Chris Weidman has the chance to make history this weekend at UFC 162.
The middleweight contender takes on UFC middleweight champion and
pound-for-pound kingpin Anderson Silva in the main of event of UFC 162, and
with a victory over “The Spider,”
UFC 162 is shaping up to be the biggest card that the Ultimate Fighting
Championship has put together thus far in 2013. The main card consists of
five important fights in two weight classes, with each competitor having a
lot on the line. These athletes have spent weeks coming up with the
necessary strategies to win these bouts, and here is a look at what tactics
should work best for each fighter on the main card:
*Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman*
Chael Sonnen laid the groundwork for what many believe is the best strategy
to defeat Anderson Silva: take him down Weidman would become the first man other than Silva to hold the UFC’s
185-pound strap since 2006, when Rich Franklin was still the champion.
Weidman no doubt has an uphill climb, but this is a fight that he can win.
The 29-year-old was a two-time All-American at Hofstra University and he’s
