Then you should lay some bucks on Anderson if you think this.

Already have a few times, each time the line moves with Silva as less of a favorite.

Nice varying results. Pretty much what I figured. Chris is getting a little more love then I expected but it's pretty spread out.

I personally think Weidman might shock the world.
Though I could be horribly wrong and he'll get finished once Anderson is done "feeling" him out in the first round.

This would be much easier to answer after the watching the first 2-3 minutes of the first round. I think Weidman needs to be as agressive as humanly possible, think Cain vs JDS 2 fight. But can he against one of the best of all time? I dunno

But what if he cant get Anderson down on the first two attempt, will he get discouraged and try and trade punches?

35-40% He's the big fast strong young wrestler the likes of which Silva hasn't fought since entering the UFC. He has a better than 1-3 chance at beating the GOAT one.

Not sure exactly what the %s may be. Could be 35%. Could be 10%. But I think he has a better chance than pretty much anyone at MW. Jacre would be up there as well, but the wrestling is the difference there.

5%.

I highly doubt he has any chance at all of doing any damage to Silva. I don't think that he'll land a single take down.

Anderson Silva is the second return of God. I'm not exaggerating.
