Is Weidman overrated?

Do you think that Weidman's hype is way ahead of him when people think that he's the one to dethrone Silva?

IMO, he shouldn't even be in the octagon with Silva. He's done nothing to earn it.

The fights only happening because they couldn't give Bisping a shot after losing to Vitor and there was no else who hadn't already lost Silva.

Just watched his 2 most recent fights and saw nothing that would justify the hype whatsoever. Chris is a good fighter, got some talent in some areas, but winning the belt sounds not so plausible.

I say yes and no. He has shown tremendous potential and could very well be a big thing, but I am not sure he has quite earned the hype that he is getting just yet. To answer the poll, I picked Silva to win.

Weidman is not overrated. The only other fighter at 185 besides Silva that could beat him is Jacare Souza IMO.

I really don't get how some people think he's gonna win. It's not like he's been on a tear like JBJ was when he got a shot. Plus JBJ was fighting Shogun, who is good, but he's not the GOAT.

I'll be betting on a first round TKO from Silva come the time. Weidman is just so inexperienced, imo a victory over a fat Munoz and an out of sorts Maia does warrant a shot at the gold.

This.

He's definitely overrated right now, but that doesn't mean he's a bad fighter or that someday in the future he can be champion. He needs another year or two under his belt before taking a fight like this IMO.

Besides, Chris hasn't fought since July of 2012... it's a year

Hard to tell we have not seen him fight anyone near Silva's level or anyone I would consider an upper echelon mw. He has looked good but we have seen many guys look good against mid tier completion and then fall apart against the top guys. Time will tell but at least stylistically he is tough fight for Silva

No.

He is the future win, lose, or draw against Anderson.
