there's a pretty inneresting thread on sherdog about how weidman's older brother abused the crap out of him
when they were younger... helped make him in to who he is today.
he looks almost exactly like chris except red-headed and HW-sized. not to mention he was a gang leader and
went to prison, it seems.
when you survive a monster like that, it prolly takes away a lot of the awe you'd otherwise have for people like
silva and machida. remember that little 'bring it on' gesture weidman made at the end of round five? well, he
survived a 10-lb weight being dropped on his face when he was a kid... things like that.
