Weidman: ‘I haven’t shown my true self yet’


Chris Weidman is undefeated in mixed martial arts and has defeated the greatest fighter of all-time...twice. However, Weidman still believes his best is to come:

“I feel like it’s been a very long time, but in actuality it hasn’t been that long. But I feel like I’ve been doing this forever,” he said. “I started in 2009 – that’s when I started training. I’ve had two surgeries where I was out for at least a year, another I was out three or four months, another that had me out three or four months … I’ve only actually been training for two or two and a half years, which is crazy. I’m very new, but it feels like forever.

“I have a lot to learn and a lot of things I do in practice that I haven’t been comfortable enough to do in the octagon yet. I haven’t shown my true self or true style yet. I’m excited to be able to do that over time. Experience is the main thing I’m working on.”

Why would it be fear and not smart game planning?

Weidman is the new John Jones.The new Sakuraba...Wait till he gets a hold of the Phenom. Wait till Vitor Belfort - the J. Jones and Saku of his time - feels the wrath and fury of Weidman.Tasty enchiladas, my friends!Very big plate o' scrumptious MMA enchiladas!

Weidman is a beast. Anderson got beat let's face it. I'm not a big silva fan but he was getting older, most likely slower. But Chris beat him twice in great fashion. If silva didn't break his leg in the second the fight would if been a drawn out beating for him. Chris is going to put a beating on TRT Vitor too!
