Michael Bisping: Weidman’s Not ‘The Great White Hope’ That Will Dethrone Anderson Silva | UFC NEWS

“I’m not sold on Chris Weidman. I don’t see what all the fuss is with Chris Weidman. I’ve got nothing against the guy. He beat Demian Maia in the candidate for the worst fight of the year, a lot of people are forgetting that. He looked decent against Mark Munoz, but Mark Munoz looked terrible and I was never sold on him in the first place. So I think everyone in all due respect just needs to calm down on Chris Weidman just because he’s undefeated. He’s undefeated because he’s beaten a bunch of bums. He’s only had about seven fights. I’ve had nearly 30 fights. I’ve been in the UFC when he was still in school probably. So I got nothing against Chris Weidman, but I don’t see him as the Great White Hope that’s going to come in and destroy Anderson Silva. He’s just another middle of the road UFC fighter as far as I’m concerned.”

UFC middleweight contender, Michael Bisping, recently discussed his thoughts on fellow middleweight, Chris Weidman with the MMaFightCorner.

Weidman has been elevated to number one contender status by the majority of MMA fans and as a result, Weidman and some of the UFC brass back his shot at the middleweight title. However, Bisping is not sold, but is he right?

  1. Bitch ass Greg J says:

    Bisping vs Weidman, winner gets the spider. Plain and simple.

  2. Dick Diaz says:


  3. ya herd says:

    Bisping should get his shot first fuck weidman!!!!

  4. magoo says:

    I got more faith in weidmans white arse beating Silva,then I do I you Bitchping!

  5. yeahrightman says:

    I don’t know what the UFC is thinking. BISPING vs Silva would be one of the biggest fights in middlweight history. Weidman, I’ve never even heard him talk. Let bisping go first data don’t be a tard.

  6. Paul says:

    Maybe Bisping doesnt see what the fuss is about Weidman is but the fact is Weidman has better physical tools, is more athletic, better amateur credentials, is younger, has more potential, an is improving at a faster rate than Bisping is so Bisping is going to end up looking like a fool in the end if they ever fight each other.

  7. duncan says:

    Weidman would destory bisping and any ufc middleweight for that matter this guy is the middleweight jon jones…with a full training camp he is unstoppable he like chael sonnen with actually top notch jiu jitsui skills and better striking

  8. I got to love Bisping for some of the shit he says. He don’t hold back nothing. “Great White Hope” is correct. Chael was the first one now it’s Weidman. Bisping doesn’t get to be the “Great White Hope” because he’s not from the US. If lightening strikes and Bonnar wins or puts up a fight like Chael did he’ll be the new “Great White Hope” to take Anderson’s middle wright title. That by the way won’t be on the line in their up in coming fight.

    Got to respect Bisping for always telling it the way he sees it.

  9. Anybody who roots for Chris Weidman getting a shot at the title first is a fucking retard who’s daddy probably fucked a retard and the retarded mama gave birth to a retarded kid saying retarded shit like Weidman being “the jon jones of MW.” I’ve never heard a more retarded statement, I think the retards that said sonnen would win against silva were smarter than that retard. The biggest names he beat are Maia and Munoz, neither are even in the top 5 MWs. Bisping and Weidman are same height, similar build, but bisping has more experience, better well rounded game, and wayy better stand up. Weidman is undefeated 10 fights, Bisping went undefeated 14 before losing to former LHW champ Rashad Evans. Stop eating the garbage UFC feeds you to hype bullshit match ups you dumbasses rooting for weidman.

  10. Drew says:

    This is getting fucking ridiculous with this Wedman dude ya he’s a good guy but seriously here’s a good way to put it to those fans who thinks he deserved a shot… If u felt Munoz was the number one contender before Weidman beat him is Weidman now the number 1 contender… Fuck Brian Stan just beat bisping… Bisping added more takedowns for points then anything to be frank about it played to the judges hands

  11. Tito Briceno says:

    I agree with Bisping.. Look at the guys he beat before Tom Lawler?!? A bunch of nothing big. If he fights Silva, he will be destroyed. He hasn’t earned his stripes just yet to get a shot. Yeah he beat Munoz, at I think was his worst. Bisping deserves his shot! Look at the guys he beat, his win over a tough Brain Stann should have sealed the deal for his Title Shot. CW has much more to prove before he gets his.

  12. Jason says:

    Lol did you say stann beat bisping? He landed one huge shot and then got picked apart. Bisping destroyed stann you tool. Chris weidman hasn’t beat any top 5 mw he is calling silva out for popularity. no one is gettin a title sure who people dont know. I’d say only 3rd of ufc fans heard of weidman and thats after beating a broken down munoz. I remember when lombard was the big thing to fight silva lol. doesn’t matter silva can pick apart all the mw division.

  13. ya herd says:

    bisping should get the shot enough said weidman has plenty of time to get a crack at it

  14. 123 says:

    dana white is a prick, michael bisping is a legend & chris weidman is a tit.

  15. 123 says:

    the michael bisping haters said… mayhem miller would submit him, NO chael sonnen would dominate him, NO brian stann would knock him out, NO… in my opinion he’s on a 5 fight win streak that deserves a title shot… akiyama, rivera, mayhem miller, sonnen & stann.

  16. Xaninho says:

    I totally agree with Bisping on this one…..Weidman is highly overrated, the hype is completely unwarranted.

    Beating Maia by a controversial split decision in a horrible fight and beating an out of shape, pudgy Mark Munoz is simply not enough to earn that spot. Whineman needs to fight at least one real topcontender before even thinking of fighting the best one out there.

    • mean170 says:

      I couldn’t have said it any better. I think Weidman gets taken out if he ever fights any of those Middleweights from the Ultimate Fighter Brazil. That fight with Damian Maia was the worst I have ever seen. Thank god Maia moved down to 170, he looked much better there. Ah now i’m rambling.. I couldn’t agree more.

  17. where do you get your drugs from? says:

    hearing bisbing talk about weidman fighting bums is a bigger joke than his career.

    only way bisbing can win against anyone is if he outworks them. meaning hes gonna have to go in and out strike someone because hes not going to KO someone or Sub someone.

    bisbing talking about boring fights… bisbings career highlight reel is boring..

  18. well by the numbers bisping has won as much as silva just not for the title or a win streak but their record is till similar so i think Bisping should fight weidman to stop the critics then try at anderson silva

  19. weidman is not yet a legit contender, problem is everyone is buying that he the next big thing against silva. weidman has yet have to go through a lot of adversity inside the cage.
