Anyone who follows the sport knows who Weidman is. Most know he is probably the best fighter next to Silva in the division too.

Silva would rather clown cans in the cage than fight someone who may present a challenge.

From now on I will be calling him little Fedor, or Lil' Fedor.
People know Bonnar. Weidman is obviously good, but he doesn't really have any sort of draw yet. It would be like putting Glover Teixeira in a main event. Yes he's good, and people who follow the sport know that, but the business side of MMA is that main event fighters need to have some sort of equity to attract people who are just occasional watchers of the sport.
