    I agree 100% with Spider. Weidman doesn’t deserve a shot with Anderson yet. Let Weidman prove to us, the fans, that he’s for real and here to fight, THEN give him a shot with Silva. Just as a game of Chess, you can’t just shoot straight at the King; You first must take out the pawns. What does everyone else think?

      Think hard about who else it should be then………………………
      now realize who the number 1 contender was…………………….. now look at how easy Weidman beat the number 1 contender……………………who should get the shot some guy we know silva will beat or a real challenge …..Weidman is a real challenge

      • Joshua says:

        Munoz was the #1 contender in his mind because he said he was. he was trying to convince everyone else by saying it out loud. You dont become a #1 contender by beating a medicated Leben haha

    How bout you let the UFC decide Andy boy!

    • Mellow says:

      No the UFC makes shitty calls. Sonnen, Diaz & Edgar got undeserving title shots it needs to stop. Chris hasnt done much. only top fighter he beat was Munoz.

    • Scotty says:

      UFC does decide on all of his opponents but Silva can have an opinion about it.. The fight will most likely happen and Silva will fight him, win like he always does and then go home.. Silva just wants the big fights as his career is coming to an end, reason he wants the super fights cause its a big payday and exciting..

    • miro says:

      how about you shut the fuck up cocksucker?

    Silva does this undeserving shit everytime. He and his management use it as a ploy to get better PPV deals!! UFC will sweeten the deal and Silva would fight his mother for the right price. He probably doesn’t want to fight anybody until they put together a Jones fight if it happens. If Weidman or anybody else beats him before that, then there goes the amount he can make with a Jones fight. Silva knows Weidman has a real good chance of beating him up.

  4. Big Daddy says:

    Very true! They need to make jones vs silva instead. Screw everyone else

  5. magoo says:

    Yea that would really suck,if an undeserving no name…. who the hell does this guy think he is!,goes in there and beats the so called goat of mma!! What a riot that would be… Lol you Silva dick riders wouldn’t be able to sleep,eat, or work for weeks! You’d be calling it a fluke, or Anderson just wasn’t himself…. Bottom line is Andy and his manager sore ass know this! Weidman is twice the fighter Sonnen is and if this fight happens ur all gonna be saying….what the fukc!

  6. Levi says:

    AS by TKO over Weidman!

  7. 123 says:

    chris weidman has got a better chance than any1 at middleweight.. he doesn’t just believe he will beat anderson silva, he believes he will finish him.. this fight needs to happen, cant wait.

  8. Dick Diaz says:

    8-0 Chris Weidman… doesn’t deserve a title shot…

  9. Dee says:

    Once again people are idiots. Anderson Silva’s english sucks. He wasn’t saying Weidman wasn’t a worthy opponent, he was trying to say he doesn’t have anything to gain from this fight, yet Weidman has the world to gain. He said it’s a good fight for Weidman but not for him. People are idiots. drawing to conclusions without watching the video. I clicked on the video and Anderson didn’t even mention Weidman, so I went to youtube to look it up. This is why this country is falling apart because people lack critical thinking skills

    • BringFitchBack says:

      Dude , you give this guy way too much leeway. He whines about every person he fights. When he says it is not good for him, WHAT he is saying is that there is a high risk of the old man losing and not making much money. He wants a high-profile fight to make money dude. If that is the case then he should just relinquish the belt and just fight superfights. Otherwise, shutup and defend your belt with the next guy in line!! Where did you get your critical thinking from? California?

      • GRT 3000 says:

        it’s what he’s done and has always done, and he keeps beating the living shit out of all of his opponents. give em’ a real fight for fuck sakes. who wants to pay $50 beans to watch Andy 1st round slap the shit oughta this so called contender.

      • Dee says:

        If you were 38 and dedicated your whole life to a sport and you know that you’re basically almost out of it wouldn’t you want to make big money? Why should have to relinquish his title when he all he wants to do is make money. If Weidman goes out there and beat a couple of big names then it would be a big fight for him. That’s all I or maybe AS been saying. Let this guy build up his hype so that it would be worth it. Why can’t Weidman or the average MMA fan understand that? Simply go out there and fight and create a buzz rather than sit on your tweet all day.

        • BringFitchBack says:

          I understand where you are coming from but you know what Silva is nothing but a fighter and he is not a king!! You know he acts like he is something special and should be able to dictate what he does. I disagree to a degree. I don’t blame him for looking for big fights, since he never really has been a big PPV draw. He doesn’t know how to promote himself. He’s so lucky he had Sonnen to fight because Sonnen made him more money than he has ever made and he barely survived the fights with Sonnen. I think Silva should get ready for the next fighter in line for the MW title and fight whose next. If he wants to make suoerfights, then retire undefeated and fight superfights. This guy is nothing but a fighting entertainer. He’s not a genius, he’s not making civilization better or more advanced, This fuckin; dude hits people and gets hit by people and does it the best at his weight for now. That’s it!! If he is too old to fight for the belt, then he needs to fuckin’ retire. These fucking prima donnas need to be put in line. I’d like to see Dana fire one of them to shake’em up. I know this is his way of negotiating but please quit whining and fight.

  10. 123 says:

    sorry im not even american but what has a few fans with opinions got to do with you’re country “falling apart”.. any1 with a brain knows chris weidman has more to gain than anderson silva.

    • Dee says:

      The country is falling apart because people are not thinking outside the box. The media can post anything they want yet the masses refuse to investigate, ask questions, or think critically. That’s my point. This is just another example on such a small scale.

      • BringFitchBack says:

        You’re right. People seem to be a little lazy these days. Using intelligence to decide who is trying to manipulate you is very important. Just look at this last election and all the druelers who voted for Santa Clause Obummer. If they would have been a bit critical, they would see this dude is nothing but a criminal liar.

  11. Joe silva says:

    Weidman could beat silva, but silva could fuck weidman up. At this point I just wana see silva vs. bones. Rashad should drop down to 185 and fight weidman for the #1 contender spot.

  12. Rashad? says:

    I think what makes more sense at this point is weidman vs belfort. Belfort beat bisping, who was gonna be the next contender. So maybe belfort is the best way to prove weidmans skills. if he can get through him then the title shot would be more well deserved. And if he doesn’t then silva vs belfort 2 would be kinda cool to watch. It’s not like gsp or jones are gonna be available to fight anytime soon.

  13. confucius says:

    people please explain why you think weidman has a chance of beating THE GREATEST FIGHTER OF ALL TIME? Sure weidman is undefeated but hes beat a bunch of nobodys. Are we justifying his entire Hype on the finish of munoz? ill repeat that…weidman is getting a shot because he beat one fighter weve heard of. (i dont count that shitty ass damien fight either) I think chris is biting off alot more then he can chew. I personally dont care to see silva fight anybody at MW anymore. He just needs a superfight or two and then retire.

  14. chobocop says:

    anderson has some decent english!

  15. Dddddddd says:

    Man it’s a fantastic story that Anderson has to make his legacy so worth while that a fighter five times as deserving as he was when he got his title shot off of a win from arguably the biggest meathead in the sport can make someone as hardworking and deserving as Wiedman irrelevant.
    Bring that belt back to America baby! And choke out the idea that an impressive run should be more protected than the integrity of the sport.
