He defeated the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time — Anderson Silva — twice in 2013 and beat Lyoto Machida by way of a unanimous decision victory in July, and now he’ll be taking on Vitor Belfort at UFC 184 on February 28, 2015.
The level of hate Weidman gets amuses me. It amuses me, because I don’t understand it.
Like I said, he has the charisma of a cardboard box, and he’s as clean cut as one can be. Despite his sponsor being “Bad Boy MMA”, he’s a good guy. He doesn’t talk trash (if you think what he wrote, that I showcased in this post, is trash talk, ram your head against concrete, and please, never breed). He just whipped the greatest of all-time’s ass and gave Lyoto Machida a big ol’ hematoma after defeating him four rounds to one.
Now, in February, Weidman will defeat the ailing, TRT-less Vitor Belfort. Book it.
And more hate will flow.
Simply because he’s a dominant American champion that’s whipping the asses of Brazilian legends.
Deal with it.
