LOL!

 

Vitor would KO Weidman with the quickness.

 

When that fight comes up lets see if you put your money where your mouth is. I will bet you even money. Weidman will be the favorite because the odds are written by experts not fanboys. Phone Post 3.0
The same experts that made Rockhold favourite at the weekend? Solid point. Phone Post 3.0


Do you know the odds winning favorites have in MMA overall?

lol Weidman hasn't shown ANYTHING to suggest he's got something for guys like Vitor and Anderson.

 


Weidman is like Jon Jones is some ways.  Even though he was still green, he was winning.  Now he's really putting all together.  His striking under Ray Longo has progressed exponentially.  The guy is going to be a force.

He's going to be a force after Anderson demolishes him.

He hasn't shown any weaknesses yet. Silva/Belfort both have shown weaknesses in their previous fights. Weidman not yet. Phone Post 3.0

His weakness is sloppy stand-up that is nowhere near fast enough to deal with the onslaught that is coming.

sure no wrestler ever got AS down, Weidman be forced to stand. AS was never controlled from on top.

I never bet but the argument for Weidman is clear (wrestling and BJJ).

Munoz is as good a striker or better than Anderson and look at what happened to him!

This would be more meaningful if they were having a kick-boxing match. Given that Sonnen and his sad standup have won 5 of 7 rounds against Silva I don't think this is nearly as compelling of an argument.

Weidman is an excellent fighter.

How he's earned a ranking over Vitor Belfort who has just knocked out Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold?  Lol.

Pretty sure Weidman was the #1 contender before Belfort beat either of them, so you don't have a point.

nolabrum - What makes you think Vitor would destroy Weidman? What weaknesses has Weidman shown that would make you think this? Can Vitor beat Weidman in Vegas? Vitor has 2 top ten wins @ MW. Weidman also has 2 top ten wins. Why would you rank Vitor higher? You think Weidman has no shot against Silva but Vitor does? Did you not watch their last fight. Vitor has been destroyed plenty of times in his MMA career. Weidman zero times. Weidman might get destroyed soon but then again he may not. Phone Post 3.0
Weidman has two wins in the top ten in his entire career.

Vitor has matched that with his last two fights and they were much more impressive than weidmans lucky elbow against an out of shape Munoz and his long boring fight against Maia that showed nothing

Weidman is bad ass but he should not be ranked above vitor. Phone Post 3.0
Not sure why you say it was a lucky elbow ? I'm pretty sure he threw that elbow to do damage Phone Post

That doesn't mean it wasn't lucky.
Not sure if serious ? Phone Post

I dont think Weidman is the favorite to win against the GOAT of course, but he's got a chance. His odds would be even better against Vitor. Dude knocks out a guy in his first UFC fight and all the sudden everyone forgets that he was brutally finished in his last 2 title shots. Rockhold is good, but theres no fucking way he was expected to beat Vitor Belfort... idk what Vegas was thinking but im sure more than a few hc mma fans cleaned up. one of the most seasoned veterans in the organization... A vicious finisher and nightmare fight for most styles, against Rockhold. whos been traning UFC for what? isnt it something crazy like 3 years? you cant say that Vitor is one of those great but never the greatest fighters as hes been champion before, but at this point in his career the description may not be so inaccurate. He beats almost everyone at middle weight except maybe Chael and the GOAT. Come to think of it he'll murder Weidman. you are right lolz

Weidman has 9 professional fights. Maybe he is the second comming, but there is no way to know this early on in his career. 

Vitor and AS have 30-40 professional fights each.

Sometimes the young buck takes over. Maybe this is one of those times, but his record alone doesn't sell it beforehand imho.
