Weidman: I’d Still Beat Him Again
“I’m not here to change other people’s opinion but I’ll tell you one thing: he did not give me the belt, he did not throw the fight. It was nothing like that. He was doing exactly what he does in all his fights. He had his hands down, he was trying to mentally defeat me, make me freeze, make me feel like I didn’t deserve to be in the ring with him. I didn’t want to let him do that. I wanted to put him in his place, and that’s it. I think he’s still unbelievable, I think he’s still the greatest of all time, and I think I’d still beat him again.”
While a guest on today’s edition of “The MMA Hour” newly crowned middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, told host Ariel Helwani that he can repeat history with another victory over Anderson Silva should the two rematch.
