Chris Weidman says Brazilian fans want to see him beat Anderson Silva | UFC NEWS

By Evan Stoumbelis

“Not a couple, a lot, a good majority of them. Because I think I’m coming here confident I can beat Anderson, coming out in the public saying I can beat him, pretty much the ducking me thing. So I figured [the Brazilian fans] were going to be like, ‘Hey, wait a minute.’ But actually it was the opposite. You know, I guess there’s a lot of reasons, but a lot of them want to see him lose and they want me to beat him, so I was surprised with that.”

“The All-American” is a perfect 5-0 in the UFC and 9-0 overall. Weidman has been the topic of much middleweight title talk lately with a dominant performance over Mark Munoz in July.

    Who is this guy?

  2. MellowFellow says:

    This guy. You cant finish one top contender and think you deserve a title shot you peace of shit beat Bisping or Belfort and you can talk

    • WOW says:

      why would you call him a PIECE(not peace you fucking idiot) of shit? You don’t know this guy, he’s a humble dude and he want’s to win a title so that makes him a “piece of shit?” Do you realize Mark Munoz was ranked 3rd at MW when he knocked him the fuck out?

      • guy says:

        Fuck Munoz! Whineman proved nothing by beating his pudgy out of shape ass. How does a win over 2011 Chris Leben rank him 3rd? I put 2011 because you’ll probably come back with ‘oh but Silva beat Leben to win the title’ yeah well that was back in 2006 when talent was low and Leben was building towards contendership with a multiple fight win streak. So STFU about Whineman being a top guy, he hasn’t earned shit

      • Irie Nation says:

        +1….how can we take people serious when I laugh trying to read their grammar….maybe everyone on here are fighters after all and they’ve taken 1 too many blows to the head…but yea weidman is the real deal…and everyone talks shit on Munoz and obviously he has to have some level of talent because he was ranked third…if people don’t know him they should purchase more ppv cards and watch the other free tv cards and actually become a fan….but yea weidman is the real deal

  3. GRT 3000 says:

    He’s a guy that’s taking a page out of the ‘Chael Sonnen Anderson (hard-on) Name Dropper make me famous (& rich) book.’ You might have a shot one day Weidman, but you have allot more proving to do before you can name drop the champ like your next in line.

  4. Not You says:

    Weidman is fucking high.

  5. Bill w says:

    He fought a great fight against Munoz but I would like to see one to two more fights against somebody like bisping or Belfort

  6. punchkick says:

    this is just sad. weidman should come up with some awesome jokes and some entertaining story. at this rate, silva or anybody would definitely not giva a fuck who he is.

  7. Nate says:

    Weidman has done enough to prove he’s a contender and provided he beats Boetsch, Silva vs Weidman needs to happen ASAP.

  8. Mateus says:

    Weidman is an attention whore, he is just talking out of his ass. No fucking way that there is a majority of brazilian fans who want Silva to lose, that’s just bullshit, the guy is loved here. To beat Silva you need to be way above average in order to have a chance and Weidman has nothing tha impresses me. Wrestlin? Sonnen, Hendo, Okami, all of them had it. Explosiveness? belfort is pretty explosive. Striking? Good luck with that. Weidman is just full of shit,either you bring something different to the table or you shut the fuck up and respect who you can not beat. Chris Weidman can shoves his ridiculous 9-0 record up his ass.

  9. kenny powers says:

    IDK what the debate is over this guy. He’s a tough dude, good fighter with a lot of potential, but he’s still young in the sport and still has a lot to prove. The win against Munoz was impressive but even if he beats Boetsch he should fight Bisping/Vitor or Belcher/Okami. That said, whether he fights Anderson tomorrow, or 2 years from now, he’s getting KTFO just like everyone else, No one will ever touch the Spider.

  10. Rammpeth says:

    Hes anything but humble. He hasnt stopped talking shit since beating K1 Maia and a horrible horrible Muñoz. I hope he actually does get the AS fight so the Spider can tool this guy.. what a joke

  11. Know your shit. says:

    You guys are fuckin retarded, Silva had one fight in the UFC and then got his shot and he wasn’t undefeated like weidman is.. He deserves a shot at the title! You
    Can’t call Munoz horrible and all this shit, being 3rd in the world definitely does not mean you suck or are horrible.. That’s straight fucking stupid for you to say that.. How can anyone call a UFC fighter horrible or a piece of shot or any of that? You fucking dip shits, you sound real stupid right now. He will beat Tim convincingly, and then will fight bisping and destroy bisping aswell.. You fucking pieces of shit tryin to talk shit on a UFC fighter…

