UFC Boss Says Weidman Title Shot Against Silva Is A Possible Reality | UFC NEWS


“I think that fight’s closer and more possible than people think. I actually thought Weidman was going to be out a lot longer than he was because of his injury, but he’s healed up pretty well and is claiming he’ll be ready to start training again in a couple months,” White revealed when speaking to UFC Tonight.

“We’re looking at a couple of different options right now, some options that we like, and Weidman’s one of them.”

– UFC President Dana White via Fuel TV’s ‘UFC Tonight’.

    Bout time!

    • Sasquatch says:

      No doubt, looks like there’s going to be some butt hurt people after the fight reading some of the comments below. It’s going to be either Weidman or Lombard dethroning Silva.

      • BiggoTrav says:

        At this point, it would take a pretty ignorant person to dispute that Weidman deserves the shot considering the state of the division. However, it takes an even more ignorant person to even suggest Weidman winning the fight is a possibility.

      • magoo says:

        Yup ur right Sasquatch he is a terrible matchup for Anderson and AS and his camp realize this, Weidmans got skills ur all fooling yourselves.

        • frazzledazz says:

          Lol hell get his takedowns stuffed easily and Silva will outstrike him til about the 2nd, maybe 3rd, round when hell finish it with another KO

      • azumpire says:

        Lombard? Are you kidding me? LOL Only guy who can even stand a chance,and possible beat Silva, is Weidman

  2. Dee says:

    This is ridiculous! Weidman was too hurt to fight Tim, and was expecting to come back in Late in the year. Silva announced his return in Spring, Bisping and Belcher are set to figth and all of sudden Weidman is healed.

    It’s whatever man. Even if he’s able to beat AS he wont last long in the division.

    • slickrick says:

      No, Weidman can’t beat Anderson Silva. No matter how much he says “I have the tools to beat him” he doesn’t. Weidman would get beat up by Chael Sonnen on the ground and would get beat up on the feet by Belfort and look what happened to them.

  3. Zack says:

    Bout time for Weidman to shut up. He will talk a big game but once the cage door shuts he’s goin down just like all the rest. Hopefully a flying knee to the face. Chris comes off as a giant douche.

  4. andy1 says:

    Well there goes weidman’s career, Anderson will humiliate him and everyone will start saying chris was a can anderson should of fought jones blah blah blah

  5. IZrides says:

    Let him get that fight. I would love to see his eyes when he realizes he stepped in with a Monster.

    • GRT 3000 says:

      It’s not winning the fight that he’s after – Weidman knows he’ll get his ass kicked. It’s the notoriety and the money he’s after. UFC is getting all WWE these days. get Andy a real fight man.

  6. fernando says:

    kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk !!!!! y they keep given loot to anderson liked that … hes balling in brzil kkkkkkkkkkkk dim dim facil hein negao puta q pariu huahuahhuahuahua

  7. GRT 3000 says:

    another first/second round KO for Anderson. let’s get him a real fight kids – a superfight. Weidman is NOT ready for a title shot.

  8. Lou says:

    Weidman should at least have to go through belfort first. The only top name he’s beat is Munoz

  9. Kimba says:

    Why is everyone so quick to pull the, ” this nobody is sooo ready to dethrone Silva?” NO ONE is beating Silva!

  10. 123 says:

    every1 els who is or was a top contender is being fucked over.. michael bisping, yushin okami, hector lombard, vitor belfort, tim boesch, alan belcher & even johny hendricks.. they are all fighting but chris weidman, nick diaz & chael sonnen get instant title fights.

    • some guy says:

      well 123 bisping lost to vitor, vitor lost to silva, and then jones, okami lost to silva, boesch lost to okami…. the MW division is all jacked up its a mess. i personally dont think weidman deserves a title shot, well let me rephrase that he isn’t ready for that title shot… i think they should set him up against belfort and go from there but either way you look at it no one is really ready to dethrone silva in the MW division… but you never know i guess?

  11. Mike says:

    He will look like EVERYONE ELSE once fighting Silva… Weak. He can look impressive against an injured Muno, but everyone will wonder what happen to him against silva and the answer is, Silva is 10x better and on another level.

    Weidman fans are worse than Sonnen fans.

  12. mean170 says:

    This guy has the worst fight i’ve ever seen beating Demian Maia(yeah i know short notice dropped 30lbs yeah yeah yea) and beats Munoz fresh off an injury and all of the sudden he’s going to beat Anderson? Bisping, Belfort, and Sonnon all would beat Weidman. That being said, I’d gladly watch the Spider abuse him. Make the fight Dana.

  13. drew says:

    there is no one on this earth that can be anderson silva, he could beat anybody on this planet besides maybe cane but hey if cane stood with anderson he would get caught like anyone else so ya overall probably no one can beat silva, no silva fans will be “butt hurt” as you haters like to say, hey man haters gon hate simple as that

    • Sasquatch says:

      LOL.. “he could beat anyboby on this planet”, so I guess you’ll be replacing Anderson’s poster on the ceiling above your bed with Weidman’s after he beats him hey. BTW just because someone thinks Anderson can be beat doesn’t make them a “hater”, I happen to be a fan of his (how could you not be) but I am not blinded by love.
