    I think anderson silva is afraid of weidman because of how easily weidman destroyed munoz. Munoz and silva used to spar and munoz always had silva on ground, then silva sees how easily weidman dominated the man who dominated him and realizes he cant whoop weidman. Silva will likely come up with injury after injury in hopes of postponing this fight til he can figure out how to get totally out of fight

      So true so true

      and this is relevant to this article how?

      • tyrone

        Relevancy lays in the fact that this is mma article and im talking about 2 mma fighters. Also getting word out that silva is grasping at straws to get out of this fight any means possible

        • shakejunt

          that’s a pretty weak justification
