    Silva= i believe it would look like the okami fight but anderson more mobile and ending first rd because weidman believes in his improving striking too much

    Vitor= I believe a blitz from vitor would be too much for weidman unless he can get him down.. however unlike most ppl vitor is legit on the ground so i do not see weidman dominating there even though weidman is legit as well.. eventually i believe weidman would be over whelmed

    Bisping= this would be a back and forth fight however the very technical bisping does well against wrestlers.. he reminds me of a dos santos with less power... this would be grueling but in a 5 rd fight i think bisping can get the tko, or maybe a close decision

    palhares= styles make fights and even though he got killed tonight he has the style to beat weidman... his unorthodox bjj is normally too much for LEGIT LEGIT black belts who know what he's going to do. weidmans striking is on pars with palhares i believe. but eventually it could go to the ground where i believe palhares can get a leg lock

    Lombard= dudes always been a beast but i knew palhares couldn't take him down cuz his height or take his power. i believe this would be the biggest destruction of weidman of the ppl said earlier. power , judo, bjj.

    weidman can win these fight and i think he's a beast but these are the ppl i think can beat him. agree? disagree? add more ppl.

    All the Weidman hate from Silva because of a couple trolls.

    Palhares subs him? Really? You think Belcher has a better top game than Weidman?

    Anyone can beat anyone on any given night but I'd favor Weidman over anyone sans Silva.

    Add Belcher and possibly Boetsch to that list as well. K-1 Maia and Munoz in the stand up aren't good gauges of skill imo.

    I don't know about Palhares though...

    Don't know about Lombard either, Chris has displayed some good technical striking and I have my doubts about Hector and technical striking.

    I would probably only say Anderson and Bisping atm. I think Anderson KO's him and Bisping UD's him -- In A few years I'd say he probably takes Bisping and you never know when Anderson will slow down.

    I think he beats everyone you listed except for Silva.

    He outgrapples all of them dominantly, including Palhares who I think would be easily controlled by Weidman.

    Anderson can beat him. That's about it looking at it realistically. Okami has a good style to challenge him, but I think Weidman might be a level up.

    A Vitor blitz? Are you serious? Bisping will be forever a gatekeeper. Lombard's too stiff and would tire. Palhares? Wow. Why not throw in Chris Leben and Mark Munoz while you're at it?

    I was thinking Okami as well. He'd give him fits but I think Chris could take it home.

    Well Marquardt TKOed Paul Harris so I guess if he wanted to be a dick he could go back to MW and beat Weidman since everyone else seems like they can. Add MW Shogun too because he needs to get back on track and should fight Weidman for an easy win.


    Give me a break....

    are u serious, bisping is a gate keeper, when if he wins against the other guy u say isnt good (vitor) he gets a title shot... the gate keeper who many think beat the guy that almost beat anderson and is fighting jon jones next....smh

    youve never seen palhares grapple obviously, weidmans brave enough to grapple with him and has bad knees

    your a hater but its your opinion and i said CAN Beat weidman

    I think Weidman can beat Silva and once Silva accepts the fight we will see how good the kid is. Wiedman out-grappled Davis and Bader, the kid can out grapple Silva and make it a war on the ground.

    this is true thats why I didnt include the ground, however anderson can survive until he gets up, gets stood up, or the next rd

    Only person that can dump Okami is sonnen.

    weidman's wrestling is nowhere near sonnen's.

    The stand up is Silva's territory I agree

    but Contrary to Cheal, weidman swings elbows and has very good GNP and has good top control and good subs.

    I am hoping to see how he does when his time comes, hopefully we can see him fight silva before bisping or another Franklin fight.
