I just can't get excited for this fight, so any questions that I can't answer, there is such a discrepancy between Silva and anyone Weidman has fought that I just can't make a case for Weidman winning. Its not that Weidman is or isn't good enough but simply that we don't know. The puzzle pieces seem to be there but that is based on a lot of stuff outside the octagon to like his wrestling credentials and his ADCC stuff. I kinda get the feeling like because the pieces are there everyone is jumping on Weidman just because somebody is surely gonna beat Silva eventually and he seems like his strengths are in all the right places. That said we just don't know how potent those strengths really are.

Those are great points, Toxic. People like to criticize his wins over Maia and Munoz, but whether you agree with the criticizers or not, those guys aren't even remotely close to Silva's overall skill level so it's hard to say how things will go in this fight considering they are Weidman's biggest wins.

Yeah I have no idea how good this kid actually is based on his UFC fights and I scored that fight for Maia because I'm not blind or pretending that holding a guy down for 8 seconds wins you a round. This fight doesn't have the normal Anderson Silva excitement for me either it is like I am getting ready to watch the Bonnar fight again.

Kinda sucks that Weidman's momentum is going to get crushed so early into his career. I wish they could have built him up more so I could actually be pumped for this fight.
