You’re fighting on the same card as Anderson Silva versus Chris Weidman. Give us your thoughts on that fight.
I think [Weidman] is very, very dangerous. His grappling is at a very high level. He can submit any world-class grappler. I think he’s really that good. He can tap anyone, even me. It’s just a matter of if he can put Anderson in those situations. I would still put my money on Anderson but I think Chris Weidman is dangerous and can surprise him. Phone Post 3.0

He was nowhere even close to tapping maia, who is much smaller than roger gracie. 

Yeah, Roger is just being overly complimentary.

Roger is in the UFC now and has been training with Weidman, of course he is going to say that. For what its worth, Roger would absolutely clown Weidman in training, ive seen the guy roll in training with various top level MMA guys and BJJ champs and he makes everyone look like whitebelts.

Goku is trolling as hard as he can in the lead up to this fight.

They live in london. I doubt they would send a hitsquad down there.

And brazilians are passionate people but not that crazy. If you get raped and murdered in the favala's its not because of you picked against Anderson.

Anyways more reasons why this fight comes a little bit early. I understand the reasoning behind it ( not enough talent at middleweight) but dont think Weidman has a big chance yet now because of his striking. Within a few years he could have though. Phone Post 3.0

Of course he's gonna say that but then pick Anderson to win? Phone Post 3.0

Roger has trained with GSP and is presently training with Machida - he's impartial.

He is very humble but does make an interesting point - if Weidman can get Silva down which he surely will, then we will see if Weidmans highly touted BJJ is upto par and if Roger is saying so then surely it carries a lot of weight Phone Post

Yes troll, he is going to compliment Wedimna's grappling because he trains at Renzos.

Or is that too difficult for you to comprehend?

How is it impartial when Roger trains at Renzo's for most of his MMA fights, and Weidman also trains there with the Serra connection?  Grasping at straws to convince yourself that Weidman is going to win.

Roger hasn't been tapped in any kind of competition since he was a blue belt I think. He's just being respectful if he says anybody can submit him, especially Weidman.

Also I thought every single UFC fighter picked Weidman already Goku? Why do we need a new thread anytime anyone says anything positive about him? We already know every one thinks Weidman wins! Right? Phone Post

was it necessary to get that specific though ? to say that he can tap ANY world class grappler including me and is a very dangerous opponent for anderson (his teammate)? maybe *gasp* hes just being honest...or are you calling him a liar?
