    Seagal: Anderson better on paper and real world
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...nd-real-world/
    Seagal: Where I come from we always say talk is cheap and the proof is in how it goes in the fight. If you all want my opinion, and I assume the reason why you called is because you want my opinion. My opinion is this young gentlemen, from what I've heard is a real nice young man. I can see he's very good on the ground. He's got grappling skills, great take downs, great guillotine, great arm triangle stuff like that, very good. That's kind of what I can say about him. I think he's very strong and good at all that stuff.

    I think that he's an offensive fighter and I think that Anderson is a better defensive fighter, which automatically puts him at a little bit of a disadvantage in some ways. I think Andersoon won't go on his knees so a lot of that stuff won't be easy for him to get. And he's very dangerous on his back, which I don't think many people realize. People think 'Yeah I got on top of Anderson' and look what happens when they do.

    All that said, I believe Anderson is a little bit faster, he has a lot more experience, I believe he has a lot better timing, I think that he's a better striker, and I think he's a better kicker. He has better kicks and better strikes.

    So people can say what they want to say and in this world anything can happen, but I kind of feel on paper that Anderson has the advantage and in the real world he has the advantage.

    Ariel Helwani: Do you feel as though this will be Anderson's toughest test in the UFC?

    Seagal: Oh I don't know. He's hard some pretty damn tough tests. He's got five rounds to knock him out and that's why I'm hoping for is a knockout. I hope Anderson will knock him out and that's not offense to this young gentlemen. That's my guy and that's what I'm hoping for. Anderson has some tough times, like with Chael Sonnen and he was injured badly. That was a real tough time. I don't think it gets too much tougher than that. So no, I don't think Weidman will be tougher. He's a great fighter, very strong, great ground game, wonderful fighter, wonderful young man.

    Ariel Helwani: Some people have called Chris Weidman the great white hope, great white hype if you will, have tried to will him to beat him, do you view it that way?

    Seagal: To be honest with you, forgive me for saying this, but spending so much time in Detroit and Louisiana, we don't look at color, great white, great black, why do we have to talk about color? He's just a great young man, a great fighter with great potential, and we don't need to be hoping or praying for anything, let's hope the best man wins, that's the way I look at it.

    Ariel Helwani: Do you feel as though Anderson is being disrespected? As someone who knows him, his body of work, does it bother you to see people pick against him so easily?

    Seagal: I mean we are living in a very very strange pond to swim. It's a very strange pond to swim in. There's a lot of people who have no experience in the martial arts who are talking as if they've been doing it for fifty years and talking as if they are masters. There are a lot of people who make up shit and lie through their teeth. There's a lot of people who have huge egos and huge mouths who love to talk and say a lot of stuff. Then there are people who are highly accredited people who have been in the martial arts a long long time who certainly we want to hear from. They cast their opinions with respect, which I always try to do, and everybody wants to hear what they have to say. We're swimming in a pond with the good, the bad, and the ugly. What I try to do is tune into the good and stay around the good, and more and more as time goes on I hope the UFC gets more people that are polite and qualified to give their opinions.

    Ray Longo: Anderson Silva hasn't faced opponents on Chris Weidman's level

    http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/7/2/...weidmans-level

    Dominick Cruz expertly breaks down Anderson vs Weidman
    http://www.fightersonlymag.com/conte...son-vs-weidman

    Here’s what Cruz thinks:

    “Weidman can absolutely do it. But against Anderson Silva the pressure is on not to make a mistake while he uses his strikes to set up a takedown. That is the critical thing for Weidman. I’ve spent some time with Chris, he’s a smart dude, and he knows he’s not going to try to strike with Anderson.

    “Striking wise, Weidman cannot compete against Anderson on any level. At all. The reason he was able to land that elbow against Mark Munoz was Munoz was trying to set up for a takedown just as much as Weidman was and, knowing that, Weidman was waiting for the overhand right and that allowed him to land that elbow. He cannot land anything like that against Anderson.

    “Weidman has to have the exact same game plan as Chael Sonnen; everyone is saying that is the blueprint for him to win this fight. But here’s the problem: Anderson had two fights with Chael and has had over 30 minutes of Octagon time with that exact strategy.

    “Anderson went through at least two camps expecting that to be his opponent’s strategy. Anderson’s takedown defense is light years away from where it was even two years ago. Remember, takedown defense is only one aspect of one discipline in MMA – and it is one of the easiest aspects to improve on.

    “But Weidman can still get him down. Anderson takes anything from a minute to half a round to figure out his opponent’s distance and timing, and Chris has to make use of that to score a takedown. Once he has Anderson down, he can strike very well, and I expect him to pass and force Anderson into a scramble.

    “Anderson usually waits in his guard for a chance to escape or counter, but Chris hits hard enough and is active enough to force Anderson to try to get back up fast. That’s where I see Weidman winning the fight, in the scramble as Anderson tries to get back up.
