Chris Weidman sat down with SI Now for a fairly interesting interview in advance of this weekend’s PPV card. Key quote below, click below for the full interview.
“The only reason I got into this sport was to be number one and right away I had to envision beating this guy if I was gonna do it. I believed I could beat Anderson Silva from day one. I believe I have the skill set to do it, I have the wrestling — which he’s been exposed on — and I could add the jiu-jitsu that I’ve competed on a world-class level with. I bring a lot to the table, I’m very confident. It’s a huge opportunity and I’m going to make the best of it.”
