Weidman: I'm ready to become a champion


"I think I'm a great match-up for him and I'm excited for it. I still think he's the greatest of all time. I don't think we've seen him slow down too much. He got exposed with the wrestling, but I think that's happened in all his fights.

I'm expecting the best Anderson Silva that's ever been. This is definitely my toughest challenge, I'm fighting the greatest of all time. It's a dream match-up and I can't wait to meet the challenge ... and defeat it. I'm ready to become a champion."

If Weidman can lay and pray for 5 rounds...a big IF = CHAMPION.

With all of this talk of Anderson calling Dana and asking for another fight, and Weidman going in under the radar as arguably the biggest threat to Anderson's title since he fought Hendo, he just might do it.I'd rather have seen him have a tune-up fight first though, I feel like the layoff he's had might adversely affect his performance.

I really hope Weedman wins. Weidman is underrated in the looks department. Whoever is better looking,is who i will pull for.

He seems like a good guy but none of his fights that I've seen makes me even think he'll survive more than a couple of rounds with Silva but I wish him best of luck.
