Chris Weidman, who is 1-3 in his last four fights, believes a win over 2018 Jacare Souza "clearly" puts him next in line for a title shot? What percentage delusion/hype/poo poo division is that?

Christ, I just looked at the rankings, and he might actually be right. How is a dude who has fought three times in three years, lost 3/4 of his last four fights, and not fought in fifteen months ranked third in his division in the premier MMA fight promotion?

I don't think I'd even consider mw particularly lovely right now, its just in a weird place. Of the top 6 under the champ the only two who aren't coming off a loss are Weidman and Kelvin, (who is a welterweight and is Weidman's last win,) plus the champ and Rockhold are hurt.

It gets pretty thin toward the bottom of the top 15 but it's pretty well always been that way at MW imho

That fact that he's even capable of human speech after that knee Yoel landed is a minor miracle. I'm willing to overlook the occasional hallucination.

he would deserve it but comes with a lot of arguing why, more because of other people's actions/losses than his wins

he's beaten Kelvin who is getting the shot before him, Rockhold isn't prepared to fight because of injury, Whittaker already beat Yoel twice and Jacare before that. you can kind of explain away the Mousasi loss as being invalid because of the whole mess that was but i'm on the other side of that argument, plus he left

The rankings are not set by UFC, they are just an automated averaging of rankings submitted by these 14 people, and as far as I can tell they each take their sweet rear end time submitting so you'll see massive changes at random times depending on who's list gets updated. It's why Mirsad Bektic and Josh Emmett are both #8 instead of one of them being #9 (which is empty), if you look at some of the individual lists you will see crazy things like Anthony Pettis on the Pound-for-Pound rankings or Cris Cyborg being #4 on it for a certain voter.

Luke rockhold, coming off a loss and 1-2 in his last three, should not have a title shot any time soon. He should lose to someone else so that someone else can have a title shot. Chris weidman also. Also those two should not fight each other until more contenders have beaten them

i would like to have seen steroid hendricks / whittaker. gastellum / whittaker will be pretty close though.

besides gsp will fight khabib next. why go after a nobody like whittaker when you can out-wrestle the invincible wrestler and steal his match with floyd. i'd actually really like to see how gsp would prepare for a floyd fight. no mma guy on earth stands a chance in a boxing match with him, but i'd be most interested in a gsp / floyd fight and would consider it probably the furthest possible thing from a squash match where one guy still wins incredibly easily

Middleweight is weird and dumb in that anyone in the top 5 or 6 probably beats anyone in the top 5 or 6 or loses just as easily.

Weidman didn't even look bad in his 3 losses until he... lost. Same with rockhold. The only dismantling we've really seen in the division was when Bobby knuckles wrecked Jacare comprehensively.

Gastellum v Whittaker is going to own and I don't know who to go for because Kelvin is my fat little hero who owns but Whittaker is amazing and Australian who owns.

for sure, although If jacare cracks him I can see Weidman shooting and Jacare cooking him but hell I can imagine Weidman shooting or perhaps throwing a wheel kick of some kind while he's got him on the ropes

I'm definitely looking forward to this as a fight more than Lewis Cormier even tho I have money on Lewis lol. One of those fights that gives me 'the feeling' before it happens

Yeah. Some other people have mentioned that the division is in a weird spot. That’s why I modified my post to “maybe he’s right.” In a vacuum, there’s nothing that screams “Weidman deserves a title shot,” but looking at the division picture as a whole... who else does?

Someone mentioned the Romero knee, and I unironically think he might be on to something. Weidman’s been KOed (just checked, first one was a TKO) in three of his last four fights, and that Romero knee was gross. I can absolutely buy that sort of back-to-back-to-back streak of getting knocked out being legitimately life-altering.

Unfortunately, theres no way to tell if Weidman's current level of brain damage stems from

- Yoel Romero rocket launching a knee into his skull

- That time his older brother dropped a 10lb weight on his head when they were kids

- Being from Long Island
