I think Weidman can do it he has some good talent never know.
I believe it's the other way around.Agreed. Weidman is amonster and I think he would soundly beat Palhares but Maia can outstrike him IMO.
He is I guess what you would call the best prospect to beat Anderson, a beast wrestler with amazing BJJ, his only issue is that he's still very green. Looks like he'll be getting a shot sooner rather than later if he beats Maia though.Wow, I must have been hiding under a rock, because I never really heard or paid attention to Chris Weidman. Just checked his last few fights out and he's a very solid fighter from the few fights I watched. This should be interesting!
Source: http://www.britmma.co.uk/#/introducing-the-all-americ/4546694681The first of these is 'The All American' Chris Weidman. Having registered victories over the likes of Ryan Bader and Phil Davis on the Wrestling mat, the 25-year old has since gone on to accumulate a 4-0 record in Pro MMA against tough opposition, and has looked excellent in the process. Weidman gave a brief introduction to his background in sports before he entered MMA competition.
"I started Wrestling in second grade as well as doing Shudokan Karate for two years," he began. "I've been always involved in physical sports. I tried out for the 2008 Olympics, and Wrestled throughout my whole college career and high school. I didn't make it for those, and I tried out Jiu Jitsu shortly after. Then, I had to make the decision whether I was going to check out this 'MMA thing' and go with that, or try again for 2012. Those were my options, and at the same time I was moving into Grad school and trying to do the right thing with that as well."
That's insane that he beat Ryan Bader as well. To be honest, I'm seriously going to follow this kid.
This time it is not the American Governments fault, it is Wikipedia's fault! Sure, our congress is looking into bills to help halt online piracy, but the bills that Wiki is concerned about and protesting with the black out have efectivly been killed by the President. So they are shutting down because of a law that never was!I'd check but Wikipedia is blacked out cos of the stupid United States government.
It shouldn't be outside of revoking the legislation making it illegal since it removed an existing right for a bullshit reason. It is a protest to let them know that what they are doing is against the will of the people so they don't try this shit again.Man, two of my favorite fighters! Extremely excited to see this one!
I am going to be pulling for Maia but would not be upset either way!

At the end of the day, piracy needs to be addressed and it is congresses job to pass laws. These two laws were not looking like they were going to pass to begin with and are not pretty much dead because of Obama. That is exactly how government should work! Propose laws to stop a problem, if the laws cause other problems, scrap them and start over!
Finally they got it right!
