Interesting Fact: Chris Weidman Beat Both Phil Davis & Bader in Collegiate Wrestling

UFC on Fox is this Saturday, and both fighters are on the main card (Weidman vs. Maia / Davis vs. Evans). Weidman & Davis (27 year-old) are two of the best MMA prospect in the world.
I'm a wrestling fan so I thought it will be interesting to point out that Chris beat Ryan Bader (2006) and Phil Davis when he was wrestling at Hofstra University.

-> Phil Davis: 4time NCAA Division I All-American (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) + NCAA Division I Champion (2008)
-> Chris Weidman: 2time NCAA Division I All-American (2006, 2007)
-> Ryan Bader: 2time NCAA Division I All-American (2004, 2006)






Weidman, Bader and Davis back in 2006.

Weidman is one of the best college wrestlers the UFC has ever brought in.

Still, he is going to need to be careful on the ground with Maia. Maia is a whole level above him in grappling.

Weidman is a grappling beast that competed in ADCC, Chael is Chael...

he was on Helwani's show last year and this was mentioned. Don't think he'll want to hang on the ground with maia but he's definitely a great prospect
