Chris Weidman Concerned That Anderson Silva Will Be A No Show for UFC 162

UFC middleweight number one contender, Chris Weidman revealed that he’s worried Anderson Silva won’t show up to fight at UFC 162 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6th after Silva missed media tour in Los Angeles recently.

Weidman, speaking via MMAJunkie, said:

“I just want to make sure we both get in the fricken’ cage July 6,” [Weidman] said. “I’m still worried about that.” The incident made the contender wonder whether there were other surprises in store – an injury, for instance, which not only would dash his dreams but give the UFC a conniption.

“I don’t want him to hear this interview and be like, ‘Oh, that’s a good idea,’” joked Weidman. “So don’t use this, Anderson.”

Weidman is currently on an undefeated streak, which includes wins over the likes of Alessio Sakara, Tom Lawlor, Demian Maia and most recently, Mark Munoz. He was set to face Tim Boetsch at UFC 155 before a shoulder injury forced him out.
