I'm not making him out to be a hero because I also agree that he needs to defend more. I'm just saying that all this chaos over Weidman is just not that big a deal to me. It's about defending his title to me...period. I don't care who he fights as long as he fights. But Weidman is not going to go in there and do anything to Anderson that any other fighter has tried to do and failed. I STILL don't think Anderson has even put out 100% in any fight. He hasn't needed to. And Weidman hasn't shown me anything that says he is the guy that will. It will just be the same story. Anderson will go in there, walk through Weidman, and then get criticized for not moving up. But without Anderson defending more, who can argue? So while I'm on the same page for him defending, I just don't think he has ANY competition at MW and not much at LHW.

I think Anderson needs to move out of the MW division (because no one there can beat him) and fight at LHW (because I personally think he cleans house there as well). So I'm not trying to say that Anderson is a saint here, but I am also not putting all blame on him either. Dana and the UFC is the boss and make fights.....make it happen.
