    Source: Chris Weidman: "If I get my hands on Anderson Silva, it's game over."

    I have come to the conclusion Anderson Silva is an alien and can't be put unconscious, but I do believe Weidman would out wrestle him for five rounds and beat him. He is a better version of Chael Sonnen who gave Silva trouble in the past.

    Hopefully Weidman vs. Silva is announced. Is the fight fan's want to see! I know i do.

    This is the match I want to see as well. Hopefully it gets made in 2013.

    bisping will get the next shot and that's IF he beats Belfort, which I doubt he will.

    The spider will wait.

    Idk. Silva weakness is takedowns, and Weidman has one of the best at middleweight.

    no it's not. Why do people constantly say this? Anderson has very good takedown defense.

    I have yet to see this guy fight, and I don't expect him to be that good. But we'll see.

    There are no shortage of contenders at 185 right now, with Bisping and Belcher. Weidman needs a high profile win over someone for this fight to sell and therefore for him to get the shot.

    Only ammo Silva haters have. Too bad it shoots blanks.

    I love how Anderson Silva threats have devolved to "If i can actually make physical contact with him..."

    Chael is a better wrestler than Weidman and has twice the gas tank. Weidman would slow down and get koed in the champion rounds IMO, if he even makes it that far I have yet to buy into the Weidman hype he looked good against Munoz but Munoz is another guy I have always thought to be highly overrated

    Weidman is not ready for Anderson, he can hype himself up till we're all blue in the face, but Anderson is on a completely different level. Weidman should fight someone better than mark Munoz before he starts making claims like that.

    He barely outstruck Maia & destroyed Munoz.

    Short & simple he's the next "great white hope" since Sonnen failed...twice.
