Since joining the UFC back in 2006, Anderson Silva has been perfect. He's won the middleweight title, established himself as the best fighter currently competing and made a convincing bid to be recognized as the best mixed martial artist of all time.
Still, there are those out there who will tell you that Silva is going to lose at UFC 162. Of course, that's pure lunacy, right? If so, count me a lunatic, because I buy it.
My conviction for picking Weidman is not particularly strong—I could definitely see Silva winning—but it does exist, and I see him pulling it out.
His style is well-suited for Silva, his confidence is an asset and his overall ability is through the roof, even if he hasn't had the time to convince everyone of that just yet.
The American could very well pull off the upset at UFC 162. Brace yourself.
