Whew, sorry for the lack of updates on MiddleEasy today. I was lost in the middle of Mexico without a phone signal and stranded for hours inside the closest thing Mexico has to a ‘ghetto.’ When I finally recovered my car (long story), I managed to navigate to the Mexican-American border only to go through the wrong immigration line and be detained in a metal cage while I was interrogated. I don’t even know what day it is anymore, but I do know that I need to bring you guys as much MMA news as possible until I pass out this evening from absolute exhaustion — so let’s get started.
Anderson Silva’s legacy exists somewhere at the end of time, lingering at the edge of eternity to serve as evidence that a species of humanoids existed and a man named ‘Anderson Silva’ held the greatest genetic combination any human being ever attained in the history of the species. The truth is, Chris Weidman isn’t Anderson Silva’s biggest threat. The Spider’s biggest threat is a fully-loaded gun held directly at his head. Granted, Anderson would probably just dodge the bullets and look ridiculously cool doing so. For the sake of the UFC middleweight division, we’ll believe that Weidman is the highest contender Anderson Silva can face and therefore everything he mentioned during today’s UFC Q&A holds remarkable relevance. Check out the MMAFighting video below of Weidman’s dialogue with the fans, along with his constant pursuit of a shot at Anderson Silva.
