"I just feel like some way or another, Anderson Silva is not fighting me," Weidman told MMAjunkie.com. "I honestly don't feel like it's going to happen."

"He can downplay me all he wants," Weidman said. "He can say whatever he wants about me, but I beat two top-5 guys in the world. Nobody has ever done that in the history of the UFC. Now I'm set to fight Dec. 29 agains Timt Boetsch, and that's going to be three top-5 guys in a row if I'm able to beat him. There's no one that's ever done that.

"I took a lot of risks to get where I am this short into my career. It's not like I just got here magically. I beat some good guys. I put myself in short-notice fights against top guys in the world. It's not easy, and I was hoping it would pay off and get my shot against Anderson, but he's ducking me."

"I know I can beat Anderson," Weidman said. "I got into this sport, and he was the champion at 185 pounds. He looked just as impressive then as he does now. I got into this sport knowing I could beat him from day one. I think I'm a terrible, terrible matchup for him. I think everybody knows it.

"I'm not getting my hopes up. I got my hopes up when they offered him the fight and they decided he wanted to wait until 2013 and not fight me. I'm just focused on Tim Boetsch on Dec. 29, and whatever Anderson Silva is going to do, he's going to do. I just hope the stars align and he accepts the fight when the time comes."

..WAT?

I'm not against Weidman fighting Anderson, but what the hell does he mean by that?? There's plenty of champions who have done that.

How many years has Anderson been beating top 5 opponents. Weidman will only get a shot as Anderson has cleared out the other top contenders.

I hope we don't have to hear the same thing from all of Silva's future opponents, but it looks like that's where this is going. Phone Post

This kid is starting to bug already..Its clear Anderson does not want to fight him. Do you think anderson cares that this kid is saying "hes ducking me"? No he laughs it off. Its a broken record and they all end up tangled in the spiders web, KO'ed, currled up, bloody, unconscious etc.. While anderson is smiling,laughing and joking at the press conference. With ZERO damage.. Phone Post

I think the biggest threats at 185 are Weidman and Belcher, but from Anderson's perspective neither would be considered a big enough name to take the risk. It could be viewed as ducking, but in reality it's just being pragmatic. He doesn't need to fight everyone who calls him out. He's the legend so he calls the shots.

He's not ducking Weidman. He's ignoring Weidman.

The difference? You duck people who pose a threat to you. You ignore people who pose a threat to themselves.

Most sites did not have Maia still top 5 by then.

He has one top 5 win. It was perfect to pair him against boetsch for the true #1 contender.

Anderson will fight him if that's what surface wants. Surface wants the GSP fight more than weidman IMHO. If GSP doesn't happen it will be weidman. Phone Post

Nice. Never thought about that way.

I still Anderson should fight Weidman bc Chris is the best of who's left at MW. After last night I want to see the jones/silva fight. Phone Post

Tim Boetsch and Chris Weidman need to STFU with all the Anderson hate. There is no point in me listing all of Andy's accolades you wouldnt be on this site if you didnt know them. Neither of them is a draw, and while I acknowledge Weidman has skills that would pose a threat to Andy, that does not mean he has not already faced sterner tests in his career. Weidman could prob take silva down but just like everybody else he will get stuck in the spider's guard.

Boetsch on the other hand has no fucking chance whatsoever. Too slow, should have lost his last two fights. Get real Tim!

I understand that he feels slighted and I'm not unsympathetic, but imo enough already, some people are going to start calling him Chris Whineman(even if he's responding to questions). He has a fight scheduled, and if Anderson SIlva continues to be on his lips, Tim Boetsch better be on his mind .

Boetsch sucks! Weidman will do the same shit he did to Munoz. Chris is way too quick and a much better grappler. He'll get a quick takedown, look for subs then throw strikes while Boetsch tries to defend. If that doesnt work he'll use his speed on the feet and work range. Yes Timmay is big but it wont work against Weidman

if you're so much smarter than me please explain? Boetsch was outgrappled by Lombard and Okami.
