It's too bad Weidman didn't say that earlier about him and his family.
I remember Anderson saying that Weidman "just got here" so he may not have taken him as seriously as he should have. For a champion to stay around this long he always takes his fight seriously. Weidman threw an unorthodox combination that reminded of a time I sparred with a Heavy weight. I slipped all his punches and then I remember he threw a right then he did the same exact thing Weidman did in throwing a wonky back hand shot that clipped me in the head. It wasn't strong at all, but it caught me off guard and I was laughing cuz I knew it was kind of an instinctual. For Weidman he followed up with a left hook at the right time and angle. Usually Anderson would have countered by then, moved completely away, or just roll with the shot.
Honestly though I see a Matt Serra moment. NOW...Weidman will have many many fighters gunning for em. Be careful what you wish for...
I always felt Vitor was the #2 so I do feel he will fullfill his own dream now of being a multi-divisional champ.
