Chris Weidman Is The No. 1 UFC Middleweight, According To Chael Sonnen

While giving Chris Weidman credit, Chael Sonnen also took a bit of a jab at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

While an analyst on the UFC on FUEL TV: Munoz vs. Weidman post-fight show, Sonnen declared Weidman the top man at 185 pounds. “The All-American” knocked out Mark Munoz in the main event, improving to 9-0 in his career.

There is no way to deny what we just saw; Weidman was on a roll. Now he is playing with the big boys. Now he is in the main event. The test was passed with flying colors. Chris Weidman, present company included, you are the best middleweight in the UFC.

Sonnen lost to Silva recently, and many feel like Weidman could become the next challenge. As far as his opinion goes, Sonnen believes Weidman is on course to do just that.
