Machida will outclass weidman, ees my opinion. If weidman comes out on top I'll be surprised. He'll prove all the non believers (myself included) wrong. Phone Post 3.0

This is compelling. The danger of a letdown by Weidman after years of chasing and preparing for Silva is very real. However, I have faith that everybody in Weidman's camp is well aware of this and ready for war. He does have a masters in psychology, afterall. And, Silva, actually got the worse of their mental battle, which is crazy ! The moment at the end of the staredown tells me Weidman is in Lyoto's head. This could be over already. Weidman has this standing, Muay Thai, or on the mat. He is creative, and can mix it up. He improves markedly every fight. Longo has Lyoto figured out. May go the distance, but if Lyoto knows he is losing due to takedowns he might mix it up in the fourth, get more aggressive, and Weidman gets him in 4 or 5. However, I have a sneaking suspicion something happens early, very early. I think Lyoto makes the same mistake as Anderson, and misjudges Weidman's reach, and gets hurt. Either way Weidman will land something on the ground and finish him in 2 by KO or submission.

Weidman lost Rd 1, IMO. Rd 2 isn't looking any better so far. Every time there's an exchange Machida lands and Weidman doesn't.

I'm gonna start this off by saying Lyoto is one of my top 5 favorite fighters of all time.

but MY GOD!! Weidman is like a more dangerous, 185 lb version of GSP (more dangerous in the fact that he is in KILL MODE, like young GSP). I picked him in both Silva fights, but my god his standup is top tier (I knew it was good, but he is GREAT!).
