The fight at Middleweight most people wanted to see is around the corner.
Chris Weidman has a perfect record. This is largely the reason he finally gets his chance at the golden ring, but at 9-0, is also undeserving of a title shot given his lack of experience.
Very little can be said about Anderson Silva that hasn't been said already innumerous times.
Chris Weidman has excellent wrestling credentials. and will score a few takedowns. Chris Weidman is developing into a great striker as well. The productivity and tricks he's picked up from Ray Longo will afford Anderson Silva one too many opportunities to counterpunch, knee his way out of the clinch, and pick apart Weidman in route to a third round TKO.
Tarec Saffiedene vs Robbie Lawler
Everybody loves Robbie Lawler. His only boring fights are the ones where he spends the majority of each round on his back
Tarec Saffiedene likes to kick people in the thigh. He compliments this with solid punch combinations.
Tarec lacks the punching power to stop Lawler, but his agility will make the difference in avoiding Robbie's best Clubber Lang impression. Saffiedene outpoints Lawler from bell to bell and wins a UD.
Antonio Siva vs Cain Velasquez 2
This'll be quick. I had a dream, and in that stream of consciousness, a durable Silva peter-rolled a flat-footed Velasquez .No round in particular.
