“If I beat Anderson Silva, there are two things that are going to happen,” Weidman said. “There’s going to be an immediate rematch, or he’s going to retire. He has 11 title defenses, and if he loses to me, I think he’s going to get a chance to get a shot at (my) title.”
“I do plan on winning, and when you have a goal you have to live from your goal,” he said. “You have to really believe it’s going to happen. I already believe and I can feel that belt. I’ve gone over in my head every type of scenario (in the fight), from being terrible to where it gets good, from fighting through adversity to picking him apart in every aspect of the game and come out looking like I’m the next great thing.
“That’s my goal – to go in there and look spectacular.”
