I agree with you, he looked VERY impressive.
I was watching the MMA Hour about a year and a half ago when (maybe it was 2 years?) and Ray Longo was on the show with Gian Villante and they brought Chris Weidman along just to kind of get his name out there. Villante was getting ready for a Strikeforce fight and Longo was hyping that one, while simoultaneously saying look out for this Weidman kid.
He destroyed Sakara, cut 32lbs on 11 days notice and beat Maia and then smashes Munoz. He's on a tear. I think he needs another fight though.
Put him against Alan Belcher or, dare I say, Chael Sonnen. I think if Lombard looks impressive and stops Boetsch next weekend, he should either get the shot or fight Weidman for #1 contender. I think Weidman is going to want to fight soon, where as we probably wont see Anderson until spring '13.
