Weidman vs. Rockhold

I think both fighters are the future of the middleweight division and I expect them to fight more than once in their careers. This is a fight I would love to see but the questions I ask are...

Who would win now?

Who will develop into the better fighter in the future?

Bad match up for Rockhold. He's like a better Bisping. He would be dominated in the ground and Weidman would get an UD.

They can fight each other in a couple months, when they'll both be coming off losses.

When have you ever seen Luke "dominated" in the ground"? MMA or grappling? Do some research son!

I see as equal to Bisping. Rockhold has never impressed me. Not that he cares what I think.

I think Weidman would win now and Weidman will end up being the better fighter. The wrestling sets him apart.

This, Jacare was able to takedown Rockhold more than once in their fight(not saying Jacares wrestling is bad as it's actually really good but Weidmans IMO is better) and Weidmans stand-up at this point is probably good enough to hang with Rockhold standing up.
