I'm boarding the Weidman bandwagon. Silva is a great champion but it's true that no one can beat father time. Muhammad Ali tried it when he was the same age as Silva is now. He lost miserably to a younger, hungier Larry Holmes.
Silva had his time. 10 years is a lot to give away in the fight game. Weidman is not hype. Hype implies that the praise is undeserved. His wrestling and jiu jitsu accomplishments speak for themselves. His record speaks for itself.
The thing that has been so overlooked in all of this is the age difference between the fighters. Sooner or later age matters. I think we will see that on fight night.
