I would have liked to see Weidman get Vitor to set him up for the title shot, but he is still recovering.

 

If Rockhold wins I could see the title shot going to him. If he loses, there is always Lombard if he beats Okami...

if Vitor beats Rockhold you gotta give him a rematch for the title.

1st rd KO over Akiyama
1st rd sub over Rumble
2nd rd TKO over Bisping
win over Rockhold..

they cant just use Belfort as the 1 to beat for a title shot for all those in line, thats just weird

So in essence is this a #1 contender-type match with the winner next in line? After or before Weidman?

Belfort probably needs another win after this one to be top contender. Jacare was tagging Rockhold a bunch, I'll be very surprised if Belfort doesn't knock him out. Phone Post

IMO Rockhold takes this the way Bisping fans thought he would beat Belfort, surviving the 1st and 2nd round blitz and then beating Vitor with better cardio.

I think Rockhold doesn't get headkick KO'd in the first two rounds and wins a decision.

Wouldn't say he goes to the "back". He'll probably fight Jacare or maybe the Lombard/Okami winner.

Good question :)

Weidman says he will be ready to fight in the summer. This could go down in Aprilish...:) not really sure what the UFC wants to do here. Phone Post

I think Vitor will knock him out. I thought Jacare out struck Rockhold and at the time he was a much worse striker than he is now, and even today's Jacare likely isn't on Vitor's level standing. Rockhold has surprised me before but I don't think he beats the top 5 in the UFC. Phone Post

Love this. VTFU Ninja.

So much better than lumping him in with Silva immediately.

gamer - What a stupid and meaningless fight

Weidman NEEDS to fight Vitor

With an impressive win he would more then earm his title shot and prove to us he's ready to beat Anderson

It seems like Weidman is being rrushed into the title fight now, and that is ridiculous.

I believe Weidman has the skills, tenacity, and style to beat Anderson, but he is sorely lacking the experience, and big name wins

Fact is Weidman beat Munoz. Munoz is not a world beater. A win over Vitor would mean a lot more for Weidman. Then bring on Anderson!

While Weidman fights Vitor, Anderson takes on a fight at 205

Its a win win for everybody!




Weidman vs Vitor makes the most sense for both guys IMO.

Anderson doesn't want to fight Weidman because he doesn't have a name - beating Vitor would give him a bigger name.

The UFC doesn't want to give Vitor a shot a Anderson because of how the last fight between the two went - beating the #1 contender would be the best way to get them to reconsider.

Anderson Emelianenko GOAT - why should Victor wait for Weidman to heal up? is there even a timetable on when he'd be back?


Vitor vs Rockhold is a great fight
Weidman has been tweeting he is ready in summer. He just tweeted that he wants Anderson on the 4th of.July card... Phone Post

Vitor/Rockhold should be 4/20 in SJ. Winner gets a shot.

If Lombard beats Okami, he should fight Weidman in the summer for the next shot after Vitor/Rockhold.
