People who say Weidman doesn't "deserve" the shot are people that I think see the threat Weidman poses but are just in denial.
Bisping, Boestch, Belcher all lost, so Weidman is definitely the frontrunner now IMO. 10 fight contract extension ? Who needs it? Silva will probably retire if they announce this fight. Silva is a great fighter with no heart.
Cung Le is a slower chubby shell of his former self. Rockhold reminds me of a smaller Stephan Bonnar and these are the guys Silva wants to call out? You gotta be kidding me
