UFC Middleweight Michael Bisping puts his pride aside and breaks down the current title situation at 185. He notes that many top contenders, including himself, lost recently, so Weidman is the obvious choice to face Anderson Silva next.

Bisping also acknowledges that a fighter like Weidman could stylistically be a bad match-up for the dominant Silva, so he does give the young prospect a legitimate shot to win the title this July. Weidman does have a great wrestling pedigree, but he will also be coming off an almost year-long layoff following shoulder surgery.
