UFC 168 Video: Chris Weidman Talks Silva, Title Defense and Gaining Respect

Dan Hiergesell@DHiergesellFeatured ColumnistDecember 30, 2013

Chris Weidman has a lot to hang his hat on.

Still undefeated at 11-0, the UFC middleweight champion is fresh off his second 2013 victory over the greatest fighter of all time.

But somehow, through all the perfected strikes and relentless pressure, Weidman's monumental accomplishments have been overshadowed by Anderson Silva's failures.

Watch "The All-American" explain his take on Silva's brutal leg injury, a future title defense opposite resurgent Vitor Belfort and gaining respect from unsatisfied doubters.
