Video: Cageside Chris Weidman mic'd up for Anderson Silva win over Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153

Chris Weidman is on the scene in Brazil watching Stephan Bonnar become just another statistic. Can the "All American" prevent himself from suffering the same fate against Anderson Silva at UFC 162?

"Anderson's trying to be relaxed and defeat Bonnar mentally right now, keeping his hands down, but Bonnar needs to say 'screw it' and move forward, keep punching him in the face. Anderson Silva trying to showboat. Bonnar needs to somehow stay confident or he's getting in his head. This is what Anderson's best at, he gets in his opponent's heads, makes them feel like they have nothing for him. Then he strikes, gets them to feel uncomfortable. Anderson Silva just does a great job of making people feel uncomfortable in there and that gets guys tired. Anderson is just so relaxed."

I'll say one thing about Chris Weidman, he knows his onions when it comes to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. The "All American" was surrounded by all Brazilians when he was deposited cageside for the UFC 153 main event, which featured "The Spider's" technical knockout win over Stephan Bonnar last October. Weidman will look to succeed where "The American Psycho" failed in the headlining attraction of this Saturday night's (July 6, 2013) UFC 162 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But can he follow his own advice, or will the "relaxed" champion make him feel uncomfortable? We'll find out this weekend right here.
