Weidman: ‘Forget Vitor’
Middleweight champion Chris Weidman made a stern point at yesterdayâ€™s press conference: heâ€™s tired of hearing about Vitor Belfort.
The 29-year-old undefeated champ was slated to defend his title against Belfort, but after a whole back and forth series of events stemming from an out of fight drug test in Nevada, Vitor withdrew and Lyoto Machida stepped in.
As for Weidman, heâ€™s just happy to finally move on from his two fights against Anderson Silva and to prove himself against another difficult opponent.
“Even [though] the second fight, it didn’t end the way I wanted ,I felt like I dominated both fights and I knew I’m the better fighter,” Weidman said. “So I’m glad to move on and put that behind me and I’m excited to fight Lyoto Machida. He’s a tricky guy.”
