Weidman's Record (15-5)

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Deleted member 510653, Apr 22, 2021.

  1. It just looks so bad.. I mean 15 wins, that's it, and he's been around forever now.

    5 big losses with 3 title defenses, which is good for a mw, but that 5 losses overshadows the 15 wins, most of which are before he hit the tank.

    It's such a weird record.. I don't know what to say. He's got the 2 biggest wins in the company but yeah, 5 losses and I don't even know who that dude was he beat last year. It's crazy man.

    It's true that he has been remarkably inactive over his career. 12 year professional MMA career with 20 career fights. A bit of a weird record for sure, but it was largely a result of winning a UFC title in his 10th career MMA fight, which is super quick. Just about everyone's activity slows right down after they win the title. Of course he's had a bunch of injuries along the way too.

    Lost to the elite. A loss to hall would by far be his worst.

    Weidman is talentwise the best middleweight of all time. If he fought during Android's reign, he would have lasted longer at the top.

    MW division was incredibly, uncomparatively weaker compared to when Weidman was competing.

    He did fight during Anderson's reign and beat him... And saying Weidman would be more succesful during a weaker era makes it sound like he wasn't good enough to dominate the era he peaked in, which is true. Just sounds weak for some reason.

    It's amazing how one ridiculous attempt at a spinning kick doomed his career. The real blame is on Herb for letting him take an ungodly beating for like 3 minutes. He never recovered from that. I'm thinking Hall prob KO's him. He's too slow now, and can't take a shot.

    His 15 wins are as good as Khabib's 29 in terms of quality

    Real talk

    Agreed. Weidman's injury history is one of the worst in the UFC in terms of how often he's been sidelined over the years. The only other two I think have suffered more were Cain and Dom. I hope he retires after the Hall fight, win or lose.

    Hardly. Literally since before his career began it was a story of constant surgeries.
    People can hate on the Chris all they want but anyone has had major joint surgeries before know how ridiculously tough and mentally strong Chris is. His body must fucking hurt. Not to mention all the violent KOs.

    If Uriah Hall KOs teh Chris this weekend, I think someone like dana or Chris family seriously need to step in and do something. He's entering dangerous territory I think

    No doubt, he handed Rockhold an easy takedown and dominant position and got messed up for it. Was impressive he came out for the next round and while compromised, he tried to get back into the fight.

    Chris actually had a good chin before that. After that fight it seems to be average at best.

    If he loses to Hall he's gotta retire. If he wins he'll think he's back in contention and probably get starched again by whoever (Rob, Till, Vettori, Izzy) he fights next.

    Weidman is sort of Caine sque in terms of not really living up to his promise due to injuries.

    If he didnt get the lucky KO over an unmotivated Andy nobody would even know who Weidman is.

    Weidman's list of opponents is up their with Dan Henderson. Very little filler at all.

    Hes had 9 fight fallouts in his UFC career. 5 of those were from injuries he sustained and he also had a positive covid test. Hes had injuries in his hand, knee, shoulder, neck and ribs. He was consistently fighting twice a year until all these injuries happened.
