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.
It's better weidman take him on now when anderson has little info on him and weaknesses than say later if someone puts him in serious trouble or whatever and it's an easy blueprint for anderson to use. Weidman has the advantage of knowing anderson's only weakness being he doesn't do much from the bottom and anyone with a good bjj game and good wrestling can make him very uncomfortable.

Its not rocket science. Silva is gonna want to stand with Weidman, whos going to do everything to take the fight down. They both know where the other is weakest. Difference is, Silva has been taken into those deep waters before. He's been very uncomfortable many times and come through to win. Weidman has no idea what it feels like to be under the cosh. These experiences mean a lot to a fighter.

Again, im not saying that Chris isnt going to prove himself to be an absurdly good fighter. But you cant dismiss experience. Weidman having all that tape to look at wont help him. Because Silva is rarely consistent with his techniques. Im sure Chris knows this.

Experience is everything?

Shogun had ten times the experience Jones had.

Rua had 140 fights when he fought Bones? Wow. I had no idea. I stand corrected.

I cant believe I'm in here arguing the merits of experience in the fight game with you people. If you dont think experience means much, then that's fine. I'm just gonna back away because this argument is absurd.

it doesn't mean much, people have a shite ton of fights and yet they never even come close to getting a title shot. Do you think travis wiuff would ever be a top 10 ufc lhw? he's had like 80 fights so he has the experience.

It's as simple as skills and confidence that makes the man, rich franklin certainly had more experience and title fights than silva coming into both of their fights. BJ Penn debuted in the UFC.

Dude, what are you going on about? All of those fighters are better for their experience, not worse. Travis Wiuff might be shit, but he would have been a lot shittier if he had had 10% of his fights. Same goes for any fighter. Come on now. I cant believe I'm listening to this.

Are you seriously suggesting Chris is better off against Silva with 9 fights then he would have been if he had 20 under his belt? Seriously??

Yes because he is younger, no one knows how to beat him, his confidence is sky high and the longer you wait the worse your chances are.

Jose Aldo didn't need more than 9 fights to know he was the best in the world, jon jones well we know that story, cain has looked the same since day one and no travis wiuff would have been better without the experience because he wouldn't be a slow old man like jeff monsoon who has been figured out a million times. And lets not forget about jens pulver vs joe lauzon..

Jose Aldo was better for having nine fights though, right? Jon Jones was also better for having the 14 fights he had before facing Rua. etc.

Or are you suggesting 1-0 Bones was as good as 14-0 Bones? That he didnt improve at all in those 14 fights?

Old age and injury is what fecks up fighters, not experience. In 95% of cases, a 27 year old stud with 20 fights under his belt is going to be better then he was at 21. How anyone can deny this is mind boggling.

Jesus H christ mary mother of god help me... I cant believe what im reading here. I know ive said this before, but I really need to stop now before my brain dribbles out of nostrils.

Explain to me how you think chris would be better for having more fights and giving anderson more proven holes to exploit instead of having to figure it out during the fight. And the little jon jones holes has in his game has been been seen because of more experience, no one knew how to beat him before the shogun fight.

Then after the machida defense people now said he has troubled with fast in and out fighters for the future, in the rashad fight it was over hand rights and for vitor it was bjj defense. But he won the title before anyone could see any of this.

Experience isn't everything, but it does count for a lot. It shouldn't even be a debate since it is literally factual information. The more you do something, the easier it becomes to replicate in the future. Anyone that doesn't believe that is just ignorant to the topic at hand.

This doesn't mean Weidman will lose, but it is a positive for Anderson that he is the much more experienced fighter.
