Last week a rumor surfaced that Anderson Silva may have suffered a rib injury and would be unable to defend his title at UFC 162. The person most affected by the injury other than Silva might be Chris Weidman, who relayed his roller coaster of emotions to Ariel Helwani on the MMA hour:

"I was like, 'Don't tell me this, don't tell me this,'" he recalled to Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I'm freaking out. I'm like, 'I need to go home and take a nap. I need to go exit the world for a little bit. Honestly, I needed to go home and take a nap because I was going to start freaking out. It was just too much. Overload. I was freaking out. And then we ended up finding out it wasn't true, knock on wood."

The report of Silva's rib injury stemmed from Yahoo! Brazil, but the possibility of Silva withdrawing was quickly refuted by both UFC president Dana White and Silva's camp.

Still, it's been difficult for Weidman to shake the fear that something will sidetrack his long-awaited matchup, which is set for July 6 in Las Vegas.

"There's something that scares me with that, yeah," he said. "The thing is, it’s been a long road. After I fought Munoz, I called him out. We were supposed to fight and it ended up not happening a couple times. So I still have that mind set. But I'm training for the fight. I believe it's going to happen. But there's something inside me that's a little bit like, 'I just really want this fight to happen.' I just want to be in that cage with him. I just want to get to July 6. I want to get to the weigh-ins. I want to look at him. I want to see him physically there and I'll be a happy man."

that "rumor" was just part of Silva's asymmetric warfare. He's in Weidman's head!

I think Weidman has a good shot at beating Silva, but it certainly hasn't been a "long road" to this title shot. Munoz was being positioned for the next shot, and when Weidman beat him, he jumped to the front of the line.
