Chris Weidman Says Anderson Silva Will Respect Him On July 6th

Much has been said about Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman ahead of their upcoming UFC 162 clash. The Middleweight title will be on the line, in what many fans are calling Silva’s toughest challenge in years. The P4P great has held his coveted title for nearly seven years, making him the longest serving UFC champion ever.

The common argument among Weidman fans is that his well rounded attacking style will win the day, while Silva fans believe that Weidman is another hype train about to be derailed. I certainly think this match has a lot of potential to be very exciting, but I’m yet to make my decision about which way I think the fight will go.

It’s always going to be hard to bet against Anderson Silva, he is such a talented fighter. The same could be said for Weidman. who is a superb athlete, although he does have less octagon experience.

Check out this UFC 162 pre fight interview with Weidman, and stay tuned to Lowkick!

    In the interview, Chris Weidman said that he has been dreaming about this fight with Anderson Silva since he joined MMA….Weidman has also been dreaming about getting a golden ticket to enter willie wonka's chocolate factory.

    Can Wideman get it to the ground? That is what this all boils down to. Excellent submissions, Vicious ground and pound..some of the best wrestling in the middleweight division.
    Silva is a killer, the best finisher and counter puncher ever. Wideman has his work cut out for him.

    Silva respects everyone he fights. This dude is being silly. Has there been anyone with a less impressive record land a title shot. Sure he looks good on paper but that's it.

    I am a little bit suspicious when a training partner talks about how dangerous their team mate is. There is alot of hype surrounding Weidman, but he has never held a ufc title, is young, is coming off injury, ring rust….When Uriah Hall hit Tuf, there was so much hype that the sperm banks started refusing customers. Weidman is just another contender at this stage. Talented yes, but living with a constant erection until the fight arrives can't be healthy.
