Chris Weidman UFC post-fight video scrum talks Anderson Silva, Hurricane Sandy, superfights and more

Middleweight "All American" Chris Weidman has been making a lot of noise in the 185-pound division, calling for a crack at Anderson Silva's belt while he recovers from shoulder surgery. Find out what his beef is in the scrum video above.

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Chris Weidman has been making a case for challenging Anderson Silva over the past several months and his media appearance at UFC on FOX 6, which took place back on Jan. 26, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois, was no exception.

And truth be told, he makes a pretty compelling argument.

Unfortunately, the "All American" is missing a marquee name from his resume, like a Vitor Belfort. But that's no problem, according to the Serra-Longo standout. He would be more than happy to fight "The Phenom" or Hector Lombard. Heck, he'd even be willing to tangle with Luke Rockhold.

But if it's up to him, he wants "The Spider."

Silva has been playing coy since his UFC 153 destruction of Stephan Bonnar. The Brazilian flirted with the idea of fighting Michael Bisping; however, "The Count" was upended by Belfort earlier this month, so the champ is now looking at Plan B. Or Plan C, as in "Cung."

No, really.

In the meantime, Weidman will patch himself up after surgery and hope for the best possible outcome. But if it was up to you, the fan, who would you want to see the "All American" fight next?
