Weidman is a great Champ for the UFC (Marketing)

Weidman knocked out Silva, all the brazillians are mad, they want to see him lose.

Now Weidman also dominated their best guy after Anderson the next Brazillian fighters who'll challenge Weidman could be Vitor and Jacare.

So Weidman will sell big time.

So he's going to sell big time based on a market that gets the fights for free? Or am I underestimating the Brazilian population in the States?

Seriously, the only people that have anything negative to say about Weidman(fighting style, where he ranks p4p, marketability, etc) are just really bitter Silva/Brazilian fans or part of the pathetic anti-American crowd.

Sucks for them, tbh. lol

He's a great fighter but not very charismatic. He will not be the next ppv-star. Sorry to burst your bubble.

You got a point. He is not the guy you really are eager to see. But as a fighter i have to give him much credit after fight with Lyoto...

Agreed brother, Weidman is incredible and will become an even bigger star

Or, instead of Brazilians wanting to see him lose. They will simply stop watching. Weidman will never be a star.

it's sort of funny, most champs have not been charismatic. ever watch chuck or anderson be interviewed? jones is grating and not likeable. randy was fundamentally a boring fighter, but came off as likeable over time--a lot of it had to do with him being the perennial underdog and often getting the win. sonnen (never a champ) was both a boring fighter and a boring presence until he learned to lay it on thick--then he became a boring fighter who convinced everyone he was not boring. i don't find hendricks remotely charasmatic. bendo--boring personality and even a bit off-putting to many.

He is charismatic in his own way not a may weather trash talking type but a humble funny guy
