Chris Weidman believes he is the top contender to face UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Following his second round victory over Mark Munoz, Weidman and his perfect record seem to make sense.
Others consider Michael Bisping the one to face Silva if he gets past Brian Stann later this year, but Weidman doesn't believe "The Count" shows up against the elite fighters in the division.
"I think he's a really great fighter, I really do, but I question his mentality against top guys when the pressure is on," said Weidman, in a recent interview with Fighters Only Magazine. "Which is pretty much what everyone says about him. He has had chances to fight for the title twice now and he doesn't come through when the pressure is on."
It remains to be seen what is next for Weidman, as Bisping, Stann, Alan Belcher and Vitor Belfort are all slated to face off, while Tim Boetsch remains on the sidelines.
