The fight tonight has the possibility to be less competitive than the Silva/Griffin fight. Very, very unlikely, but Anderson could KO him fast. Griffin lasted 3+ minutes, Leben lasted 49 seconds.

Actually, people are giving too much of a chance. Weidman is the most overhyped fighter in the history of MMA bar none. I have been watching MMA since the days of Marco Ruas and Dan Severn around 1995, and I have never seen a fighter with na unproven record be so highly favored in a fight against a belt holder with multiple defenses.

Well, we don't get the UFC company memos, that's for sure.

I would never say Weidman can't win, but just objectively any reasonable person has to admit that the odds are very much in Silva's favour.

I like Weidman, alot, but nothing has annoyed me more than seeing all these guys praise Weidman like he is the second coming of christ. He is a great fighter, and I'm sure he will be Middleweight Champion one day, But today isn't the day in my opinion. People forget how fighters change when Anderson hits them. Nothing can prepare you for the tenacity Silva's strikes bring. Chris is talking a big game, and I hope he brings it. But, I'm sure when Anderson lands flush on him, like everyone else, He'll realise why Anderson is considered the best ever.

Anderson via 2nd TKO.

I swear Im so tempted to put money on Weidman. Its so hard not to believe when everyone is telling you how great he is and then I look at the odds staring at me giving me 3 times the money I bet.

But I caught Rogan lying. In the Sonnen/Silva fight he said Sonnen was not afraid of Silva. He looked into his eyes and saw the first guy that had no fear. Then he said the exact same thing about looking into Weidman and he has no fear and this is the first fighter who hasnt against Anderson

The two most vocal groups leading up to a title fight are always the "Challenger has no chance" group and the "how will you react when the challenger wins" group. Plenty of people are understand that it is a fight and there is never 100% certainty on who will win but those people rarely make threads.

Bump because I told you Weidman's hype was real.
