Coming off a huge second-round KO win over fellow contender Mark Munoz, Chris Weidman is the talk of the UFC middleweight division.

Does he have the résumé to get the next shot at pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva? If he's not given a title shot, who else would he like to fight?

You can ask the undefeated contender himself on Friday at 1 p.m. ET, as Weidman will join Yahoo! Sports analyst Kevin Iole to talk about what's going on in the middleweight picture, why he deserves the next shot at "Spider," and who he's got winning the UFC 150 main event between lightweight champ Benson Henderson and former champ Frankie Edgar.
