Chris Weidman

On June 4th Chris Weidman will look to reclaim his UFC middleweight championship from Luke Rockhold in the main event of UFC 199.

In the pair’s first meeting, Weidman suffered the first defeat of his professional MMA career as Rockhold dominated the fight from start to finish, ultimately picking up a 4th round TKO win.

Ahead of the rematch, it appears as though Weidman has brought in elite level striker and top ranked UFC welterweight Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson to help him prepare for the rematch with Rockhold, where he was outmatched in the striking department.

With Weidman training with Stephen Thompson, do you think he will be able to reclaim the UFC middleweight championship at UFC 199?
