For the first time I think Silva will have his hands full. Weidman is young, talented, and well rounded. I think he can do it.
That being said, if there is a tiny crack in your game, Anderson finishes. Not just exploits a flaw, but finishes. Looking forward to this one.
I'm torn between Roger Gracie and Tim Kennedy. I have done a few seminars w Roger and he is a legend and all class. Kennedy is a Texas fighter who trains with some friends and well known local boys. Roger is really dangerous, and Kennedy is a beast- gonna be a good fight.
Here's hoping Munoz can get some redemption.
The rest of the card looks good too.
Well I think Weidman is going to be a real challenge for Silva even if he doesn't win. My only regret is that I don't have any KnobCreek to get blitz to during the fight. I will be relying on plain old Jack to send me to sleep after the action.
Don't think Weidman will be the one to beat Silva, unless Silva's starting to get a bit tired of it all. His standup isn't smooth enough for him to catch Silva and his wrestling certainly isn't better than Sonnen's or Henderson's, meaning taking Silva Down and battering him isn't a much softer option.
Silva by knockout in the second, would be my guess.
Good grief it seems like this happens every Silva match, people say fighter(insert name here) has all the skills to beat Silva. And yet the status quo remains. The only opponent I ever see really beating Silva is Father Time, and so far age doesn't seem to be a factor.
Too many people are predicting Weidman is going to beat Anderson. Based on what? his wrestling??.. Is he truely a better wrestler than say Dan Henderson?
I personally dont see Silva getting dominated the way he did in the first Sonnen fight.
Dont get me wrong I rate Weidman but I think Silva is a vastly superior striker and that will be the deciding factor.
Good looking card this..
Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman. Anderson vis KO/TKO - 3rd or 4th.
Frankie Edgar vs Charles Oliveira
Tim Kennedy vs Roger Gracie - via sub. Hoping for another grappling exhibition from the Master.
Mark Muņoz vs Tim Boetsch - Must win for both these guys. Could go either way but Ive got a feeling Boetsch will take this.
Cub Swanson vs Dennis Siver
Silva KO late in the 3rd round, Weidman long lay off mental game will not be great, and he like to wait for his opponent to make a move he can counter to take down, silva is very awkward and powerful and I think he learn't from the last two fights about his weakness when it comes to certain take downs,
Silva will show respect first two rounds and then look for the KO
"Weidman long lay off" Correction, he's been training for Silva NON STOP for the last 8 months.
im most looking forward to cub swanson vs dennis siver. **** will get real imo
martial arts supply
Its obviously one fighter win the game but who done large effort before game their chance is more.no matter if anyone lost the game because he will back again to win.
Yeah... who are you picking though?
