Lots of people explain that Weidman has looked amazing in all of his fights before getting KO'd. Then they're met with trolls replying "oh, so he was winning before he lost" thinking it makes them mega intelligent. But the reason people point this out is to show that the skillset is still there. There are adjustments Weidman needs to make, for sure, but overall, on a technical level, he still has shown the potential to be the champion in every single one of his losses. Rockhold everybody knwos he pulled a chael sonnen in a close fight that cost it for him. Jacare he was showing a really solid jab in and showing top level footwork. Romero he was picking apart before the explosive KO. All of these he's demonstrated he still has the skillset, he just needs to be more mindful of his defense. Oh yeah he choked out Kelvin btw, who almost beat Adesanya in a decision loss. But when WEIDMAN beat him, he was just a "bloated welterweight".
