I think Weidman presents the best chance in a long long time to dethrone Silva.His wresling is sick ,he's brutally strong,and has good submissions.He would have to get Anderson down, but with his wrestling,i think he has a good chance of doin it.He's a big ****y kid that may not intimidate easy as the others.he's got a long reach too so anderson would not have that advantage for once.Curious any of you guys think he could pull it off or am I nuts?

I think Weidman could definitely provide Silva with quite a challenge. He's a very talented wrestler and has good subs, like you said, and not only is he strong but he's aggressive and, from what I've seen, a fairly accurate striker. If he manages to take Silva down as easily as Sonnen did, he might be able to get a KO/TKO stoppage if he can avoid getting subbed.

If he took Munoz down at will, no doubt he'd take Silva down. Plus he's got better BJJ than Sonnen. He would threaten with subs as well as GnP when puts Silva on his back. His striking also looks better then most guys Silva has faced, but if he stood with Silva he'd likely be put to sleep. If he wasn't a threat, you think Silva would turn it down? The guy wanted to fight Nick Diaz for Christ's sake.

he has a chance but i don't think it's great. Sonnen had the highest probability. Anything can happen though.

 

really i think weidman is a better grappler andmore dangerous standing, not to mention bigger with a longer reach, i like chael butweidman can finish where chael couldnt
