Number one contender Chris Weidman has been under the tutelage of Ray Longo for a long time, and Longo knows a thing or two about upsets.  Another Longo student former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra beat Georges St-Pierre as one of the biggest underdogs in UFC history, and now another one of Longo’s fighters is looking to unseat the best fighter the UFC has ever had in its Octagon. Longo feels Weidman is set take on this challenge, and he also feels that Weidman is going to get ahold of Silva and dump him on his head.

We are all going to find out on Saturday night. UFC 162: Silva Vs Weidman takes place on July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Longo told MMAfighting:

“We’re going to stay in the moment. The weigh-ins the weigh-in. That’s all it is. He’s there to fight. He’s there to win and that’s it. He’s not there to get in a spitting contest with this guy or do any other things that are stupid. He wants to go in there and fight the best guy in the world, which is what he’s doing. I think he’s really excited to test himself.”

“Can a 40-year old man stop this young, talented, strong, huge, technical, confident kid from dumping him on his head? That’s the way I look at it. This guy is a beast. I think the age might play a little factor in this. I’m not sure there’s a guy in the United States that could stop [Weidman] from putting him on his head at that age.

“He’s that good, Ariel. He really is. It’s not just bulshit. He’s technical, strong, he’s confident. He’s got the attributes that it takes to win this fight and I think everyone knows if that fight hits the ground, it’s going to be a different story.”

“This guy is no joke. I just believe the guys Silva’s been beating aren’t on Chris’ level, standing up or on the floor.”
