He didn't look too invincible vs Sonnen, imo. Maybe that's why he wants no part of Weidman.
I know half you guys think he can cleave through rocks, but obviously he doesn't have that opinion of himself or he'd have properly moved up to LHW by now or called out any actual good fighters (ie not Bonnar, Bisping, Rockhold, Cung etc).
I don't think he's invincible, he can be beaten. Wrestling is his obvious weakness and sonnen showed that. He can be submitted too. But the fact that he took the beating for 4 rounds and won the way he did really impressed me. He fought the best wrestler in the division twice and beat him. Then he clowned okami. You might say Okami is overrated but hes still a good fighter, better than what silva made him look like.
I know he doesnt always fight world beaters but he has proven how good he is imo. Weidman is probably a bigger threat than Sonnen, silva needs to fight him in his next few fights or it doesnt look good. But he has no obligation to fight Jones, just like GSP has no obligation to fight him.
