This could be a reverse Troll from Weidmann, waiting for Anderson to put his name in the hat, then Bam! Here comes a Healthy Chris Weidmann! Has there ever been a worse matchup in Championship fight history than Chris Weidmann is for Anderson Silva? Here is a guy whose style was created to defeat Anderson Silva. Chris is a wrestler with Sub defense which is Anderson Silva's kryptonite.

Chris Weidmann will be an All-Time Great when his career is wrapped up. He has dynamite in both hands , his headkicks are K-1 like , and his NCAA Wrestling translates perfectly to MMA. His domination of Mark Munoz, who is Anderson Silva's Wrestling coach was downright scary. Nobody has ever beat Mark Munoz as brutally as Chris Weidmann. He then beat Damien Maia on 3 days notice after cutting 40 lbs. Weidmann's style is Anderson's Kryptonite, who has never beat a true wrestler since his MMA career began besides a sub defense challenged Chael Sonnen . Weidmann Kimura'd Andre Galvao who is an ADCC level Champion blackbelt and almost tapped him when he was a blue belt. Now that Chris has a dark belt i see him dominating UFC fighters with his blend of Wrestling and grappling that has never before been seen in the middleweight division

I will be SHOCKED if he is back to training in 4 months. I read he had a SLAP tear and depending on the size of it 4 months to be back at full strength is extremely optimistic.For comparison purposes Rich Franklin, Anthony Pettis, and Diego Sanchez all had surgery on this same injury recently. Rich had the quickest recovery (I believe) and he was not back to training full speed until at least 6 months.Hopefully Weidman can prove me wrong.

Since that's his wife filming, I have kind of a funny random story regarding a family friend of Chris and his wife.....Back when Facebook was brand new, it was my sophomore year in college, I would just randomly friend request hot girls from random schools that I didn't go to...Anyways, this one chick I friended happened to go to Hofstra. Anyways, she was very very hot (Chris - incase you read this, her initials are BL and another clue is NY Jets).So I would often look at her pics since she was so hot. I remember seeing Chris Weidman before he became bigtime or probably even got into MMA in some of her pics, since was/is friends with him. This is circa 2004/2005.Neat story.

hahaha, man he is wonked.Pretty messed up that she's trying to put him on the spot while he's drugged and hooked up to monitering equipment, though.I was in the "Silva should be fighting Weideman" camp, but Chris might need a warm up fight before taking on the champ after shoulder surgery.
