Frankie Edgar Discusses GSP-Nick Diaz Fight - FightLine.com
"I think they both come in with strong cardio," Edgar said. "Georges is the superior athlete. I think Nick would want to try and pressure him on his feet, try to avoid takedowns. But, Georges, no one does it better than him on taking people down. He's got some of the best ground-and-pound, and you will see a lot of that utilized in this fight to get the win."
Nothing against Weidman as a person, but I hope Anderson slaughters this kid to quiet the very loud whistle of the proverbial hype train. His wrestling will definitely be a factor and I'm sure he's no Chael Sonnen when it comes to defending submissions.

I believe Chris has all the tools in one place to present a most dangerous threat to Silva. His way of winning is no secret. He will have to win by outwrestling Silva and achieving a possible submission or inflict fight ending GNP. His MMA wrestling may or may not be as good as Chael's, but I am confident he has more than what it takes to outwrestle Silva if he can get a hold of him. He has much better BJJ and submissions than Sonnen, and he has brutish power in his GNP. The only thing that bothers me is how long Chris has been out and that he could have used one more fight (not to prove contendership but to prepare for Anderson).
I have been talking about Weidman fighting Silva forever now but I really would've liked to see him fight Silva with more fight momentum behind him. What he had gained previously has now sort of diminished in the past year. I believe Weidman has the abilities to beat Silva, and I'll be cheering for him, but I think it would speak incredible volumes if Weidman were to beat Silva after having such a long lay off and surgery.
So war Weidman.

Chael is scared of Chris I am sure and has said numerous times how he think's Chris will beat Silva.
Chael knows he ain't got fuck all besides his wrestling, Weidman is 10 times more complete than Chael is and thats what makes this a very scary fight for Andy.
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.
