Weidman Thinks Adesanya Is Overrated
Whereas the MMA world has been raving about the Israel Adesanya vs Anderson Silva fight at UFC 234 and throwing huge amounts of praise Adesanya’s way, one man who isn’t overly impressed with him, is Chris Weidman.
Following Adesanya’a win over Silva in the UFC 234 main event, the former UFC middleweight champion Weidman, tweeted that he thought ‘The Last Style Bender’ was overrated.
Weidman did enjoy the fight though.
In Dana White’s UFC 234 post fight press conference (which you can watch here), the UFC president said he like the idea of a third fight between Anderson and Weidman. Weidman wasn’t so keen on the idea though.
The ‘All American’ knocked out Silva at UFC 162, to win the UFC middleweight title. And then defended the belt in a rematch, when ‘The Spider’ suffered a nasty leg break in the rematch.
Weidman lost to ‘Jacare’ Souza in his last outing, losing via a third round knockout at UFC 230, last November.