    • Stan says:

      Have a snickers. When you get hungry you sound like a diva

    • B-rad says:

      You make some good points there.. I guess its just people are fed up with him opeining his trap crying that he isnt fighting Anderson Silva (including myself) is why there saying he’s a piece of shit and all that. He is like a little whiny kid that didnt get the toy he wanted for christmas, you cant deny that! Hes a tough fighter and i think if he wouldnt have turned down belfort, he would easily be in a #1 contender fight, instead hes 2 fights away froma title fight

  12. Xaninho says:

    Hahaha what a tool! Silva ducking him? It’s the UFC who decides and they know Whineman is a nobody. Don’t worry Whineman as soon as the UFC thinks it’s time for you to get stomped on you will get the shot. And the nerve to talk about ducking while Whineman blatantly refused Belfort’s offer to fight him.

    Only notable name he beat besides a few cans and a bullshit split decision after a boring ass fight against Maia was Munoz, and everyone with a brain could see Munoz wasn’t ready nor in shape.

    So for now he needs to shut the fuk up and fight whoever the UFC puts in front of him and let Bisping get his deserved shot after years of fighting whoever is in front of him without complaining.

    • Irie Nation says:

      I have a brain…my brain says Munoz would have whipped your a$$ that night

      • Xaninho says:

        Don’t be too sure. But suppose he could, the issue here is not whether Munoz was in a good enough shape to beat a random guy who only has time to train 10 hours a week. He wasn’t in shape for a fight against another pro fighter.

        But I guess your ‘brain’ couldn’t comprehend the difference…

    • Irie Nation says:

      Everyone talking shit on weidman cuz he’s talking shit?? He’s doing exactly what you fans are and that’s running your mouth…so I guess that makes every fan on here a pu$$y right???

      • Xaninho says:

        Where did you see me calling any fighter a pu$$y?

      • Mike b says:

        No he just keeps running his mouth like a girl,kinda like how u do,talking shit,running ur mouth like a chick wanting attention!lol

        • Lol says:

          Right,he probably got his ass beat growing up and still he talks shit to people on the Internet to make himself feel better.Guys like that are bit*hes in real life it’s so obvious.

  13. Mars the Avenger says:

    He’s pulling the Chael card. Highly doubt Brazilians want to see him beat Silva. Great, thanks Chael, UFC is slowly but surly turning into another WWE.

  14. Confucius says:

    i love how people try to justify silva having only one fight in the UFC before his title shot. Do you idiots know the history behind Silva before entering the UFC?! does PRIDE ring a bell? Does winning the Shooto and Cage rage belt mean anything either? Weidman had FOUR total fights before entering the UFC in his entire career. How on earth does that make people think hes ready for the greatest fighter of all time and deserve a title shot is beyond me. Spider has 2 fights left on his contract which in my opinion should be superfights. He has nothing else to prove in the sport. HES THE GOAT

  15. 123 says:

    in my opinion the only fighters in the middleweight division that could potentially beat anderson silva are.. chris weidman, michael bisping, jake shields & vitor belfort.

    • Sasquatch says:

      Agreed, the only reason I think Shield’s stands a chance is because of his deadly finger poking attacks… sharpest finger nails in the business!

  16. Mike b says:

    This guy still hasent shut up yet?beat bisbing,vitor,belcher,then maybe u can start challenging silva.

  17. Kenshiro says:

    this dude needs to sit his ass down…

  18. Sasquatch says:

    This dude needs to fight Anderson…

  19. KIDD433 says:

    This clown needs to go home and get his fucken shine box.Silva ducking him?Hilarious!

  20. Shawn says:

    lol! He’s mistaking them. They don’t want to see Silva get beat by him. They want to see another “big mouth” get a knee to the face, by their national champion. At least Sonnen had racked up his wins against more than one top contender in the MW div, before facing Silva for the first time. And… is far more entertaining.

  21. B-rad says:

    I respect this man as being a professinal fighter. That being said HOLY FUCK SHUT THE HELL UP ALREADY!!!!!! It sounds like he was talking directly out of his bunghole in this. Was there like a national survey conducted in Brazil asking this? If he would have wiped the tears from his eyes for 2 seconds after his win, accepted Vitor’s challenge, he would be in a #1 contender fight. Instead Bisping stepped up and now Anderson’s next fight at 185 will be against either Vitor again or Bisping.. Whineman has 2 fights to win before he gets the priveledge to get demolished by the greatest.
