UFC Boston Results and Highlights

Former middleweight champion Chris Weidman will make the jump to light heavyweight to take on perennial contender Dominick Reyes in tonight’s UFC Boston headliner.

Chris Weidman (14-4 MMA) will enter tonight’s UFC Boston main event looking for a fresh start.

‘The All American’ went just 1-4 over his past five fights in the middleweight division, suffering knockout losses to Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero, Gegard Mousasi and most recently Jacare Souza during that stretch.

Weidman’s most recent win came in July of 2017 when he defeated Kelvin Gastelum by way of submission at UFC Uniondale.

Meanwhile, Dominick Reyes (11-0 MMA) will be looking to keep his perfect record intact when he squares off with Chris Weidman this evening.

In his most recent effort at March’s UFC London event, Reyes picked up a decision victory over former division title challenger Volkan Oezdemir.

Yair Rodriguez, Jeremy Stephens

The co-main event of UFC Boston will feature a highly anticipated featherweight rematch between Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens.

The pair squared off last month at UFC Mexico, but the bout was called off just seconds after the fight started due to an accidental eye poke that prevented Stephens from being able to continue.

Prior to his no-contest with ‘Lil Heathen’, Yair Rodriguez (11-2 MMA) was coming off a spectacular last-second knockout of The Korean Zombie.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Stephens will hope to snap a two-fight losing skid when he meets ‘El Pantera’ this evening.
