I feel Weidman is probably the biggest threat to Anderson's title since Dan Henderson. I do see the potential of a Weidman victory. But I gotta go with Silva I think he'll pull it out. I see Weidman having his moments but at some point getting caught and stopped by Silva.

Oh I get that. He is brave and confident in his skills and won't back down from his opportunity to be the greatest. What I really ment was like who among us never got scared before an important test or job interview, right? And that certainly affects us somehow.
I couldn't blame Weidman if he is experiencing goose bumps. I would.

For everybody that says weidman has only had 9 fights.... jon jones had 13 fights before he crushed the title holder and didn't beta anyone that great along the way so this experience talk is a bunch of nonsense imo.

I dont see a problem here. Before Jones title fight plenty of us we're saying hes still green. Of course he went on to prove himself very much the real deal. For example, there we're valid questions regards his chin and his ability off his back. The chin question got answered when Bones ate a full right from Bader and didnt flinch at all. He also ate a hard shot from Rashad. Did nothing. His ability off his back is still kind of unknown so theres still some questions there.

Nobody saying Chris is green is suggesting he also wont turn out to be an amazing fighter. There's a good chance he'll turn out to be something very special. But until we see all facets of his game pushed to limits, we wont really know. Theres nothing wrong with this assumption.

Thats the thing about Anderson. We've seen him in all kinds of situation and hes come through. Theres no area we've yet to see him dragged into.

I just think the experience thing is a bunch of bs, I mean you can say GSP lost to hughes young but really not long after he pounded him and took the title anyways. I don't see anything chris would gain by getting more experience if anything that gives anderson more ammunation if he has more footage on him and knows his weaknesses.

Experience is everything. How can you dismiss it so easily? Its fights like GSP vs Serra that makes a fighter change his game. Without that experience, GSP would be a different fighter.

Chris right now is super confident. He's convinced he'll never lose. If he loses or takes a beating, it'll change him no matter which way you cut it. It might change him for the worse... or for the better, but it'll change him. Thats what experience does to a fighter.
