    Weidman has said this multiple times in past interviews before. IMO, no matter how good of a striker you are, everyone can be knocked out

    You're right in the sense that anyone can be KO'ed. Anderson is such a creative striker, but, it takes him a bit to get started. You have to pressure him. If you give him time as many have done, it ends quickly.

    Weidman has become one of the most annoying fighters. The guy has one "big" win and he's talking like he's cleared out the division. Can't wait till Silva puts this guy in his place.

    All hes going to do is look to counter strikes that lead to take down attempts. He won't come out as the aggressor, hes going to wait it out until he builds enough confidence to strike Anderson and or take him down. He is simply planning to steal the vote from the judges by point fighting lol.

    The guy who fought maia was not a competent striker and not having long to prepare did not affect that a whole lot.

    Weidman doesn't hold a candle to Belfort on the feet and look what happened to him.

    This, I also think there really are no Weidman fans tbh...only Silva haters that put all there hopes and dreams of seeing Silva get beat into the form of Weidman.

    Or fans of anyone who's been KO'd by Anderson, and that's a pretty large group.

    Not only can he avoid the KO, he could possibly KO Anderson

    I have never been as terrified this much leading into a fight :(

    He is overrating himself... The division is at a stand still because know one can sell the fight for the next title shot.

    I wouldn't go that far. He needs to focus on takedowns, takedowns, takedowns and more takedowns to have ANY chance of winning this fight
