Cormier is smaller and shorter than both weidman and silva with less reach, both of which are very large MW's. At MW cormier would beat both fighters, regardless of weight and I would love someone to disprove that. Silva had a hard time with Sonnen and hendos wrestling and you expect him to do what to Cormiers wrestling/grappling at any weight.
You can poll sherdog and ask which is a more impressive/tougher win for any fighter, Cormier or Silva and you would get your answer. Silva is and was always a flawed fighter, Cormier is not and is a much tougher fight and win than Silva.
As I said, if Jones beat Cormier, weidman would still be behind. In terms of accolades Silva is superior but if you poll who is the superior fighter you would get your answer.
