    Default Georges St-Pierre thinks Weidman won't just beat Anderson Silva, he'll finish him

    UFC President Dana White still insists Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva is going to happen. It's a dubious claim by now, though if the long-debated superfight ever does come to fruition, at that point it may not be so super. Or, at least it won't be if St-Pierre's prediction proves true.

    That's because the UFC welterweight champion firmly believes the undefeated Chris Weidman -- currently listed as a 2-to-1 underdog -- won't just stun the world, he'll also do so in dramatic fashion.

    "I believe [Weidman] is going to beat Anderson Silva," St-Pierre declared to Canada's Sportsnet. "I believe it's a bad matchup for Anderson Silva. It's very bad.

    "Not only is he going to beat, I believe he is going to finish Anderson Silva. I believe it's not going to be too long, that fight. This, people will be shocked."
    The 37-year-old Silva hasn't truly lost in nine years, a stretch of time that spans 20 fights. Meanwhile, the 28-year-old has racked up an impressive 9-0 record since turning pro four years ago.

    So what do you think, folks? Is St-Pierre onto something here? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Now let's get to some headlines.
    Georges and I usually see eye-to-eye on things, but not this time. People will be shocked at how bad AS beats Weidman.

    I agree with GSP. I am a Anderson fan but I think Chris wins by TKO GnP, not a finish but a ref stoppage.

    Chris wrestling, Gnp, and BJJ is a leathal combo aginest Anderson.

    We all know thugh, IT ONLY TAKES ONE SHOT from Anderson to change a entire fight.

    I wouldn't really be shocked if Weidman won, but I would be pretty depressed about it.

    This needs a source link, or it's noobjacked by the end of the day.


    A DQ isn't a real loss? whoever wrote this is an idiot. I can see where Andy-fanboys want to try to go the Fedor-fanboy route and discredit the loss, but there is a huge difference between throwing the illegal strike and receiving one.

    Anderson has done enough where his record doesn't need to be needlessly--and ineptly--padded.

    I feal the ground is Silva's weakest link, but still deadly with subs & elbows while on his back. Many would like to be as good as Silva's weekest link! Chris has the skills to get it to the ground, but can he avoid a sub after he got through a excellent A game of striking

    Weidman wasn't come off a long layoff I would give him a chance but I think AS destroys Weidman.

    Edit: And then AS calls out GSP....and refuses to fight Jones.

    This. I think you guys are giving Weidman a lot more credit than he deserves. He's a good fighter, but I dont think he is anywhere close to posing much of a problem to Silva.
