If for nothing else, you have to hand it to UFC middleweight Chris Weidman for being bold. UFC President Dana White told a story at the UFC 158 post fight press conference about how Weidman felt about his chances against defending middleweight champion and pound for pound king Anderson Silva at UFC 162: Silva Vs Weidman. There is a lot of talk about super-fights between Silva, Georges St-Pierre, and Jon Jones, but Weidman plans on spoiling the party for everyone. Weidman feels so bad about the situation that he plans on making it up to his boss.
White told the media:
“I talked to Chris Weidman. Guy looks me right in the eye and says, ‘I’m telling you, I apologize that I’m going to f*ck up all your super-fights… He says, ‘I’m gonna f*ck up all your super-fights and I’m gonna be your next champion. But what I will do for you is I’ll give him[Silva] an immediate rematch in Madison Square Garden as soon as he loses.’”
“He is right, If you take Anderson Silva out of the mix, the super-fights are all gone.”
