When Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva go head-to-head at UFC 162 on July 6, 2013, many fans aren’t sure what to expect. Will “The Spider’s” winning ways continue with a dominant performance against the “All-American”, or does Weidman’s brute wrestling and submission game be the potion to end the reign of the pound-for-pound greatest?
Weidman tells AXS TV Fights about his mindset going in to his first title opportunity against one of the middleweight champion.
“He’s not gonna beat me before I walk in that cage, It’s not happening,” Weidman said on INSIDE MMA. “He’s going against a guy who’s going out there to finish him. I’m not going out there to see how I’m gonna do against him. I’m going in there to shine.”
