Rousey Pulling For Silva Over Weidman

“I think that Anderson Silva is pound-for-pound the best fighter of all time, and I really do believe that Chris Weidman is the worst style match-up for him. But if anyone can overcome the worst style match-up, it’s Anderson Silva,”

“Being that Anderson is, I think, towards the end of his career, I’m going to have to just pull for Anderson just because it’s like the end of it. I kind of want him to go out hot. Chris Weidman has an amazing future ahead of him. He’s going to be around long after Anderson Silva leaves. And I think that once Anderson vacates the division that Chris Weidman, it’s very likely that he’ll hold onto the belt for a while. But you never know.”

“I think they’re both very, very cool. I don’t want any of them to take it personally. It’s just kind of like Anderson is a legend and I just like having him legend-like.”

UFC female bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, told fans during her recent UFC Fan Chat, that she hopes Anderson Silva retains his title at this weekend’s UFC 162 event.

    One of the smartest things I’ve heard Ronda say. Reading between the lines I think even she knows Anderson’s in some serious trouble.

    The only thing she has ever said that I can some what relate too.

    blah blah – watch EVERY hype-card for Anderson fights…seriously. f(U)ckin EVERYONE is the worst style match-up for him. especially EVERY wrestler…how many high level wrestlers has the GOAT schooled in his career? he loses the first round, then he beats the shit out of em’ ~ watch & learn…again (rolls eyes)

  4. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    I think Anderson is going to school Weidman like he did last time against Bonnar. Silva’s probably going to win by KO or TKO, but I would love to see him submitting Weidman just so the haters can swallow their ‘superior groundgame’ crap. Anderson’s groundgame is highly underestimated and in my opinion on the same level or higher as Weidman’s.
