As one of the few middleweights left in division without an upcoming bout scheduled, and as an unbeaten competitor, Chris Weidman believes he is the top contender to face UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva.
Michael Bisping, meanwhile, is slated to face Brian Stann at UFC 152 this September. The match-up has plenty of importance, as both believe they can become a challenger to Silva with a victory in tow.
However, Weidman recently made some comments regarding Bisping that seemed to tick the Brit off a bit, saying in an interview with Fighters Only Magazine, “I think he’s a really great fighter, I really do, but I question his mentality against top guys when the pressure is on.”
As a result, “The Count” fired back at Weidman, saying “Chris the Wiesel Weidman saying I fold under pressure. Hahahahaha I needed a good laugh this morning.”
Bisping will have his hands full with Stann, but there’s no question it would be an interesting outing to see the Brit paired up with Weidman down the road.
