With Vitor widely considered the favorite of most Brazilian fans after the Maia/Silva debacle it is no conspiracy against Anderson that most Brazilians will be cheering for Chris Weidman in the rematch.

Anderson Silva has repeatedly stated that he will not give Vitor a title shot, Dana White has parroted this sentiment, TRT Vitor has turned Silva from a gunner into a runner.

Enter Chris Weidman: FEARLESS, AMERICAN, BADASS. No doubt Chris Weidman will give Vitor a title shot, he will even go to Brazil to tap Vitor out in front of the hometown crowd.

"He ran up outta there"

In many ways Chris Weidman is more Brazilian than Anderson, who much like Wanderlei Silva is just another naturalized US citizen.

Weidman exemplifies everything the Brazilian fanbase looks for in a fighter.

A purist on the ground, dropping for kneebars, always looking for a dynamic ground finish all while possessing true one shot kill you dead in your steps power.

You could and probably should catch Chris Weidman at an ADCC event putting on a showcase of the Brazilian national art.
