Chris Weidman: This Was My Destiny

Chris Weidman always had the confidence to step into the cage against Anderson Silva. He oozed it, but the question many had was whether he would be able to stop the man that had become unstoppable in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Weidman proved the doubters wrong Saturday evening, doing what 14 other men couldn’t do before him and stopped “The Spider” in his tracks, dethroning the long running champion.

Weidman spoke about the win on FUEL TV and explain why winning the fight was his destiny:

  • Greg Myers

    More like this was a fluke

  • Marcelo Amorim

    Foi sorte otário

  • Rick Morales

    Man it was so rad to see Anderson get knocked loose! That’s what that DAB gets for being cocky.

    More like a paycheck. Odds in huge favor for Silva. Nice big bet. Get “caught”by a kid clearly not a true contender. He is really a nobody. You dont agree? then ask yourself this question, Why is he the Champion but no one talks about him being a real Champion? Why is the focus still on Silva? Why is Silva still the Favorite in the rematch? Sales! Money! Marketing!
    Silva will win it again in December. Lose in a Couple years again. Comeback and Win it again. and finally retire as the greatest who ever lived. and Weidman will become that guy that once beat Silva in a fluke accident.
