Hold on for a second...can you show me where he's "crying and bitching" about Anderson ducking him? I actually see you
crying and bitching more about Weidman
than Weidman is crying and bitching about Anderson--and he's literally got his livelihood at stake. He was asked a question, he answered it. He focused more on the fans than the fact that--despite the fact that dana announced he was the #1 contender 3 months ago and he still has to face another top 10 guy, Anderson announced he has no intention of facing him.
By any way you look at it, that's a champion ducking a contender. There is literally no other excuse that makes any sense. Even if you think Anderson is justified in ducking him to chase big money vanity fights, it still comes down to Weidman being announced as #1, and Anderson--not soares, but Anderson--stating he has no intention of fighting him. That's textbook ducking.
And Chris isn't whining about it, he's talking about how he's surprised that Brazilian fans are nationalistic about wanting Anderson to always win.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
