Chris Weidman Puts Motivation For Anderson Silva Bout on Refrigerator (Photo)


Undefeated middleweight challenger Chris Weidman does not lack confidence heading in to his UFC 162 title fight against champion Anderson Silva this weekend. Weidman believes that “Silva has been exposed” and he truly believes that he will be leaving Las Vegas as the UFC champion.

There may be some wondering why Weidman is so confident, but it looks like we may be able to credit his “vision board” of sorts.

Weidman has a picture on his refrigerator that reads “I will defeat Anderson Silva”. The photo then goes on to list a number of reasons why Weidman can take down the champion.

We have heard of bulletin board material before, but it isn’t every day that someone gives themselves the material to get fired up. Weidman gets to look at that message every day when he wakes up and if he truly believes it then we should see the best version of Weidman on display. This one is going to be fun, folks.

Here is the picture that Weidman is using for his motivation:

We will find out just how well the motivation worked this Saturday when Weidman meets Silva in the center of the octagon at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on pay-per view.
