 Vitor is a draw whereas your boy weidman half the fans dont even know  his last name and about 5% even know his first name...Going to a decision with Maia a guy who had to cut weight or get cut and munoz...is not even deserving of a title shot with Spyda...Munoz lost to okami ...Vitor ran thru Franklin which is better than any of Weidmans wins.

I never want to see a Belfort/Silva Re-match. There's no need because of how their 1st fight ended and that Silva is on the verge of retiring.

 What has Vitor done to deserve a fight with Wiedman? Wirdman just defeated two top 10 opponents in a row. Where as Vitor hasnt done shit at MW since defeating Lindland in 09. Vitor gets almost everything handed to him including his title shots.

I really think Weidman is good, and probably top 5 in the middleweight division, but he only beat Munoz, and Maia. Now he is ready for Anderson? Chael went through a buzz saw of contenders to get to Anderson, and now Weidman is #1 contender, because he barely beat Maia, and he destroyed an overrated Munoz? Vitor is the perfect matchup for him. Not only does it confirm his rank, but a dominating performance leaps him to the top of the division.

Hard to argue with that kind of stat matrix.  Thanks for adding an intelligent point of view to these rants.

I'm sure you understand what "ducking" means. Just because someone challenges doesn't mean you have to accept. There is nothing to be gained by fighting Vitor. Not only is no one going to buy that PPV, Vitor is not going to ever beat Anderson. He is simply trying to stay relevant.
