Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg Look Forward to UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman

In a video courtesy of Fuel TV, UFC Octagon announcers Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg preview the upcoming blockbuster middleweight title match between longtime champ Anderson Silva and challenger Chris Weidman. Many think that Weidman is the man to finally dethrone ‘The Spider,’ while others believe it will be yet another knockout for the champ.

Rogan and Goldberg express their beliefs that Silva is the greatest of all time, a sentiment both loved and hated among MMA fans everywhere today. The event will go down on July 6th from Las Vegas in the main event of UFC 162. 

Weidman has looked impressive in going undefeated but has obviously yet to face opposition even close to Silva. He is also coming off a year-long layoff coupled with shoulder surgery, so it will be an incredibly tough test for both fighters. Who do you pick to win this pivotal matchup in three weeks’ time?

    im excited to watch anderson silva gets beaten by another wrestler but this time he is going to be TKod, i mean weidmann is much younger, bigger and faster what else does silva have an advantage, maybe standup but they are going to fight at the ground i see this fight as weidmann will be at the top beating silva with elbows and punches.

    I just dont see the awesome fight cards we had in the past. It's been a long while since I was pumped for a UFC event. Ive been saving my money. From the replies after every event, it was probably a wise thing to do.
    Rheem was the only one I cheered for as he fall to the mat ha

    Jon Jones has fought better opponents and trashed them all. Anderson is great to be sure, but he's feasted on a weaker crew.

      Your right Jon Jones was able to build up an incredible resume in a short amount of time. However, I've never seen ANY mma fighter with the composure and reflexes to simply stand still and dodge a punch with such ease before delivering a counter punch. I've seen boxers do that but not mma fighters. Silva is easily the most deadly finisher we have seen too.
      Jon Jones athleticism play a larger role is his dominance that people like to admit but I'm willing to admit that I believe Jon Jones isn't anywhere near his full potential as a striker. I expect to be calling him the G.O.A.T 10 years from now, but for now I'm riding with Silva as the G.O.A.T.

    AS is no doubt one of the best (if not the best) ever. Why then do people hate? The answer has two points to consider. 1. People just like to hate on the success of others because many times it makes them consider their own (possible) lake thereof. 2. There is a lot of implied racism against successful fighters if you read peoples comments closely. For example many people complain about GSP being boring and hope he loses but people who hate on AS more often wish him a violent KO. Racism is refuge of uneducated fools and has no place in the analysis of the sport we all love.
