People are making the same exact argument they made for Okami they are currently making with Weidman... -Okami had the ability to put Anderson on his back and had the type of tools on the ground that kept Sonnen from finishing the job. In effect, Okami was supposed to put Silva on his back and not only keep him there, but not get finished in the process. This same argument is now surfacing with a potential Weidman fight. People will inevitable say that Weidman is a more skilled wrestler than Okami which is indeed true...on paper. As far as functional MMA wrestling goes, Okami has faired much better and has demonstrated more functional grappling against better fighters over a longer period of time. So what will make the Weidman/Silva fight any different? Will Chris fair better on the feet? Nothing he has shown on the feet thus far would make me think otherwise. His fight with Maia was a sloppy kickboxing match and he didn't really look that much better than Maia on the feet. Unlike most Weidman haters, I will give him the Munoz fight, despite the fact that Munoz has never looked that impressive to me (but Munoz has won fights). That is all. I have mostly kept quiet during Weidman/Silva debates but wanted to make my points. I think Weidman is an interesting matchup but I think he needs a legit no.1 contender bout to secure it. I wouldn't even mind seeing the fight soon. I just don't see the same thing that many other people see.
