"I will fight anyone the UFC tells me to fight. But the guy I WANT to fight is the champion, Anderson Silva. If I was told I was not getting that fight next, okay, let's look at someone else but until then I am not thinking about anyone other than Anderson."

-- Undefeated UFC middleweight Chris Weidman is not taking his eyes off UFC Middleweight Champion and pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva. That is, until the UFC tells him that the fight is not happening. Of the two big middleweight fights that have taken place in the last month, Weidman clearly demonstrated the most value, crushing Mark Munoz in the second round of their UFC on FUEL TV 4 fight while potential challenger Hector Lombard laid a big, fat egg against Tim Boetsch. Weidman had plenty of interesting things to say during a special fan chat session on Yahoo! Sports earlier today. So what do you think? Should he remain focused on Silva, or should he start setting his sights on another top middleweight since "The Spider" seems very disinterested?
