I share the same sentiments. Beating Machida impressively is all the proof i need from Weidman.however.

Beating Machida at 185 at all is impressive. Machida is about as top tier as you can possibly get at 185 or any division right now, so if Weidman gets through him even if it's a tough fight, I'm sold... although I'm already sold for the most part.

Weidman by New York accent.

I predict Diego Sanchez/Cathal Pendred by Split Decision.

For once I'm REALLY interested in a fight. This fight will either solidify Weidman as a great champion or make Lyoto one of the all time greats. So for me the intrigue is more important than the actual belt.

I have no idea how this will go down since both fighters have been impressive lately, Weidman could use his wrestling and simply maul Lyoto with GnP. On the other hand, Lyoto is hard to get a hold on and hard to take down. He could out-point or even drop Weidman if he gets the chance.

Weidman doesn't have the reach-advantage of a Jon Jones, and will have more trouble with Lyoto on the feet than Jones had, and Jones had trouble with Lyoto while standing.

Then again, Weidman caught Andy with a beautiful shot out of nowhere and it was all over.

What I'm trying to say is - I have no idea what's gonna happen, and I like that. I will be pulling for Lyoto though

I think Weidman, but I think if everyone is being honest with themselves they can see either man winning this. It really will be a joy to see a fight that can go either way with so much on the line. I'm just hoping no immediate rematches afterwards.

It's about time we get a relevant UFC title fight. The sport has been quite boring lately.

Weidman has to be the favorite in this fight he's solid everywhere...But there's still some questions regarding his legitimacy as the MW champ. He won both fights with Silva but the circumstances were not ideal. If he beats Machida he's 100% legit.
