A big reason Chris landed so much was because Silva handed his chin on silver platter. That fight shouldnt be an accurate representation of Chris striking. He looked good Saturday but Vitor will strike more often with ill intentions. I dont Chris can take what Vitor will give him.

Vitor's dangerous, but Weidman is deceptively smooth on his footwork. The longer the fight goes, the more it is in Weidman's advantage. If he can avoid getting knocked out on his feet, I think he can wear Vitor down on the ground and finish him in the championship rounds.

Even a thermostat jungle lion does not stand a chance against Weed man's wrestling.

He got even better. See the Okami, Chael, & Bonnar fights. You remember Chael right? The guy who destroyed Silva for 4.5 rounds prior to the Vitor fight? Yea, well he finished him in the 2nd round a year after the Vitor fight.

Oh lemme guess, hurt ribs, wanted to submit him for big nog, clowning around, freak accident blah blah.

lol.

Sources say he is currently in the jungle trying to find lions to spar with.

Confidence will not be a factor in this fight, it's not something that either one of these guys lack. I think it will come down to Vitor not having good enough TDD and being put on his back and pounded out. He won't catch Weed Man in any subs.

lol.
He did get better technique but lost athleticism and cant take same punch.
Also, cant believe you mentioned Bonnar lol. Anyway, the fact of the matter is the Anderson that fought Chris is not the same that front kicked Vitor. Spin it however you like. Vitor is old but he hasnt been dropping his hands and taking punches willingly for the last six years. Also, he is more athletic than Silva. AND their styles are different Vitor is more aggressive than Anderson, i dont think Weidman will stand with Vitor if he can help it.
