Chris Weidman is receiving a ton of hype heading into his first title shot against UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva at UFC 162 this Sunday, July 7. Pundits are saying that he's a younger, bigger, and more athletic version of Chael Sonnen. They're saying his skill set is the ultimate contrapelo to Silva's complex game. They're saying he may ultimately upset the champion. With all due respect to the greatest MMA fighter to ever walk God's green earth, we're beginning to think Chris isn't the underdog in this matchup?
