Ed Soares: Chris Weidman Is Driving Me Crazy Over Title Shot Against Anderson | UFC NEWS

“Chris Weidman, I saw him in Chicago last Saturday and he was driving me crazy! He kept asking me, ‘Hey, let’s make that fight happen!’ He’s very confident and he’s a good fighter and we’ll see what happens. At the end of the day, we don’t pick our opponents. A lot of times people want to say, ‘Oh Ed, you picked that!’ People ask for my opinion and I give my opinion. Chris Weidman? If he’s next, the UFC will make that fight happen. Hopefully, we’ll see him in Brazil.”

    Give him the shot then and stop hiding anderson silva from everyone. You don’t pick fights. But nowadays I guess you can in UFC. UFC is going down the drain with money thirsty monopolizing Dana White who cries over everything that happens outside the UFC. You should EMBRACE other organizations not try to destroy them you fool.

    If Silva beats him easily ppl will say ” He beat a bum” & if he cant do it easily ppl will say “Spider is not so gr8 . He couldn’t destroy that bum”. Cuz nobody knows Weidman despite he is a dangerous fighter. Lose/Lose for Spider

      Dangerous? Not to Silva.

      hahaha. well I know him well and am a schooled veteran of MMA. Mark my words, Andy will slap the shit oughta Weidman – 1st or 2nd round KO. there is no issue there; the REAL problem with this fight is that it uses up an aging champion in training, for fights that would give him a real challenge. ie. superfights like JBJ. at 38 Andy still looks good, but at 40 his age is most likely going to show. Let’s get em’ some real fights while we still can, and really test his abilities against some amazing fighters. that’s what I’m saying. This Weidman thing is not interesting at all…look at Weidman’s card man – he hasn’t fought shit to be considered even close to bringing a legitimate threat to Silva. C’mon UFC – give the champ a REAL challenge while he still has his legs under him.

      • Dee says:

        Valid point. This is why I feel the UFC is making a big huge mistake. Anderson in so many words is saying I’m coming to the end of my career, please give me meaningful fights. The UFC is making wise decisions.

      • James says:

        You have a valid point, but it’s still worthless. Silva isn’t trying to fight the best right now. He called out GSP, I’ll give him that, but he’s not pushing to fight Jon Jones. Instead his camp was pushing for a fight with Cung Le. Cung Le isn’t a joke, but he’s not the best either. Don’t try and tell me a training camp for Cung Le is a valuable use of an aging champions time.

        • GRT 3000 says:

          fuck Cung Le and fuck Weidman and especially fuck Ed Soares. The UFC needs to get him Jon Bones Jones or GSP. The Silva camp needs to recognize that at some point (soon) the spider is going to get beat by age. put him in some real fights RIGHT NOW is all I’m saying.

    the only true challenge is hector lombard in my opinion.. but i guarantee yushin okami holds him on the ground the whole fight.. id actually like to see sum1 like johny hendricks or rory mcdonald go up & fight anderson silva.

    • Jackson says:

      You sound stupid…. Okami holding Lombard down for the whole fight? clearly u dont know shit about Lombard… go do your homework! He most likely wont even get Lombard down….

  4. Not You says:

    ANDY SHOULD NOT FIGHT JBJ. JBJ IS WAYYYYY BIGGER THAN ANDY. JBJ has the same reach as Stefan Struve. Last time I checked, Struve is 8 inches taller than JBJ.

  5. D-rak says:

    I don’t understand why silva isn’t fighting 3-4 times a year and keep those checks Rollin in. There isn’t anybody at middle weight that’s been a threat since silva came over. Give up the belt and go to light heavy weight

  6. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Just get it over with. Cries Whineman is not even close to the Spider’s league. Have Anderson slap the bum around for a round or two and collect an easy payday.

    I’m tired of this nobody begging for an undeserved shot. He has one questionable decision win over Maia after one of the most boring LnP fests ever and one win over Mark Munoz who was out of shape, looking all pudgy after a lay-off due to a shoulder surgery.

    So just let Silva destroy this dude’s career so we don’t have to listen to hearing him beg for a shot anymore.

  7. NoDoubtNOut says:

    Let’s get it straight, to say Silva is hiding from Weidman is insanely stupid. Unless you mean to tell me that Weidman is a better wrestler and a better fighter than Henderson and Chael Sonnen, in that case, I’d say you’re Autistic or have some sort of mental disability. Anderson fighting JBJ is just stupid. JBJ not only has awesome wrestling, but he also has a HUGE reach advantage against Silva. Silva is awesome anywhere, but Jones is also GREAT at using his reach and uses his long as fusk legs to keep opponents at bay. On top of that, Jones is WAYYYY younger than Silva, so he also has the advantage of healing faster and being able to have more effective training sessions than Silva. Silva is getting old and can only fight like twice a year nowadays, so it’s just not a fair fight for Silva. Silva is still Pound for Pound best, but Jones just has too much physical advantages against Silva.

  8. Anderson Silva says:

    Bring it on Weidman …!!! The Spider gona crush you…!!! Chris Weidman is just gona be another number added to the Champs List…!!! Lol i think damien mia has a better chance of beating silva Lmao he really sucks

  9. Okokok says:

    Ok this is my opinion. Yeah weidman vs silva doesn’t make sense, at least not yet. I think the best matches right now is belfort vs weidman. They are both up there and they just need to meet and fight for the #1 contender. Then I would like to see silva vs weidman. Or silva vs belfort 2. I think it would make more sense then. Also silva vs gsp would be an amazing fight. But jones vs silva it’s kinda a dumb fight. First the size difference. Then the age. Then they are both different generations. Even so I still think silva would beat jones. I mean just the way he makes other opponents look. I mean jones is also a great fighter. I don’t really like him cuz he’s just fake. But good fighter nonetheless. So I understand what a lot of fans are saying by having silva fight jones because it would be a good test for silva. But it won’t mean that if jones wins he will be the pound for pound best fighter in the world. I think that silva will remain forever the best fighter in the world unless someone can match his record and skills. If anyone thinks that if jones beating silva would make him the best pound for pound then think if jones fought Cain or jds. Jones wouldn’t be able to handle either of these fighters. So that makes Cain and jds the best pound for pound??? Of course not. Anyway I think silva vs gsp it’s a far more fair fight for both fighters being the #1 and 2 best fighters and they both are more matched in age. Size. And weight. And record.
