On July 6, Chris Weidman will attempt what 10 other middleweight fighters before him have failed to accomplish—unseat the reigning UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.

Silva has held UFC gold since defeating Rich Franklin via TKO at UFC 64. Yup, almost 100 pay-per-view cards have passed since Silva defeated Franklin.  Oh, and something else: Silva has never lost in the UFC. Silva is currently 16 fights into a run that began with a 49-second knockout of Chris Leben in June, 2006.

Weidman is a solid wrestler with a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and many people, including UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, believe that Weidman has the skill set to defeat Silva. 

In preparation for the upcoming bout between Silva and Weidman at UFC 162, I went back and watched each of Weidman's professional MMA bouts, ranking Weidman's performance in each contest.
