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. Â 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.”
