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?
