First of all, I think Weidman is a good fighter, good personality, skilled, young and huge potential. So please, do not come here saying I hate eidman, blah, blah, blah. I like him !
However, there is something "funny" and curious I wanna see about Weidman, the MW champion.
We all know, Weidman didnt really face top competition before getting that title shot. Maia got KTFO by Marquart and tooled by Anderson and now in at 170. Munoz (its a fact we all know) was coming from a long lay off. It wasnt Weidmans fault since MW was kinda lame around that time. There was no competition so it wasnt his fault, simple as that. He beat who he had to beat, period.
Then he fights Anderson, who "danced" around like a clown (even Dana said that was almost becoming another Abu Dhabi) overlooking the younger lion (Weidman) and no surprises there. We all know what happened !!
As december 28, things are taking another path on Weidman carrer. He will be facing a more "serious", "focused", "butt hurt", "embarassed" Anderson Silva who I'm pretty sure will fight more professionally at least. Yes, Anderson might say he "wont do anything different" but to me that is just bluffing !! Lets say he will "dance less songs".
After that, winning or losing, Weidman should be facing either Machida/Mousasi winner, Vitor or even Jacare.
It wil be almost as if Weidman will make his UFC debut on dec 28 versus SERIOUS opponents.
Sorry, my personal opinion (this is a free forum) is that Weidman will NOT beat any of those 4 guys I mentioned above, reality will sink in and Weidman might go down as one of the most forgotten champions in UFC history with Shogun and Evans !
Have a good one folks !
