I have Weidman winning this using wrestling, possibly with a submission. He'd be silly to stand with a non-clowning Silva. I wouldn't put any kind of real money on this fight though.
Isn't the first but I can't think of many more. I believe BJ and GSP were both still favored in their rematches with Frankie and Serra. Can't think of many more. I think Bones was slightly favored over Shogun.
Not sure what to expect in this fight. I don't think Weidman betters Silva standing again though.
