Chris Weidman was hoping for an immediate rematch against Luke Rockhold, however Jacare Souza was hoping to get a fight against the former champ. With news of Yoel Romero failing a USADA drug test, his #1 contender status was revoked.

Now, given that, Chris Weidman is fully expecting an immediate rematch against champion Luke Rockhold. MMAMania has the transcription from Ariel Helwani speaking on UFC Tonight:

“He’s been keeping up with the news on Yoel Romero and the just announced Vitor-Jacare fight. He’s begun training for rematch with Luke Rockhold. He hasn’t been told he’s getting that fight yet. He says he wants to fight for it any time. At UFC 199, any time, he wants the rematch.”
