TJ Jones: I didn’t watch the fight but he beat a young up-and-comer. It seems like his chin can’t hold up to the big strikers in the division, so he might want to swallow some pride and focus on his wrestling from here on out, in my humble opinion.
Shane Kruchten: As much as I love Weidman, I think there are killers in that division that he won’t be able to get past. I think it was a huge win but a long road ahead to talk title contention
Neil Magny: Yes. He had a severe neck injury that takes time to recover from. I had the same injury. It has taken me years to regain the confidence I had prior to my injury. His last fight was the kind of build-up he needed in my opinion.
Devin Powell: I absolutely loved seeing Chris Weidman back on top. I would love to see it go all the way but there’s so many killers out there and it will be tough to endure that hard road when he’s been finished a few times in a row before this. I am pulling for him. Regardless, he’s going into the HOF.
