Comments Who do you think is a better fighter, and why?
Showing 1 comment.
What?? Weidman Striking accuracy depends of the range. He needs to have the opponent pinned, like silva on the cage on the 2nd fight hit on the temple rocking, or dancing around and not fighting. He will look very bad against machida, and win by decision but he would be beaten by either mousassi or rockhold. Almost same reach, younger, agressive, good wrestlers, athletic and strikers, wich he isnt. Check accuracy:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4ORrJcxh3w
