Well, I don’t think Lombard can do it… ;)

Where do people get off saying ‘Anderson didn’t want to fight Chael’ or anyone for that matter? He is the champ and he MUST fight WHOEVER the UFC puts in front of him. Seriously …

This is the reason why some people, and me at times, can’t stand Ariel! He plays the instigator. Whether it’s between fighters or in this case, and many others, when it’s about the promotion. It’s called sensationalistic journalism and it is the absolute opposite of what it is that he should be doing. Which is to report. Don’t put words into the mouths of others and stop trying to instigate. A lot of people found his sensei Seagal stuff, including the sarcastic interview with Cung Le, offensive. I actually realized it was a joke and thought it was funny at the time, but I realize now that even that was not appropriate. The truth is, if he was doing his job, he would interview the pathetic Seagal for real, asking him why is he trying to ride Silva’s coattails when it is clear that he has done nothing for the sport, and other direct questions that would have increased Ariel’s stock in everyone’s eyes and more importantly in his field. Instead he became a 12 year old smart ass and decided to have a little fun at the expense of an old pathetic man, lowering himself to his level. Ariel is in the forefront of this sport’s journalism and he should stop and think before he continues to go down this road. He either has the chance to be the number one guy even when the mainstream media gets in on the action full time and get on on some real shows and stop being UFC’s outsource or remain and become another mouth piece who sits at a desk and calls themselves an expert.

Who has Weidman beat? A Fat 240lb Munoz in a wrestling match that ended by chance? He won a split against Maia (Yawn). His only hope is to pull a chael and blanket Anderson Silva. He loses everwhere else.

Feed him to Vitor or Lombard/Barbarian winner.

Thats what Chael said LMAO

You are definitley out of your mind…

greysaku Says, in 7-17-2012 at 13:21:43 from    

Everybody that has fought anderson was a bad styalistic match up so they said…you’re gonna beat anderson because you’re young, and hungry? Come on man…

Drew Says, in 7-17-2012 at 13:27:58 from    

Love this kid’s confidence. Before the Munoz fight, I would’ve said he would get smashed, but now I’m actually interested to see this fight. Let Lombard-Boetsch winner fight Belcher-Bisping winner.

An instigator? I love it, that’s why his interviews are exciting and worth listening to because it makes fighter tell their real feelings rather than take the humble route. Anyways, Weidman has all the skills to beat silva. First, he’s young, has the same reach and height as Silva. His stand up is pretty good, that elbow itself showed me his skills. He has good wrestling and can take Silva down and do a better job than Chael with submissions and ground and pound.

Rio_Warrior Says, in 7-17-2012 at 14:53:45 from    

I agree this guy is boasting too much and havent done that much.

1- Munoz was coming out from surgery and a long time inactivity and cmon… hes a wrestling guy. If anyone think he can go toe to toe with AS is out of their minds and i hope weidman realizes that so he wont get crushed by AS on the very first round if their fight ever happens.

2- Wins a split decision over Demia Maia who by the way is not recognized for quality striking either.

Not his time to go for a TS yet, but Vitor Belfort wants a pice of him.

OhBoy Says, in 7-17-2012 at 14:56:31 from    

Boop; who are you to tell the guy what he should or shouldn’t be doing? He seems pretty successful so why exactly should he listen to you? When is your MMA radio show on so I can check it out and see how it’s supposed to be done?

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 7-17-2012 at 15:17:35 from    

EVeryone one wants a chance at Anderson…LMAO ..>Anderson is not a Pinata people, if he keeps winning he will fight him, slow ur asses down…. there are more experienced veterans also in line, its nothing new….

scoobysnack Says, in 7-17-2012 at 15:26:44 from    


Just b/cuz he’s successful at the moment doesn’t mean that everyone likes what he’s doing or that it’s right. I’ve always disliked the instigator side of Ariel, because I noticed he provokes the fighters, & as an MMA fan, i think the last thing fighters need is an instigator with a microphone in their face..this is why Dominick Cruz and others have had to ‘alpha male’ him or put him in check, because he absolutely reeks of sarcasm at times. The reason he’s successful, in my opinion, and what got him the audience he has now, is that he’s knowledgeable about the sport and PROFESSIONAL, i no longer watch his show as a direct result of him trying to be the Chael Sonnen version of Matt Lauer…i hate it when guys feel like if someone is successful then they cannot be criticized…according to your logic, i guess we shouldn’t criticize Hitler either, since he was successful, too.

2:20 – Ariel in troll mode – CAUGHT!

Ariel “He didn’t want to fight Chael” what a nosy instigating asshole…I’ll keep it at that…non racist..but you know the traits..

failsonnen Says, in 7-17-2012 at 15:47:46 from    

Plus… there’s still Bisping, Lombart, and Chael to go through before he fights Anderson.

mike the scientist Says, in 7-17-2012 at 16:47:52 from    

i would LOVE TO see ariel get his f***** ass kicked in , i would pay THOUSANDS ofdollars to just see this litle twit get stomped the F&^% OUT !

