Weidman was proving the first fight was no fluke. I was pretty impressed with the second fight until it ended so unfortunately.

Weidman is a world class fighter. I'm not a fan, but any person with a shred of objectivity would acknowledge he has the talent to hang at the top of the division.

lol, that might have been a little worse than a "cracked shin."

It literally looked the exact same as every other round between then when it was standing.

Silva was being hesitant and Weidman was controlling the distance/octagon. Silva landed ONE leg kick in the second round. The other two were checked.

How is that "getting interesting?"

Well, you know, he is, kinda, the champ.

This. I look forward to watching Lyoto stuff Christ Weidman's takedowns while picking him apart on the feet.

Will also say... If Christ Weidman can finish Machida I will consider CW a 1000 percent legit champion with the potential for a career legacy as long and significant as was Anderson's.

I disagree. I think in the first fight he was shook so to speak.
Weidman's gnp got to him and he became emotional.
His antics were really out of control.
