Weidman to me is a heavy favorite. 4 or 5 to 1 I would set thr line at. Hopefully oddsmakers dont and I can play the line and make some money.

Rockhold, Silva, and Machida are all tougher fights for Weidman in my opinion.

I think it's hard to say that considering Silva offered Weidman basically nothing in 13 minutes.

And I think it's hard to say that considering Vitor head kicked Rockhold to oblivion in the very first round and Machida, well, see my previous post.

This post makes no sense.

Vitor is off trt.

Are you using mma math?

What does how rockhold matches up vs Vitor have to do with how either match up with Weidman?

And Weidman dismantled Anderson when Anderson punted Vitor in the face the very first round. So what is your point?

The previous post from best casual fan is more logical. Anderson had little fot Weidman twice. Hard to say Vitor is less of a threat. But yea I think Rockhold and Machida in a rematch are tougher fights than Vitor for Weidman.

Non TRT Vitor is going to be in trouble. Am I the only one who wishes we got to see TRT Vitor vs Weidman?

I accept the TRT less issue as I have no clue how that will affect Vitor, but he did't break a sweat and dispatched Rockhold in the first round. He is very, very dangerous specially in the opening rounds, and even without TRT, I think.

You cannot compare the Anderson posture in his fight against Vitor with his posture against Weidman 1 and conclude they were the very same.

Is it to use MMA Math to compare styles and results? Vitor is a finisher by nature and he has nothing to lose. I still favor Weidman if that will make people's hearts softer, but the sense of urgency in Vitor and the idea that could be his last shot make him very very dangerous, in levels I can't even compare with Machida or Rockhold.

Weidman better keep his distance and jump on his legs with extreme caution during the first round. If he plays arrogant and decides to strike with Vitor, that would be a huge mistake.

This.

Belforts losses are all to legends.

Barring Overeem, who even though has never held UFC gold he held DREAM, K1, and Strikeforce HW titles all at the same time and is damn near 100 lbs bigger than he is.

Vitor is definatly more dangerous early on.

I still think Weidman can strike with him and even put him out early as well. Hes not going to be GSP and wait to set up tds from range. Hes going to come at you. Display very good striking defense. Hit you. Grab you. Take you down.

Its so hilarious that a guy who beat Machida and Anderson standing without taking any damage early on those fights would br arrogant to stand with Vitor at all. Too funny that this is still the opinion.

I had my doubts about Weidman after the Silva fights because let's be real, Silva lost the 1st fight as much as Weidman won it. The 2nd one was a great showing from Chris' part until a freak accident ended the fight but after Machida, i was sold on him. Don't see anyone giving him too much of a trouble for some time.

That's a pretty legitimate point.
