    Or the casual fan will be, 'did you hear about this Chris Weidman? Dana White claims he will beat Anderson Silva, I gotta see this."

    Chris is a beast but Anderson is just a bad man. He knows what Chris's gameplan is so he's probably working hard with Jacare to prepare for it. He'll come very prepared and get the 2nd or 3rd round finish imo.

    A on Anderson is almost unbeatable. Has he overlooked Wiedman, is he 100% or close. Wiedman has to have his A game to have a chance, and I believe he has a chance. One thing I feel as fact is Wiedman deserving this shot, and it should of happened over a year ago

    Weidman is a great athlete without a doubt, but I can see Anderson toying with him for a round or two and then getting the finish. Flying scissor heel hook in round 3.

    Ed Soares explains how Anderson Silva can lose to Chris Weidman at UFC 162
    Ed Soares explains how Anderson Silva can lose to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 - MMAmania.com
    Ed Soares, manager to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, among others, says "The Spider" is capable of losing just like any other mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, despite dominating the 185-pound weight class over the last seven years with relative ease.

    After all, no one is "invincible."

    Before you start screaming betrayal on Ed's part, he says that can only happen if Silva doesn't go into a fight healthy, focused and with a good training camp behind him. If he crosses off those items on his "to do" list, then no fighter can come close to beating him.

    The proof, as they say, is in the pudding, as Silva has run roughshod over the 185-pound division, leaving a trail of destruction behind him to the tune of 16 straight wins inside the Octagon, including 10 straight title defenses.

    If that wasn't impressive on its own, he holds three wins over James Irvin, Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin at light heavyweight.

    But, an unfocused Silva is beatable, as Soares explained on "The MMA Hour:"

    "Anybody can go out there and put on a fight. Chris Weidman is undefeated, he's a tough guy and a fight is a fight, anything can happen. I believe in Anderson Silva. Anderson Silva is the best fighter on the planet. I think Anderson Silva is a bad fight for any fighter in any weight class. I'm not saying Anderson Silva is invincible. Anderson Silva can be beat just like anyone else can get beat. But I think if Anderson Silva goes in there well trained and focused, I don't think there's a fighter on the planet that can beat him."

    I think Ed is right that AAnderson is the best fighter on the planet BUT

    unlike with the Chael fight, a hailmary triangle will not catch a Renzo/Serra BB in BJJ, Chris GnP is light years harder then Chaels,

    Point is, this is the classic Grappler vs striker....and if Anderson ends up under Chris it can be a long night for Anderson.

    I like both guys and a fan of both, I think Anderson is the best fighter on the planet but this time he gets beat by Chris

    Euphemistic way of saying he blatantly lies constantly.
