“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.
