Weidman: Silva is no super hero
Although watching him fight in the cage, Anderson Silva might lead you to believe that he is indeed a super hero, next opponent Chris Weidman knows better thank to think that way:
“You have to treat him like just another opponent,” Weidman told Yahoo! Sports. “You respect what he’s done in this sport. Of course you do. But you can’t get caught up in it.
“Guess what? He’s a person just like I am, he’s got two arms, two legs, two eyes, like I do. I’m not fighting a superhero, I’m fighting another person, and it’s my job to defeat him. Simple as that.”
