Silva: We have to respect Weidman


Anderson Silva will undoubtedly be the favorite coming into his UFC 162 title defense against Chris Weidman, but that doesn't mean the champion is taking the challenger lightly:

"We have to respect Weidman," Silva told ( through an interpreter. "He's won some fights, and he's proven himself to be where he is. He's 10 years younger, and he's going to come in with a lot of cardio – a lot of power – and try to grapple, I'm sure. We've got to respect him. He's won some fights."

Oh, for sure. I didn't mean to come across as a doubter. I just can see this fight playing out the way it did for Silva's first fight w/ Chael without the Sub. Plus, I feel Chris is a little more focused on advancing position more than Chael. I feel Weidman can accomplish this for 5 rnds. but, I still think Silva can/will KO him. We'll see, it's a fun match up.

I imagine he is talking about current GSP. He's obviously in his prime.

When did GSP leave his prime? He may be less aggressive and have a different approach to fighting these days, but I don't really think GSP is out of his prime. He's still dominating legitimate number one contenders each and every fight.

I think he's trying to say GSP is the only one he's seen with the kind of takedowns to get Silva down at will.Although it kind of seems like common sense that if he can take him down at will he can win
