I have always thought Weidman was the next in line simply because well....who else was there. But his little rant hear got me to thinking...who has he really beat to earn the shot? I mean, since when does sitting out a year getting surgery get you an automatic title shit that you never really had to begin with?
The winner of Weidman Munzo was going to be in the mix... it was none other than professional shit talker Chael Sonnen who sat that, after Weidman had a humble post fight interview and said that Weidman should be next, that he can beat Silva and that he should call Silva out.
I have never been quick to dismiss Weidmans win's. They are good solid wins, however its not like they are so impressive that everyone stood up and said OMG someone give this guy a fucking title shot.
I would like to see Weidman take a fight when he comes back before getting Silva. Hell if Hendo has to have a fight after his injury then Weidman definitely should.