Poodles suck Says, in 7-17-2012 at 16:54:58 from    

Rio Warrior, Demian Maia is an absolute beast who only ever looked bad against Nate Marquardt who is a striking machine. And Weidman on 10 days notice, was out struck by Maia (in a super active fight albeit they cancelled each other out a lot)but easily out grappled him and so Weidman won a Unanimous Decision, not a Split. I agree a Vitor or Belcher fight for Weidman makes the most sense.

failsonnen Says, in 7-17-2012 at 18:14:41 from    

Its pretty stupid question by Ariel. OF COURSE ALL of these fighters will say they are the one to take out Anderson Silva. WHY would any fighter in that division say “no I dont think I have what it takes to be the champion”. Why is this even a discussion….oh yeah….because Ariel is a troll.

Reallynow? Says, in 7-17-2012 at 18:42:48 from    

Stop saying Bisping, because Bisping never beats any worthy fighter. Dude is a cry baby bitch. Chris has the perfect style and it’s safe to say he would out wrestle Chael because he’s probably stronger and def has better hands. And to down play Munoz is stupid because Chris demolished him without any issues. Anderson looked like s*** against Chael both times to be honest, though he won. If not Chris, then possibly Belcher, but never ever Bisping in a million fights. I can’t speak for Lombard until he fights a few times in UFC or beats the s*** out of someone with a good rep. Watch Chris beat Anderson, if and when it happens, if accepted, everyone’s mouth would come off of Anderson’s ball sack.

Reallynow? Says, in 7-17-2012 at 18:43:53 from    

And Bisping is fighting Stann. Chris would probably murder Spitsping.

Rio_Warrior Says, in 7-17-2012 at 18:58:42 from    

Poodles; Maia will really look beter now on his new division, and dont forget how he looked against AS…

T’Challa Says, in 7-17-2012 at 19:51:38 from    

@Boop.. I agree… Helwani is an instigator.. but in this era of “reality TV” sensationalism, everyone tries to be as outrageous as possible to get attention, viewers, money etc. Nobody seems to care about professionalism anymore..

baller Says, in 7-17-2012 at 20:09:29 from    

yall will be shocked, he will beat a.silva. i will made doe from dis watch n c

ironfist Says, in 7-17-2012 at 22:30:12 from    

I am all for wiedman getting the shot why the hell not. If anderson don’t want to fight for awhile let wiedman get the winner of boestch -Lombard for num 1 contender. Bisbing imo is a waste of Anderson Silvas and the fans time we all know what will happen in that fight.
Wiedman doesn’t know how to lose and is young,strong and not afraid of the spider.
Alot of you guys act like no one is worthy to fight anderson screw that his time has came and sooner or later it will go.

axe pittbull Says, in 7-18-2012 at 00:43:27 from    

he aint ready…put em up against bisbing first…or chael.

axe pittbull Says, in 7-18-2012 at 00:46:42 from    

he aint ready…put em up against bisbing first…or chael. he doesnt deserve that honor b4 hector lombard or gegard mousasi.

ness2k Says, in 7-18-2012 at 06:44:39 from    

Chill out chris. He is still high from his win!

cigronne Says, in 7-18-2012 at 08:11:21 from    

@Boop You nailed it man! That attitude sucks and sadly seems to be the common scene for journalism these days, mere reporters becoming the protagonists, wrong wrong wrong!

london_jones Says, in 7-18-2012 at 12:27:28 from    

the new dick ride is called “Chris Weidman”

f**k why not just go out on the streets and get anyone one that thinks they can beat the champ and put them in the ring!? this is getting dam right foolish. earn your spot young lad. beat the best to fight the best of the best that is how it’s done.the UFC needs to be careful not to hype up this young guy…he has some skills but they said that about Sonnen and all the rest.

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 7-18-2012 at 12:59:53 from    

My gosh beat a fat Munoz and was the beneficiary of a piss poor decision by the judges against Maia now he is a stylistic nightmare for Anderson. Never been a spider fan but in reality he brings absolutly nothing Sonnen didnt in fact it is an easier fight for Silva.

ironfist Says, in 7-18-2012 at 13:48:19 from    

yeah Silva shouldn’t fight anyone cause they would just lose. Everybody should just get to num 1 contender then just concede.
hardcore Silva fans are worse than any other fans i’ve ever seen. No one’s worthy I get it
truth is he should moved up in weight fulltime years ago but I guess no one’s worthy there either. And we will all look the other way when he grabs a fist full of trunks and the cage cause it doesn’t matter he would of won any way. So no one should fight him I get it

brn Says, in 7-18-2012 at 19:47:43 from    

anderson by knock out easy they all talk but realise this silva guy is a champ for a reason sure did shut chaels mouth up didnt it learn to walk before ya talk

Schism Says, in 7-22-2012 at 18:41:44 from    

Everybody’s been a “stylistic nightmare” for Anderson. Look what happened to all of them. Get in line dude!
