Don't know, but I'm expecting this to be a snoozer, my guess is Weidman takes it to the ground as soon as he can and tries to ride a top control atrocity. I'm guessing Te Chris is going to GSP the place up with a careful risk free game plan.
Weidman beat Anderson while he was untouchable not the current guy and Weidman also was winning rounds against Rockhold and Romero before making a mistake and getting finished
But this isn't two fights ago. Two consecutive losses will change the odds significantly for any fighter.
Chris lost the first 3 rounds against Rockhold and then got finished in the 4th...
It's going to be a razor thin/split decision. People forget how good The Chris is but Mousasi is on a great run right now. Whoever has the better night wins. I think they cancel each other out.
After Weidmen's last two Ls Id say it makes sense. Cant wait to see Mousasi bury him for good.
Of course it does - I totally agree! I guess I just don't believe Chris has diminished as much as those 2 losses seem to have moved the odds, but everything in MMA is what have you done for me lately.
I agree with it, Gegard Mousasi's striking is better and his ground game is not bad, he will win.
Yeah, Moose will ko him.
No... The loss to Rockhold was deserved, Rockhold is easily a top middleweight by any definition. Weidman was doing just fine against Romero before he ducked into that knee. Without that, he likely would have won the fight.
Mousasi is going to lose this one badly. I'd favour Weidman against Romero again as well. Vs. Jacare or Rockhold it's a tossup.
You may be right... I won't say, unless I have prof, that a guy "used". I do remember hearing Weidman say that his test levels were really low.
Yes I do. Mousasi is a better fighter everywhere, except for wrestling.
Hasn't looked the same since USADA and Weidman was quite alot smaller against Rockhold compared to his previous fight before that.
Hope he proves me wrong though because he still is my boy.
Weidmans losing, Gegards winning. Nuff said.
I think their recent performances have to be considered. Other than getting caught with a freaking flying knee by Hall, which he avenged, Mousasi has been doing pretty damn well for the past few years. Weidman's only losses were recently to top tier opponents, but those were also some pretty nasty ways to lose. Bizarre how both of their worst recent losses were to savage flying knees out of nowhere.
Chris is going to be on a 3 fight losing streak.
I was kinda thinking the same thing and Moose has struggled with wrestlers....however, those were the days when wrestlers could juice to the gills and Moose has looked infallible in USADA era and Teh Chris looks like a totally different person. Maybe it is just he has a harder time without the IV, like Hendricks, but it is undeniable that he was one of these fighters that certainly seemed to have "worked on his cardio" alot.
Different weigh ins - he had to weigh 185 in the second pic and was rehydrated facing off vs Yoel at the show/fake weigh ins.
We're living in a world were Weidman was dumb enough to fight Yoel Romero coming off of spinal surgery. The turnaround was ridiculously too soon.
So The Chris literally has neck surgery in June and fights YOEL ROMERO in November. He probably should have just been returning to full contact sparring in November, not fighting one of the best guys in the world.
That leaves us with a Chris Weidman who's less than a year removed from spinal surgery, riding a two fight losing streak. I can't imagine his physical body and mental state being in a great place.
In my mind no doubt the best Chris beats the best Moose. Seems entirely unlikely we ever see a 100% Chris Weidman again though.
