Pretty much. The antics were a way to get into Weidman's head. He obviously didn't respect Weidman's hands or clearly heard when Longo said to deflate the air from his chest.
Most people in the know we're giving Weidman the advantage in the fight. Like JBJ, Weidman is the prototypical wrestler with good striking (Weidman has more power in his hands than Jones though). Chael, despite choking in the fifth, exposed Anderson.
And I looked up Johnson and Jones reaches. Jones has a 6" reach advantage. My gut says to go with Rumble but my head says Jones. JBJ is the safe bet.
Also, UFC Countdown will be on FS1 tonight at 7 PM PST I'll be watching
Yea, I remember seeing a good amount of wrestlers picking Weidman, but I don't remember seeing a lot of people pick him, on NT or off beyond that.
But clearly my recall is not so good
Also looking forward to seeing Gastelum/Woodley and McCall/Lineker on the premlims.
Gastelum throws himself into that mix at WW with a win.
