In short... the guy is a beast.
Take a quick look at the numbers:
33-4 Professional MMA Record
16-0 as a UFC Fighter
16 Consecutive UFC Wins = UFC Record
10 Consecutive UFC Title Defenses = UFC Record
6 "Knockout of the Night" Bonuses = UFC Record
67.8% Significant Strike Accuracy = UFC Record
17 Knockdowns Landed = UFC Record
However based on what I've read, there are plenty of people who believe that Weidman is the man to end Silva's reign. Here's what fellow UFC living legend, Georges St-Pierre predicts...
"Not only is Chris Weidman going to beat Anderson Silva, I believe he's going to finish Anderson. I believe it's not going to last too long, this fight."
I'm dying to watch this fight. The hype has definitely garnered the attention of this small time MMA fan.
Happy Saturaday and sayonara!
