The hate for Silva here is reaching fever pitch at a ridiculous rate.
Silva will fight Weidman eventually, and will beat him, guess what? People will still find something to bitch about. If Weidman hadn't been running his mouth so much I dont think people would be so eager to say Silva is "ducking" him. Weidman is a semi legitimate contender but I feel his mouth is giving him that extra little push.
I dont think Munoz vs Weidman was a worthy number one contender fight anyways. Both guys had a win over maia.. and Munoz had just beaten Leben. Having Weidman fight Boetcsh was the best matchmaking imo, and if Weidman doesn't get a shot after that then fair enough.. I'll say Silva is ducking him.
Lombard and Boetch were on the same level as Weidman and Munoz before their fight imo.
