He'll keep that belt for a damn long time
I disagree with that but I agree that he's not overrated.

Maybe a little overrated. If Anderson had taken this seriously Weidman might not have KO'd him. Its like when Overeem got KO'd by Big Foot. It was his fight to lose.

Anderson took Weidman as serious as he took the last 10 guys. This time he just go caught pulling back. The overeem thing is different because that's not his style

The people that thought Weidman had no business in there with Anderson are morons.

Credit to Anderson he had Weidman on the verge in the first, that shot was awful but its just like Weidman said the entire time he wasn't afraid.

I actually don't know what to think of CW is he that good, or was it luck. It would be very interesting to see how it plays out. The good thing is the MW division is wide open again, I wonder if Evans/Machida will jump down now?

He is a world class wrestler with excellent grappling. Aside from his much talked about ADCC appearance and MMA subs, he also made a very daring and close attempt on Anderson with a leg lock, something a lot of people are overlooking. If he was positioned literally just 6 inches higher on anderson's thigh, that thing was a lock and Anderson could not have rolled out of it.

He also has a good chin and very good standup. Not flashy but fast, powerful and technically good (not many noticed that high kick he missed on Anderson but it was deadly powerful and had zero telegraphing, or his excellent rolling and blocking). His elbow on Munoz of course was a thing of beauty. Most of all he has balls of steel and a strong focused belief in himself, with the humanity and humility (for now at least) to channel it productively.

Is his striking better than Anderson's overall? Probably not, but it is obviously more than good enough to deserve his respect and to set up takedowns. Even without Anderson's clowning, Weidman had enough chops on the feet to set up his takedowns and he would have grinded him away regardless which I believe we will see in a rematch. Unless Weidman gets "belt limelight syndrome" and goes to crap from all the fame and attention like Machida and JDS did.

Remember this is not the first standup wizard that he was supposedly "inferior" to on the feet that he has KOd cross-eyed either, he actually KOd Uriah Hall ON THE FEET in a similar fashion. Uriah is also supposed to be this striking phenom who can only be beaten on the ground.

I think a lot of people that have been sleeping on Weidman will slowly and grudgingly come to realize his full depth as he knocks off the next few contenders.

High level wresting : check
High level BJJ : check
KO Power : check
Good combinations : check

Good chin : TBD

The sounds like gsp with less technique but more ko power and killer instinct.

There's no doubt he is good. He was doing real well on the ground with Anderson, he was staying active and throwing powerful shots. Looking past Anderson's antics you can see the legitimate potential in Weidman.

Weidman is not overrated, he has finished a number of fighters including Anderson Silva and made it look easy.
