every fighter he has asked feels Chris Weidman is finally the man to defeat Anderson Silva and is going to shock the world by taking the middleweight championship from "The Spider" at UFC 162 next month in Las Vegas, Nevada. UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has made his stance on the fight very clear, and according to White, many other besides "Rush" feel the same way and tip the scale in Weidman's favor.

Dana acting as if he is a promoter and trying to convince the public that this is the fight to keep an eye on.

What will GSP's reason as to why he isn't thinking about Anderson after Anderson wins?

Any guesses? Any good excuses left for him?

Weidman's split decision win over Maia and his second round KO over Mark sure is impresssive...?

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.

He says 'every fighter' and then names one, lol. It's only DW doing his job. But I've seen plenty of fighters choose Anderson to win, though none have gone so far as to count Chris out entirely - and rightfully so.

Yeah I'm really confused on this one, I'm taking Silva on Killz game, I'm likely going to bet on Weidman and for the pick'em I'm still up in the air. This is such a speculative fight because Weidman is just such a massive blue chip prospect and Silva's just been phoning it in.
