Weidman gives Silva the Velasquez treatment for three rounds or so and then either tkos or submits him.

I wouldn't be shocked if Weidman doesn't just ride him for 25 minutes or if we get yet another "controversial" decision.
You think anybody can survive with Weidman on top of them for 25 minutes?

Of all the tools I've seen from Weidman gnp is really at the bottom. He has great BJJ but it's from a wrestling choke based sort of thing and I do not see Anderson Silva getting choked out.

I could see Weidman turning into a GSP type smother and win type fighter especially with the guys he's got lined up (Belfort, Jacare, Machida) Silva might be the easiest fighter for him to wrestle from that group.

Then again Weidman has amazing timing which is really underrated and he could KO Silva again.

Make the WW division great again

45 seconds on top of Siva was enough to convince me otherwise. Weidmans GnP is heavy and painful. Its early days in his career, but im willing to bet in a few years time, he'll have won a good few fights via GnP.

Google translate with few adjustments.
The MMA world will be static on the 28th of December. On this date, Chris Weidman will defend the middleweight championship against Anderson Silva , the fight will be a mark on the entire history of the UFC. After suffering the first knockout of his career, the Brazilian will try to prove to everyone that learned from the mistakes and provocations made ​​in the first fight .

Excessive tricks and pranks in the Octagon led Anderson to the loss of an unbeaten run which lasted seven years. In addition, several friends and former teammates were upset with what the 'Spider' did in Las Vegas at UFC 162 in July. One was Wanderlei Silva .

Former training partner of 'Spider' at Chute Boxe , the ' Mad Dog ' believes in the victory of Anderson , but says no more rooting for him if more games should happen in the Octagon . " If he does everything right , has 99 % chance of winning, but if he does what we did in the last fight , I stop cheering for him . I was very upset with his behavior in the last fight , it's too bad you see a friend falling due to a mistake , something unecessary . "he had the victory in his hands and if he would come back focused for the second round , he would definitelly knock out Weidman. I think Anderson won't be crazy to do those jokes again and risking to be defeated once more " , Wand said in an interview for Fight Ag .
Anderson Silva has said several times , as UFC president Dana White that his contract was renewed for ten fights before losing to Weidman , who was the first . Still, Wanderlei Silva believes that the intent of the 'Spider' is ending his career after a win against the ' All American ' .

"I think his plan was to put the ass in the shade , giving a rest , but after this defeat , will only be able to do it next year. Anderson has to face this fight as seriously as it requires if he does not want to fight anymore, win this fight and leave the belt in the Octagon , retires . During the last fight, he should have done ​​this, KO the guy and retire as the best of recent times . Anderson needed not have gone through what happened in last fight , no money could be enough for that, "he said .

Wand also states that this is a great opportunity to show why Anderson Silva did set several milestones in the UFC. " Now is a good time to show that Anderson is a great champion , since the situation is different and it will come as challenging . Believe that if he does everything right, I have no doubt that he will retire as champion ," he concluded .

I actually really like Chris, and if he is the man to carry the MW flag into 2014, I'm okay with that. That being said, Anderson is my favorite fighter of all time and I honestly belive the man is far from done. Yes I'm one of the "fanboys", as some would say, who thinks Anderson was more responsible for the loss than Chris was for the defeat... that's not happening again.

I'm on the fence with Sooj. I don't even know who I want to win, much less do I have an idea who is going to win.

my money is on Weidman.... however, my head is somewhere else... NOT entierly on Silva, but definitely much more cautious than my wallet.

Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

He opened as less than a 2 to 1 favorite. You could still get him at less than 2 to 1 by fight time as well.



Could have been 3 to 1 on some book tho. But all these common books never had him at 3 to 1.

Anderson likely crushes Weidman, but: A fight like this may actually go the distance, as Weidman will be less likely to engage Silva on the feet like he did in the first fight (gotta beat the champ) and if Silva goes into a defensive hands up counter-striking mode, then it could be a fight where two guys stand and look at each other. Wiedman will get a takedown or two, but I don't think he has the subs to get Silva. Everything is on the line for both guys and I don't think they want to leave much to chance. Could be a boring fight?
