Weidman: I can feel that belt

 

Chris Weidman has the daunting task of fighting Anderson Silva for the UFC Middleweight Championship on July 6th in Las Vegas. All who have gone befoe him in the UFC have failed, and some before even stepping in the cage by having the wrong mindset. You can't fight Anderson Silva to survive, you have to fight him to win, and that's exactly how Chris Weidman is approaching the fight:

Weidman's confidence two months out from the fight is not lacking. It's to the point, he said, that he can already visualize the belt around his waist.

"I do plan on winning, and when you have a goal you have to live from your goal," he said. "You have to really believe it's going to happen. I already believe and I can feel that belt. I've gone over in my head every type of scenario (in the fight), from being terrible to where it gets good, from fighting through adversity to picking him apart in every aspect of the game and come out looking like I'm the next great thing.

the reality is that even against a really good striker with footwork, if you have athleticism and decent defensive striking ability, getting the clinch is not that hard..look how many times dudes clinch in boxing or in k1 or in muay thai..the answer is ALL the time...stop watching jet li movies...people dont get knocked out with the first punch very often in fights
