Chris Weidman: I’m Never Going To Get Respect From Doubters

30

Following his second straight win over Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman spoke to Ariel Helwani about whether or not he feels he will now get respect from those who doubted his first win. Despite two impressive performances, Weidman feels he won’t get the respect from his doubters but isn’t really bothered by that. He explained why:

“Well first of all, your always going to have doubters out there. So it’s one of those things where if that’s your motivation to proved doubters wrong, it’s an uphill battle. You’re never really gonna do it. For the people that are supporting me, I appreciate it, and I’m going to keep try to prove them right.”
