    Weidman suffered the fate of Okami. #1 contender but fucked by injury.

    So you can argue Rockhold as more deserving and accomplished over Weidman... but because Chris is a better stylistic matchup with Anderson, he should get the nod.... Yet you can easily argue that Evans is an even worse matchup for Anderson... Look at who he has fought, all of his experience. He has the wrestling, the speed, power. Solid technically everywhere. One of the best MMA wrestlers out there. Look at what he has done at LHW, and where he is ranked.... Yet it is crazy to give him a shot at Anderson... Hell a lot of those same people were in favor of Frankie fighting Aldo right off the bat.

    I like Weidman and hope he is the next to face Anderson. It would be a good fight, he is clearly deserving... but all this talk about Anderson "ducking" him is ridiculous... or that he is in a class of his own, no one else deserves it like he does.

    Its funny to see people on here pick apart Bispings record and state why he should be ranked high... Yet by their own standards... Munoz and Maia should not have been ranked that high either... Munoz is not a bum, he is a top10 MW... but NOT a top5 MW... I really dont put him much above someone like Stann... His best win at MW was an ugly win over Leban, who isnt ranked high... Bisping and Stann easily beat him more soundly. And a very close win over Maia... He had some wins over some known fighters, like Grove, CB, but no1 great.... guys Bisping would be accused of padding his record. He got tooled technically by Okami.

    I like Weidman, he was an exciting up and coming fighter... but really? Anderson was looking for fights with GSP and Jones(not 1 without the other) and he is being accused of being scared of Weidman...

    Splitting hairs? Anderson has said several times that he fights who the UFC wants him to fight... He will give his opinion on who he wants to fight, and that his opinion, but he ALWAYS says that its up to the UFC.

    He was asked who he would fight if the GSP fight didnt happen... He said possibly Bisping or Weidman.

    When has he ever been offered a fight with Chris... and I love the fact that Chris has been off the shelf since August... and when Anderson takes the fight with Bonner it somehow related to Weidman, who was not able to make the Brazil card... THEN got injured again, and Anderson is still ducking him... Damn...

    Reminds me of how Anderson was ducking Sonnen after he took the Okami fight... got injured and fought Sonnen in his very next fight... Chris gives one hint that Anderson is ducking him and the fans run with it as if its gold. He learned well from Chael.

    We have not seen the UFC offer him the Weidman fight, and why would they even offer him a fight against someone who is currently injured? it makes no sense... But yes, Anderson is probably scared... He'll run off and fight some pushover like Lombard or Rockhold.... What a disgrace... what have they done...

    Weidman wouldn't have fought in the Octagon in a year and he would be coming off of an injury...he is not the #1 contender anymore. The same with Evans when he decided to wait for Shogun to recover, but then got injured. Too much time has passed imo.
    Jones Era >> Machida Era
    Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, Michael Johnson, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman.

    We're talking about who the #1 contender is as of this moment. It is Weidman. He made that claim when he beat Munoz 6 months ago. Since then, he not only hasn't lost that claim, instead made it more credible given that 4 other top contenders dropped out of the spot with a loss (Bisping, Boetsch, Lombard, Belcher). Weidman also has better wins than Rockhold, whose biggest win is Jacare. UFC doesn't want to see Belfort and Okami fight Anderson Silva again either. The two superfights (GSP, Jones) doesn't look like it's happening either. Who else is there?

    If Lombard beats Okami impressively, they can build that up, but if he loses, it only establishes Weidman more solidly as the #1 contender. Not saying that he will get the shot, as they could easily go with Rockhold for the champion versus champion billing, but let's not kid ourselves to thinking that anyone else is the #1 contender besides Weidman at this point.

    No one in this thread is talking about Silva ducking fighters. It's been a debate about who's the top contender and come comments about Silva fans.

    Except when he said that he had no intention of fighting Weidman after the UFC declared him the #1 contender. That's the primary reason people are annoyed about the Weidman situation. It's just shitty that a champion would say that about the declared #1 contender.

    But good god, it's been talked about to death. The only reason we have to keep having the "ducking" conversations now is because you bring it up in every fucking thread. Just like you turn threads about Bisping into flame wars on Weidman. Get over it.

    It doesnt matter what Anderson said or was told to say. the UFC makes the fights... Do people honestly think Anderson is pulling the strings behind the scenes... Do they realize that Chris has had back to back surgeries since his last fight.

    Anderson has since said that he would probably fight Bisping or Weidman. Yet you choose to ignore that.

    Bisping just clearly lost... Hector is tied up... Weidman is looking like he may get his shot sooner than later...

    I dont think the UFC or Anderson were trying to withhold a shot from Weidman at all, why would Dana want to do something like that. He just doesnt get the fight when he wants it. Andreson has to be good to go, as well as the UFC setting it up.

    He called out Anderson right after he beat Munoz, a few days after Anderson beat Sonnen... and rightfully so, good for him. He needed some exposure to try and get him a title shot... only he has been out since August... that little detail is being left out...

    people are bitching about Weidman not getting his shot, while he is currently rehabbing an injury.
