Lets not forget the 2 weeks notice UD over Maia. It may not have been pretty, but a W is still better then a L, again, unless your a Bisping fan.
Far from a Bisping fan. And I'm not saying Weidman isnt good, I just think he is carrying way too much hype around here. Great win over Munoz sure, rather Munoz really deserved to be ranked that high or how good he really is or how much his injuries impacted his performance thats all up to debate. But thats it, like you said a very unimpressive win over maia and a UD on Sakara. So my point is he should be hyped as a up and comer not as a contender to the title. I can think of 5 great fights for him in this division other than Anderson which I'm not sure he would come out on top.
I dont think his record puts him leaps and bounds over other MWs as many people here think.
