This is a pay per view driven business. Champs share in a percentage of that revenue, so I get why Anderson was holding out for a bigger name than Wiedman and frankly don't blame him.
Weidman makes me nervous because I know his plan will be to smother fuck Silva until a UD. He won't have a choice.
Best Fighter on the planet.
What do you mean when you say he has no choice?
The Odds are not very good for anyone NOT named Anderson Silva. but with Silva this becomes a realistic problem. I can see where hardcore fans are coming from, but title shots have always been "discretionary" in the UFC. There is no real structure, so it behooves champions to put in their 2 cents if they want the most lucrative and interesting fights. It's up to Dana White and the UFC to decide who the champ will ultimately fight. And last I checked Dana White really fucking likes money....so Weidman should fight one more Big name and if he can destroy that opponent, then I would throw my support behind him getting a shot. But right now there are more interesting fights out there.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
