UFC Middleweight Chris Weidman | I will Fight And Finish Anderson Silva

“I’m looking to hopefully get closer to getting that belt…I think with a full camp I would finish him (Anderson Silva). Obviously I’m not fighting Anderson Silva next but if I was that would be my prediction. I’m confident with myself, you have to be as a fighter. Obviously I have a lot of respect for Anderson Silva I think he is awesome.”

UFC Middleweight Chris Weidman talks about his last fight against Demian Maia and a hypothetical match up with Anderson Silva.

    hahahaha This guy should be a comedian.

  2. the original steve says:

    i doubt it. but i just want anyone to beat silva at this point so good luck.

  3. Mr. Truth says:

    Poor guy is on drugs.

  4. Fighter Fix says:

    Much respect for the guy, especially being a New Yorker, but I think he needs a few extra notches on his belt before he takes a crack at the p4p king.

  5. Oregon Dude says:

    Uuuuum yeah, ok…

  6. Mr.Rusk says:

    Dude you were gettin tagged by maia of all people, shut up

    • cheez pono says:

      dude, was trading stirkes with maia, and couldn’t do nothing with it. WTF, now he’s talking about a. silva.
      Henderson, please knock this guy the f*ck out.

  7. Tom says:

    Delusional after his poor very poor performace with Damian

    • MJ says:

      he took the fight on 11 days notice and cut 30lbs, poor preformance? I’m not sayen he would or wouldn’t beat Silva, but he is a bad match up for Silva and so is Munoz or Chael or any elite wrestler, Anderson is 37 and age gets everyone eventually.

      • Gerald says:

        again the issue with anyone fightin Anderson is his range and his accuracy. Anderson can fight at all ranges and has decent Take down defense. mainly because of his length. and when Chael fights Anderson again you will see a different fighter in Anderson. Chael has released a more serious Anderson. look for the fight to be over in the late 2nd early 3rd.

  8. Tim says:

    Uhhh does anyone even give a damn?

  9. spiritsplice says:

    Keep fighting like you did against Maia and you will never be good enough to fight Bisping.

  10. James says:

    Let him fight Vitor to get to Anderson. Bet he gets his lights cut off.

  11. CanILive says:

    Weidman presents more problems to Silva than Chael ever could…

    heard it here.. weidman is the future of the MW division…

  12. andyboy says:

    Thanks a lot Chael! now you got complete nobodies callling out Anderson to try n make a name for themselves. Chael did it in a funny ass manner and it worked, there will neve rbe another Chael Sonnen in this sport, dude was a white Ali, but without the record or skill to back it up LOL!

  13. Has Weidman been tested for L.S.D?

  14. GRT 3000 says:

    Everyone’s on the hype train now – nice try pal, but MMA fans aren’t retarded.

  15. Ricardo says:

    To all the people hating on him..
    Well, what is he suppose to say?
    “Oh! Anderson would knock me out”..???
    No, it’s called being CONFIDENT. He is a fighter, unlike all of you internet thugs that have never even set foot in a gym at all.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      So, if you have never trained in MMA you don’t deserve to have an opinion? MMA would have close to no fans if that were the case. You don’t know who trains and who doesn’t here.

    • Shawn says:

      There’s confident, and there’s cockiness. This guy hasn’t even fought any top tier MWs. That’s a pretty bold statement there. And there are veterans who have experience in BIG fights, that don’t make statements like that. That was plain self promotion, to get it out there. Don’t be too quick to get to the top, cuz it’s a hard fall down. And yes, I’ve been training a long time. Even if I know I can beat a guy, I don’t make a point of saying so. The most I would say, and others have said it as well…”It will be a good fight, against one of the best. Looking forward to it.”

    • Xaninho says:

      He is not ready for Anderson Silva and there is no shame in just being honest and say so. Instead he starts talking total cocky bullshit, so we’re allowed to make comments on his and your bullshit.

      What makes you think you know how many years of martial arts training any of us has?

  16. haychdubbya says:

    save the hash tags for twitter

  17. magoo says:

    I hope you can!

  18. chris says:

    I like Chris Weidman and I hope he does finish Anderson…but Chaels got Silvas number.

  19. ramv says:

    This one is worse than Sanchez…

  20. jdubx says:

    he will be the future MW champ, yea his fight against maia was terrible, but when you have to fight someone on short notice (pretty sure every fight weidman has had in the UFC was on short notice except for one) and he had to cut so much weight… he took it to a top level guy after doing all of that? give him credit when it’s due, i want to see this guy take on a top level guy with a full camp… he would destroy anyone.

  21. Jujitsu Player says:

    Weidman is no joke but there are a few guys ahead of him in line to fight Silva and based on the Maia fight which was admittedly was taken on short notice he needs to improve or Silva would run through him. Definitely a future contender at MW. Right now I think Bisping, Munoz, Chael and Belfort would all have too much for him.

    • MJ says:

      I agreed, but taking the fight on 11 days notice and the 30lb weight cut we should cut him some slack about his preformance, I think Bisping or Munoz should be next and if he beats one of those guys he should be within 1 fight from the shot at the 185lb belt.

  22. 4jacks says:

    Watch the interview people. Just ready his quotation makes it seem like he’s trying to call out Anderson Silva. He’s not. He was asked by the interviewer how he would do against Anderson Silva. He answered the question well and he’s a good fighter.

  23. Lino says:

    this guy must still be delusional from that weight cut, he beat a guy with NO STANDUP and know he saying he can finish ANDERSON, child please.

  24. strictly mma says:

    The dude is fucking stupid. He like shit with maia. No matter how much weight he cut his stand up was fucking sorry.

  25. strictly mma says:

    I had respect for wiedman, not anymore. the dude is a fucking idiot.

  26. lmao says:

    cocaine is a hell of a drug this guy needs tested lol. he beat mia now he thinks hes top of the food chain! fact. sonnen, vitor, and bisping would beat this guy he needs at leat 3 more big wins before even talking about title shot and saying he could finish silva is a joke the best guy to do that is vitor and look what happened to him, silva will retire champ and it will be a 3 way division with sonnen bisping and vitor at the top

  27. #no wwe in mma says:

    Chael lovers better hope he brings a lil more than he did against “Pip” when he struts into Rio. My bet is he will be carried out with his eyes rolled back in his head.

  28. Shawn says:

    LOL! Highly doubt that son. Especially if you fight the way you did with Maia. You need more practice.

  29. KIDD433 says:

    WEIDMAN IS A CAN! and shouldn’t even be in the same sentence as Anderson or VITOR
