Not even close. You only need to look at the odds to see that Chris beating Silva is not that massive an upset, regardless of what the rabid MMA community might think. GSP was around -1300 in the fight against Serra!

Betting odds far from tell the whole story though, they are set in a manner a casino hopes to make money off of. This would be a monumental upset in the sport.

I honestly can think of a bigger upset in the UFC than if Weidman takes the strap this weekend.

Sorry. I still dont see it. It would be an upset no doubt. But no bigger then many upsets and certainly nowhere near the absurdity of somebody as rubbish as Serra beating GSP.

It's a big story. The champion with the longest unbeaten run in the UFC losing for the first time. I can understand the gravity of him losing. But hes up against a pretty well matched guy. If hes going to lose any time soon, its going to be to Chris Weidman. Silva losing would not be a huge surprise to me and many others.

As a big fan, I can say I would be really upset, but if Anderson is to lose before retirement, Weidman is the kind that would deserve to be the one to carry on as champion. Classy guy and a complete fighter. Imagine if for some catastrophic misfortune, Sonnen did beat Anderson.
Again. IF Anderson is to lose...

Though everyone says "when Sonnen showed the blueprint on how to beat Silva". .. fact is Silva got put on his back multiple times WAY before Sonnen. In the UFC, Lutter and Hendo for example took Silva down multiple times. Fact is, though it might be the chink in his great armour, just putting Silva on his back is not the blueprint to beat Silva, Silva still beats them convincingly after. Very few can put Silva on his back who still has the 2nd best Takedown Defense at MW, and even so, putting Silva on his back meant very little until Sonnen did it, and talked his way into making people believe that he is uncrowned Champ. And making it more than it was in both of their fights.

What im trying to say is, does Weidman put Silva on his back? Likely. Does Weidman win a Round by doing so? Likely. Is Silva still going to find a way to finish Weidman regardless? Also likely. Gotta go with Anderson Silva either TKO Round 2 or easy Decision Victory via Leites/Maia fight clowning.

My prediction...

Silva looks dangerous, but noticably slower than his Bonner fight, meaning that age has seemingly caught up to him. Chris Weidman doesn't quite manage to dominate the way Chael did, however he still gets the takedowns from Rd 1 up to Rd 4 to avoid Silvas absolute worst punishment. Throughout rounds 1 - 4, Silva lands some deadly combinations, while Weidman lands some devastating combinations of his own, and because Weidman got the takedowns, many people feel that he won the majority of those rds, meaning Silva MUST finish Weidman in the last round (ala Silva/Sonnen 1). Rd 5 comes arounds, Weidman gasses and Silva lands a flurry of punches on Weidman throughout the round, nearly finishing him but Weidman miraculously survives the late onslaught, and in most peoples eyes, to get one of the greatest upsets in MMA History. It has been a war, Joe Rogan is ecstatic, and both fighters congratulate each other on the great bout.

After the commercial, the referee pulls both Silva and Weidman to the center of the cage for the official judges decision. Everyone is the statiums heart is racing as Bruce Buffer is getting ready to announce the winner of this bout.

- Eddie Marcs scores the contest 48 - 47: Silva

- Ricardo Almeida scores the contest 48 - 47: Weidman

- and Cecil Peoples scores the contest 49 - 46 for your winner by Split Decision...

...AND STILL THE UNDESPUTED MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD, ANDERSON "THE SPIDER" SILVA!!!

The announcement is greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos as most people feel the decision was contraversial and felt Weidman won the bout not to mention the belt. Silvas camp celebrates while Weidmans camp is outraged.

During the press conference, Dana announces that there will be an immediate rematch because of the contraversial nature of the decision. Throughout the coming months, UFC fighters are asked who they thought won, some saying they thought Weidman should've won, others saying Silva deserved the victory.

Despite the immediate rematch, Silva injures himself during training camp, and will be out for another 4 months. Weidman opts to take a fight before than, that fighter being Vitor Belfort. Weidman defeats Vitor Belfort by TKO (punches) in the second rd in his home country of Brazil. In the post fight interview, Chris Weidman calls out Silva saying "This time, I'm ready.". By this time, most MMA Fans are absolutely certain Chris Weidman will end Silvas undefeated reign of terror in the UFC.

5 months later, Silva and Weidman step into the cage once again to settle the score. First rd, Silva wobbles Weidman with a devastating punch. Weidman survives the rd after an early onsaught from Silva. Second rd starts and it's the polar opposite as Weidman takes Silva down within the first ten seconds, and lands many solid combinations on top throughout the rd. Third rd starts annd Weidman attempts to take Silva down. However, after Silva stuffs the TD attempt, Weidman backs away and they feel each other out until halfway through the second rd when Weidman abruptly hurts his knee, rendering Silva the winner by injury default. As Silva avoids defeat yet again, fans and fighters alike question rather the Weidman knee injury was legitimate, or fake because he was afraid of losing a second title shot. Chris Weidman, not long after, tweets pictures of his dislocated knee, and ending all suspicions on him faking the knee injury.

Before they get a third chance to fight each other to end all questions, Silva retires and Weidman wins the vacant middleweight championship against Renaldo Souza.

That's what I see happening...

Dont be silly. That'll never happen. What will happen is at 20 seconds into round 3 a tear will appear in the time/space continuum, blending Silva and Weidman together forming a fearsome beast... The Wanderman. This creature will go on to devour the planet and all things on it.

Sig bet?

I loved the effort that went into this, but I see Silva dominating Chris other than a few takedowns. I also see Vitor T/KOing Chris not the other way around.

This saturday will be interesting though!

I would say it would be a pretty massive upset if Silva lost. The best fighter in the world losing is huge. Especially to a guy with 9 freaking fights. Silva has more title defenses than Weidman has total fights.
