I agree with all this, but maybe I was considering the "dangerous" aspect more like having the capability of finishing the fight violently fast. I also think Weidman should win if he doesn't fight recklessly. I just think the speed, volume and power Vitor will bring could end the fight in the first round, something Machida hardly brings.
Vitor certainly has a stronger 1st round in him. However, the way I see it so long as Weidman can use his excellent timing/distance to avoid his strikes much like Anderson did, I honestly don't see Weidman struggling with Vitor on the feet. Outside of that, Machida is a far more dangerous opponent in the sense that he is more skilled, has more ways to win and just in general has a much higher chance of getting a win over Weidman.
Let's just say, I was 50/50 on Weidman vs. Machida. I knew Weidman had great striking/timing because he showed it against Anderson, but Machida is also great at it and has the TDD to at the very least stop a few of his takedowns. Where as this fight I'm about 70/30, maybe even 80/20 if Weidman sticks to the gameplan of pushing the takedowns and GnP.
Keep talking big guy.
You really do like twisting word and shit, So you can be considered tough ? Or are you just mental?
Anyways just because a guy tells you that vitor is a better striker doesn't mean that weidman isn't well rounded.
Weidman has and advantage over belfort and that'd wrestling. So he should play into that.
You know in the real world fighters fight with game plans.
The question is, why would you not think Weidman has an advantage over Vitor in the striking department? What high level strikers has Vitor beat recently? Has Vitor ever beat anyone with the striking ability of Anderson or Machida? In fact he got his face kicked in against Anderon in the first round and got beat up on the feet against Jones. He's got power, but that doesn't mean much if he's getting beat up and outclassed by a superior striker.
Don't get me wrong, Weidman should certainly get the easy TD and GnP him out, on paper that's the easiest way. Who knows, though? Maybe Weidman sees a hole in Vitor's striking and will plan to exploit it and put him away, he can most certainly do it. We will all just have to wait and see.
