Chris Weidman will finally be stepping into the octagon to face Vitor Belfort at UFC 187 this month. After getting delayed due to technicalities and injuries, Weidman is excited to defend his UFC Middleweight Championship against “The Phenom”.
During the UFC 187 media call, Weidman expressed, “My goal every time out is to try and separate myself from the division and make a statement to the world. I like to prove to myself where my abilities are and [see] what my coaches think. I’m ready for this fight to make a statement and I’m looking for a finish,” Weidman stated.
Even though he has been away from the octagon for almost ten months, Weidman still has a few tricks up his sleeve that he’s excited to show the world. “I’ve been off for awhile and I have been working on a lot of things. I have a lot of new techniques, many new magic tricks to bring to this game. I’m excited and comfortable enough to try them out in the Octagon. I’ve been practicing them a lot in sparring and in training, to bring it to another level, and I want to do it front of millions when a lot’s on the line.”
