Chris Weidman argues he deserves next crack at UFC middleweight champ Robert Whittaker

Recommended Posts

xChris-Weidman-USA-UFC-187.png.pagespeed

In the main event of UFC 221, former Olympic silver medalist Yoel Romero knocked out former UFC and Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. With this win, Romero is believed to have earned himself a crack at reigning UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. Not everybody, however, believes he deserves this chance, as he lost a decision to Whittaker just last year. File former champ Chris Weidman into this group.

 

While Weidman was impressed with Romero’s win, he believes he’s got a bit more work to do before earning a rematch with Whittaker. In his eyes, he himself is more deserving of the next middleweight title shot.

 
 

Chris Weidman made his case for a title shot in a post UFC 221 chat with Submission Radio.

 

“As far as who should fight Whittaker [next], I don’t know, I think I should,” Weidman said. “What’s [Kelvin] Gastelum ranked? Top-five? He’s ranked fifth? I just finished him, he’s never got finished in his career. So I’m coming off a win. Romero [was] coming off a loss. He ended up beating Luke, but he already lost to Whittaker.”

 

While Weidman believes he deserves a shot at Whittaker, he understands that he’ll likely need to pick up another win or two first. In that event, he’s prepared to fight somebody like Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza – though his current priority is healing up a lingering thumb injury.

 

“As soon as I’m healthy, I want to set [up] a fight. Whether it’s fighting for the title – obviously that would be the best case scenario for me. But if it’s Jacare or another guy, that’s fine.”

 

“I just gotta get my thumb healthy. I feel like my fight with Kelvin Gastelum, was a good fight. I think I learned a lot from my other fights that I lost prior to that, and it was good for me. I had a very meteoric rise, and out of nowhere I lost three in a row, and so it was a good learning experience for me. I learned a lot from it, and now I’m prepared to take everything back.”

 

 

 

Would you be interested in a fight between Chris Weidman and Robert Whittaker?

What is wrong with Weidman ffs lol

 

If anything, he needs to fight someone else before talking title shot.

 

He should fight Jacare, simple as that. He beats Jacare then yeah he can talk about title shot

Jacare deserves the next shot. He just hammered Brunson, and he already beat Romero, FFS.

He lost to Romero and literally just got destroyed by Whittaker in 1 round lol

Weidman vs Whittaker is the best fight possible at MW right now and would be a truly epic title fight.

12/17 writers scored it for Jacare. There were more people who scored the fight a draw than did for Romero. So yeah, Yoel lost to Jacare.

    

As far as the Whittaker loss, that was almost a year ago. Since then, he's beaten a higher ranked opponent than Weidman on his 1-3 streak.

WTG, i love Weidman because i'm a new yorker but hes goddamn delusional

 

you dont lose 3 and then beat a fat welterweight outside of the top 5 to get a title shot. Thats like Carlos Condit getting the next title shot if he beats Matt Brown

weidman looked lost and almost like an amateur vs mousasi.. 

 

getting ko'ed 3 fights in a row, ofcourse hes delusional.. and all 3 guys are ranked higher than him (including mousasi).. he would have to avenge at least 1 of those losses, plus beat a guy like jacare to even sniff a title shot.

He dominated Mousassi before the nice Christmas gift the commission gave to Gegard. Try again troll.

You can say it was a close fight that's fair, but you can't say that he beat Yoel. A lot of refs would have stopped the fight in the 1st round when Yoel hurt him very badly, Jacare did a good job recovering and almost coming back to win on points but it still wasn't enough.

 

Weidman had 2 close fights with Luke and Yoel before getting caught, it happens. Still he's a 3 time defending champ that just finished the #5 contender Kelvin

 

Jacare lost every single second of that Whittaker fight, he got destroyed in 1 round quite easily. He will need more than 1 win to earn a rematch, I'd be totally fine with him vs Chris for the next shot

given i was sitting front row risers in buffalo, and saw chris' wife burying her face into a sweatshirt not watching her husband get tooled up on the feet, i can assure you there was no domination from weidman..

 

i think gegard out struck him like 3 to 1... so you can try again.. it actually was horrible, he looked terrible and knew he was getting pieced up bad on the feet, and then he acted like he couldnt continue after the knee to take the NC (cowards way out), then found out he was going to get the loss and started complaining.. so not only did he get owned, he looked like a **** too 

 

you should change your AV, suspend your account, and throw your compaq presario out your mothers window

Laying lifeless on the canvass is not a close fight.

Weidcan got knocked stupid 3 times in a row and thins he deserves to be in a title fight over a guy who beat him and has better wins than him.

 

We are not talking close calls, we are talking knocked the **** out and years later his brain damage is still showing.

Literally everything in your post is trash **** garbage not even worth responding to.

 

What happened to the days when forum trolls actually put forth a little effort?

I'm not saying those fights ended well lol, clearly they didn't.

 

Both of his losses were close fights until he got caught, it happens. This matters because people like you are acting as if Weidman is a complete can that would get body slammed by the local trash guy on your block.

 

If you can't agree with that then we cannot continue to have a conversation. I understand that you and everybody else here absolutely hates Weidman with a passion, I get it. Still you need to realize that your level of vitriol is causing yourself and several others here to become completely delusional.

Romero KO'd him and the guy that took his belt

 

Weidman vs Branch for perm. Gate Keeper position

Weidman had a 13 fight win streak at one point, your boy Mark Gunt is 13-12-1 and at one point had 2 more L's than W's. Your entire beta country fills stadiums to watch that fat can, so you have no business talking about gate keepers.

 

 

Edit: confused you with Ozpride, Canada is hot garbage and all of your favorite fighters are bums.

Still waiting to see the relevance to this thread

 

GSP went out on top, Weidman is 1 - 3 in his last 4. Are you going to cry about how GSP has you perma rustled? or can we stick to the topic
