Jason -

That an odd statement to make. How about Weidman has NEVER faced a fighter that could even be uttered in the same sentence as Anderson Silva level?

It's Ray Longo, so he gets a pass. I took it more to mean that Anderson hasn't fought anyone with the combination of skills that Weidman has. It's kind of like if Javier Mendez had said that Big Nog has never fought anyone on Cain's level.

I'm so sick of this bullshit hype train. Even if he goes in there and wins now and shocks the world, I will still just feel "okay, fine but please SHUT THE FUCK UP".

One thing gradually killing my love of football (soccer) is the inane, repetitive media controlled hype in the Premiership. I never thought MMA would go down that road but it has.

As Real As It Gets doesn't equal insincere PR / Media department driven, sanitised, made up fueds etc. bullshit.

Ban fighters from twitter, ban constant obvious promotional bullshit, have the UFC PR department shot...

No more fining fighters for daring to be controversial either.

I sincerely think by trying to act more like other 'serious' sports org's the UFC is actually killing the very essence that made it different and refreshing in the first place. 'Oh no we've offended transsexuals - the horror!'

I don't want sanitised media friendly fighters. I want BJ Penn fighting running into a cage, knocking someone the fuck out, licking blood of his gloves and running the fuck back out again.

Sorry miserable old bastard rant over.

Pride never yadda yadda. Phone Post 3.0

the only thing unique in this equation is Anderson Silva

Thats always true about Silva but rarely if ever true about any other fighter

He may have the tools to pull out the win but he's also 1 strike away from being the most recent guy who wasn't on the same planet as Anderson let alone on the same level, a lot of hype over a couple of wins. Phone Post 3.0

You could argue that the hype train is intended to have two effects:

- convince people that Weidman can win so they want to watch Silva get KTFO...

Or

- make people want to watch to see Weidman get KTFO...

Either way = PPV buys.

But personally for me it does neither. I want to watch to see Silva fight anyway.

The hype just makes me sad for the UFC and MMA in general and makes me wish we could go back to the pre-media bullshit days where people didn't try and 'Sonnen' their way into fights via Twitter.

I get that Dana's job is to hype fights, i like Dana, but seriously - enough of this shit now.

Even if he knocks Silva out in Rd 1 this obviously orchestrated hype campaign has been a bag of wank with a side order of shit chips. Phone Post 3.0

UGCTT_ Lay'n'PrayNINJA - You're right, he has fought fighters at much higher levels.

Better bjj players
Better wrestlers
Better strikers

Chris is a BIG dude with a nasty combination of wrestling and bjj, but lets be real. Anderson has fought plenty at Chris' "level". Phone Post
If Weidman wins. His coaches will be proven right. But all the nuthuggers will cry about a broken rib or a prime Anderson would have crushed him. It's a big "IF" though. Phone Post 3.0

You think that if Weidman wins, that it proves that his coaches were right about Silva not having faced another opponent on his level?

Of course Weidman CAN win. It's MMA. But him winning doesn't mean he's so much better than all of the other opponents. If he beats him up for a few rounds, clearly showing superior technique in every facet of the game, and then finishes him, THEN I would agree that he's on another level compared to Silva's other opponents. But he hasn't proven that at all in his performances to date. A win won't automatically prove that.

Weidman is obviously beyond Hendo's level


Styles make fights. Weidman >> Hendo when facing Silva easily, and Vitor at that.

I love how people complain about fight promotion. The UFC is a business. Should the tagine for the PPV be "C'mon... You know Anderson is going to beat the shit out of him"? Of course not. Fighters get paid to hype in order to generate buys. We all know what the real likelihood of Weidman winning is, so what does it matter? Phone Post

Okay, everbody out. Let's close up shop, Weidman apparently shouldn't even show up. Actually, no one should because the UG says no one can beat Silva EVER.

Fight promotion - yes, fine. We all get their job is to sell the fight.

Incessant twitter bleating, 'all the fighters are picking Weidman' and other such obvious bollocks - not so much. Phone Post 3.0
