    Why does that matter? This is arguing over hypothetical arguing... It's this level of shit that turns these threads into crapfests instead of MMA discussions.

    I'm all for Anderson doing superfights or fighting in the lhw division for as long as it takes for the MW division to start producing some real contenders. Getting a shot with the greatest fighter of all time because freakin bisping lost? LOL Wow, what a deep division.

    Anderson destroyed that division, it needs some time to heal up. Make a interim champ, set up a fight on new years, money all day long. Chris "who?" Weidman right now is just another fight, but on New years, Chris "interim champ" Weidman is huge.
    That's alot of bitching and whining.

    Who is higher ranked than Weidman aside from Anderson?

    Exactly.

    All that I can assume is that GSP fervently denied the matchup with Anderson. So, looks like GSP will be matching up with Hendricks, barring a huge under the table check from Zuffa.

    And barring a Condit upset... WW contendership gets messy if that happens.

    I'm not convinced it would actually be an upset if Condit wins, but it would serve zuffa right if their order got screwed up and they recieved mainstream criticism for giving their champs vanity fights.

    It would really suck for hendricks though.

    I wouldn't call it an upset either; I think I'm taking Condit in this one. But the Vegas odds were for Hendricks, slightly, the last I saw.

    It would be really terrible for Hendricks, just at a basic level I'd feel bad for him. That said, Condit isn't as stationary as Kampmann and will out-strike Hendricks if he pulls that overhand, overhand, overhand stuff he did in the Kos fight.

    One of those fights where I'll be on the edge of my seat b/c I don't want either guy to lose.

    I'll take a name bet for any length of time that Weidman will be new champ after this fight.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    It seems that most are initially confident when fighting or preparing to fight Anderson. Those feelings/emotions seem to change when the reality sets in and they see Silva standing on the opposite side of the octagon waiting for the ref to start the match; that or when Anderson defends/sloughs off his opponent's bread-and-butter.

    Hopefully Weidman can keep it competitive, but I see Anderson finishing him, especially if Chris breaks mentally. Athletes seem to change when competing against Anderson, with the exception of Chael, that is. He still has his soul.

    I'll take that bet 1000 times, you got yourself a deal sir. (that is only if some freak thing doesnt happen and AS retires or vacates the belt for some unknown reason after he beats Weidman)

    i'll let you pick how long its for.
