That was back when the MW division wasnt as stacked and leben was on a 5 fight win streak and got destroyed by silva.
Also you have to take in silvas accomplishments in other orgs as well.
Weidman has 9 fights total with only 2 legit wins. The division is much deeper with more talent now.
In your logic okami shouldve gotten several title shots as he has been hovering top 5 since forever.
Weidman seriously needs at least 1 more top win to get to silva depending on the performance.
Weidman vs lombard/okami/vitor
Plus im almost sure white said the winner of vitor/bisping would get a shot. But dana says a lot of things.
