Weidman: Silva would be a fool not to respect me as a fighter


Chris Weidman: I've been dreaming about this fight with Anderson Silva since I started MMA. 

He makes you pay for any mistakes you make. He's opportunistic. Probably his biggest threat is his confidence. You make one mistake...he's in there to win, and so I am. He's a great champion for a reason, but he knows I'm a really mad matchup and that I'm a tougher opponent than some people might understand.

I'm a pressure based fighter. I'm going to be walking forward, using my length, and mixing it up between my takedowns and my punches. You know, I'm not going to be going backwards too much.

He'd be a fool not to respect me as a fighter. On July 6th, when we step into that cage, he's going to have respect for me.

Really. Is that why decided not to renegotiate the contract?

I think he's been hit in the head too many times.

He's promoting a fight...Thats part of his job. The only difference is he's publicly saying what other guys that fought Anderson were thinking. No one goes into a fight thinking they're going to lose.Anderson will respect him as a fighter. Until he realises Weidman has nothing for him. He does this every fight.

Yes of course! Because Munoz walked into one, it will happen to Anderson!

Looks like Weidman is trying to convince himself. Deep down, he knows he's probably gonna get knocked out.
