Chris Weidman UFC ChampionYou’d think that after knocking out the man that many consider the greatest mixed martial artist of all time, new UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman would be able to sit back, take it easy, and reflect on his accomplishment for at least a moment.

That’s not how he sees it, however, after knocking Anderson Silva out at UFC 162 in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

“I gotta get better. I feel like I still haven’t really looked my best,” he stated at the UFC 162 post-fight press conference. “So I’m really just looking forward to going back out there and keep holding on to this belt as long as possible.”
