Chris Weidman picked up his first win since May of 2015 in the main event of tonight’s UFC on FOX 25 fight card from Long Island, submitting surging division contender Kelvin Gastelum in the third-round.
The victory snapped Weidman’s three-fight losing skid, as “The All American” had previously suffered knockout losses to Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero and most recently Gegard Mousasi.
Following his thrilling victory over Gastelum, Weidman proceeded to call out current middleweight champion Michael Bisping in his post-fight interview.

“I am so blessed. Lastly, that British bum who is crying who is crying in his freaking house right now. I’m back baby! I’m back! What’s up? Stop hiding from the real men. Let’s go baby! I am the champion and everybody knows it!”
Obviously Weidman was fired up after scoring his first finish since UFC 187 in May of 2015.
With that said, most fight fans are aware that Michael Bisping is actually the UFC middleweight champion of the world and that current interim title holder Robert Whittaker is next in line for a shot at “The Count”.
Still, Michael Bisping was quick to respond to Weidman with the following message on Twitter:
Say my name bitch! @ChrisWeidmanUFC
