I wonder what kind of retort you would send to me if it was I to throw the above quote to your face.
Never mind. Who never woke up with the left foot, isn't it?

I didn't accuse you of doing that, I asked you to clarify what you meant by your remarks claiming you were "reviewing" his record and weren't impressed by his lack of finishes in certain fights. I then pointed out that IF you were just looking at numbers on some site that would be misleading since it didn't really give the whole story for the reasons I mentioned. There are multiple people on here claiming they aren't too familiar with Chris and his fights, I don't know if you are one of them or not, but for those people not familiar with his career it is important to know he has had many short notice fights and has finished every single fight where he had a full camp. Useful information right there. I like how you ignored the whole first half of my post and jump right on the last part. Which makes me assume you were "reviewing" his fights by looking at numbers and not watching fights.

I don't even understand the reference "waking up with left foot"? Never heard that before.

I watch fights, every event without exception.

Well not only did I look at his record...I also read the career summary section. I'm practically a Chris Weidman expert.

If that's true you are far from alone in your "research" of Chris and his qualifications as a contender. Seems like the majority of people on here weren't aware of him until recently. I knew who he was before he was ever signed by the UFC.

It's no secret that I've thought he was overrated for a while. As many have said, a disappointing win over Demain Maia and a knockout victory over Mark Munoz doesn't warrant the rating he has now. He does pose some challenges to Anderson, but nothing he hasn't seen and dealt with before. Weidman can def win, because Anderson actually does have a gameplay to allow you to defeat him, but to 'predict' Weidman to win is overrating him. Yes he could do what Sonnen did, avoiding the submission, but at this point he hasn't shown the wrestling that Sonnen has. His striking isn't anywhere close to Anderson's level, but he could still easily catch Silva and put him out.

What I hate is what will happen after. If Anderson crushes him, Weidman becomes an overrated nobody who doesn't even boost Silva's career. If Weidman wins, Silva was way past it and should have hung it up years ago. Either way, it's no win for AS.

LOL I try to hide it because I got flammed a bit when I first started on here for being an "elitist". But there are some people that are from the same area as him that I posted with for awhile now(years) on another board and he put up in our "future prospects" thread in Aug.2009. So that's about when I took notice of the guy in the ROC circuit.

I never said that. You just did.

The same as waking up on the wrong side of bed and therefore being in a bad mood. I gave you the benefit of being in a bad mood for the idiotic statement you produced based solely on "I don't know you", but then you come with the usual:

I love when threads like these are pulled back.
Chris was just as deserving to a title shot as Anderson was after knocking out Leben.

He'll keep that belt for a damn long time
