Chris Weidman Wins

“I think that I’m a versatile individual, and I pretty much feel like I can do anything that I want to do in there. I can stand and bang and knock him out, or I feel as if I can take him down and submit him. Nothing’s going to come easily, and I always expect some resistance, but if someone had yelled out and told me that this is what I had to do, I am getting the job done, whether they told me to submit him or knock him out. I’m going to get it done.”

Chris Weidman spoke with Sherdog about his upcoming title defense against Vitor Belfort, and how he will get the job done no matter where the fight takes place.

“I have respect for him, and I have respect for the cage. Anybody who is going to step into the cage, I have respect for. The second that I don’t have respect for someone in there is the second that it would take for me to lose that belt. That being said, my reign as champion is going to be a long one, and no one is going to take this belt from me for a long, long time.”
