    So from what I understood from his interview with MMA Crazy Weidman is actually injured but is getting better. His next fight should be sometime in the summer. Who should he fight next ? I'm running for Uriah Hall. He's coming of a win and it would be a fun scrap + it's winnable for Weidman.

    There's also this Brazilian upcoming Antonio Carlos jr kid who beat Boetch. Or he the winner of Branch/Hermansson. But I'd prefer Uriah Hall. What's your pick ?

    He needs someone lower ranked. I don't like the guy, but having so many consecutive concussions is just not healthy

    Uriah is lower ranked. Tailor made for him IMO. If he can't get past him he's kinda done at this level.

    Anderson again? haha! I don't know, someone who is top 10 for sure but not top 5 I think.
    Made a video on the upcoming interim title fight if anyone wants to watch it!

    A better question would be who weidman thinks he should fight next, and that guy will say he deserves a title shot.

    Apparently, he's been specifically requesting top-rated guys because he had success in all of his losses. He needs to fight 2-3 fringe top 10-15 guys before he goes anywhere near elite competition again.

    Not necessarily. Uriah is the kind of guy that could lose to really terrible fighters but at the same time could pull off something crazy against almost anybody. I mean if he loses a competitive decision against Hall tho then yeah... call it quits.

    He fought all killers, and he beat Gastelum.

    Will Brunson be an easy fight for him?

    Weidman is pretty much done. But the man is highly delusional, as soon he gets one win he asks for a ts. Silva is a good match up, cause they are both way both washed up. If he can't beat 44 yo Silva whos had many cons losses, he has no business in the fighting game.
