Would great fights but weidman deserves his shot. I really don't like Rashad moving down a weight after losing to Jones by decision (especially being the first person to take Jones to the 5th). He definitely has the tools to beat Silva too but he also has the tools to beat Jones, I'd rather see the latter. IMO he choked in the Jones fight, he never really mixed some takedown attempts or anything.
Anyway, my point is he's easily top 3 at lhw so why move unless its for a big fight?
