Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman has responded to a procession of Twitter callouts from Italian contender Marvin Vettori.

Vettori has been calling Weidman out with great enthusiasm this week, after Weidman rebounded from a string of losses with a decision in over Omari Akhmedov last weekend.

“Weidman looked horrible tonight,” Vettori wrote shortly after Weidman defeated Akhmedov. “He’s a former champion let me whip his boring ass next. Guarantee you he will hide like all the other guys. Me against @chrisweidman needs to happen.”

“I swear I’ll have weidman begging me for air by the 2nd,” he added later in the week. “Let’s book this!”

“Hei Chris how are you? Just checking on you making sure you still wanna be relevant in this division,” Vettori added most recently. “See you soon Christina.”

It took some time, but Weidman has finally responded to these callouts from Vettori, and he doesn’t seem to be all that interested in a prospective showdown with the Italian.

“Yo, Dork hop off my nuts and get a win over someone in the top 15 for 1st time in ur life,” Weidman wrote. “I have been beating guys in the top 15 for ten years straight. Relevant? There’s a reason you are calling me out. I’ll fight again when I’m ready too. And btw you aren’t that good”
