With all of the hoopla surrounding Anderson Silva not showing up at his scheduled media appearance in Los Angeles, Chris Weidman recently discussed with MMAfighting his thoughts on “The Spider” and why he thinks he decided to bail on his media obligations.
“I just went out to Los Angeles for three days. I just wasted time during my camp. I haven’t been in this sport as long as him,” Weidman said, “but you watch these superstar basketball players like LeBron James, and after every game, win or lose, he answers questions from the media. There’s always stuff that you don’t want to do when you’re an athlete, but you just have to do it. I hope he’s staying grounded, I hope his head isn’t getting so big that he thinks he doesn’t have to do things for the UFC, but who am I to judge? If his head is really getting too big, I’m definitely going to bring him down to earth on July 6.”
It sounds like Chris Weidman is thinking that Anderson is not taking this fight or himself seriously. Can Weidman pull off the upset? We will find out July 6th.
