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.
Thanks to Ape for the sig.
