Chris Weidman is scheduled to fight Anderson Silva at UFC 162 in July and of course is coming into the fight a huge underdog. But that doesn't deter his spirit and speaking with The Fight Network, he explains why:

"I'm a huge fan of Anderson Silva. He's one of my favorite fighters to watch. Obviously he has 16 fights in a row with the UFC, defended his belt, whatever it is. He does a great job, he is so confident. He is beating most of guys before they even walk in the cage. Once they get in the cage with them, he does such a great job of making them feel like they do not belong in the cage with him, like, ‘Are you joking me? You are not on my level.' He makes them feel so uncomfortable that they just want to break. He has them broken and then he can hit them with whatever he wants and then he looks like a freaking God.

I agree and I do think he is the best of all time. He is pound-for-pound the best, but I think I'm better. I think I can beat him. There's a lot of motivation for the fight. One of the biggest for me is to prove all of those people that actually think I'm going to get killed and see him as unbeatable. I can't wait to prove them wrong. I want to make it look easy out there. I want to shock the world."

I'd be shocked if he beat Andy with a one hitter quitter, but wouldn't be at all if he won by UD

If Weidman plays his cards right, decision or a huge shocker of a submission.

Sadly it won't make him a star.

Anderson losing to Chris will quickly become endless articles of how AS got old, is shot, etc rather than proclaiming Weidman the king.

Weidman's big win aired on Fuel.

Weidman needs a PPV win or FOX win over a name bigger than Munoz.

Off of that win he gains total credibility and as such a win over AS becomes more than a magical upset but instead a crowning of a new dominant fighter.

Chris can beat Silva.

It's just that if he does it hurts the UFC more to lose Silva as champ on PPV than it will having Weidman with the belt.

Weidman versus anyone other than AS in a rematch will do less numbers than AS versus anyone else.

It's a good fight, one he can win but he wasn't built enough to the public or promoted nearly enough and a Primetime series won't be enough to change things overnight. Phone Post

I don't sense much confidence. He "thinks" he can instead of "knows" he can. He's already being mentally defeated. Phone Post 3.0

So happy that Weidman actually gets his shot before Anderson retires, he truly is the only one at 185 to even have a small chance to win.

Weidman will last as long as AS wants him too. No longer.

Pitbull8200 - Sorry also Dan Henderson at 185 which is not really a great accomplishment seeing as how 185 Hendo is not a beast. Phone Post 3.0

HAHHAHAHAHAHA!

 

You're a fuckin retard, confirmed.

Wiedman's gonna get smoked. He's good, but is WAY over hyped. Phone Post
