Chris Weidman walked into the octagon on Saturday with intentions of keeping his UFC Middleweight Championship and undefeated record in tact. He became one step closer to greatness when he forced the referee to wave off the fight while pummeling Vitor Belfort on the mat. Now, two new challengers await “The All American” for a shot at the gold: Luke Rockhold and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.

Both Rockhold and Jacare are coming off big wins at “UFC on FOX” in April. Rockhold defeated Machida in dominant fashion and Jacare was able to submit Camozzi in less than five minutes. Rockhold was catapulted to the top of the division with his victory and is likely next in line for a title shot, but Weidman doesn’t care who he faces next.

“Both of those guys are very good, but I think I’m on another level than both of them and I want to showcase that,” Weidman told the Fox Sports 1 crew during the post fight show. “I feel like this is just the beginning for me. I’m just starting to show what I have. All I really want to do is fight at MSG in New York.”
