Chris Weidman: 'I'll finish Anderson Silva' (Video)

"I think with a full camp, I'll finish him. Obviously I'm not fighting Anderson Silva next, but if I was, that would be my prediction. I'm confident with myself, you have to be as a fighter. I have a lot of respect for Anderson Silva, I think he's awesome. I don't know who I'm fighting next, I don't know when. I was hoping to fight in May, because that's in New Jersey and it's another FOX card. I would love to be on FOX again. But it's wherever the UFC feels I'm at. I'm down."

Undefeated middleweight contender Chris Weidman, who inserted himself into "the mix" by huffing and puffing his way past Demian Maia at the UFC on FOX 2 event last month in Chicago, feels confident that with a full and proper training camp, he would not only defeat reigning 185-pound champion Anderson Silva, but finish him in the process. Anyone think the "All American" is getting a little too big for his britches? Or can he use his wrestling and jiu-jitsu to eventually finish what Chael Sonnen started?
