    Someone's Weidman nuthuggery is going crazy, runner up for comeback fighter of the year, he only won 1 fight, lost 1 too......granted his win was a good win.

    I did think about Primus for his win over Chandler in the upset category too, probably was a bigger upset than a debuting fighter losing, the injury was the killer for me though.

    The loss was a b.s loss...should've been a NC

    No, absolutely not. Weidman tried to play the game, and got fucked. Correct decision was made.
