Default Silva v Weidman

I view this challenger as a huge threat. A young, strong, confident wrestler who has shown Great timing with his TDs lately. He is coming along well and finished Mark Munoz in spectacular fashion. Chris Weidman has all the tools to win this fight, but he is up against the Greatest Mixed Martial Artist of this generation. I have no idea how this one will play out, what say you?

A takedown, skills on the mat and physical strength.

Silva TKO
Silvas reach knowledge is to much for Weidman to handle

He will have to close the distance to work his sub game...

So what are the key points he needs to utilize to enforce this game plan Robert

Chael closed the distance quite well. Chael isnt known for his power and dropped silva multiple times. I think Weidman by UD.

I am going out on a limb here and tipping Spider. Bare hands. Bare feet, and no tools required.

He dropped him 3 times? Maybe you should go watch the fight again.

I'm calling Weidman to win this one, and it sucks. For some reason, I really ****ing hate Weidman. Nothing I can put my finger on, but something about him just sets my teeth on edge.
