First off, I want to thank God for my life, my abilities and surrounding me with an amazing support system. Thank you to all of my family, friends, coaches and fans that have stood by me in the last 18 months. All of you have provided much needed fuel and reinforcement which allowed me to push forward, sometimes on blind faith. To my wife and kids, you guys mean the world to me, you absolutely keep me going! To be able to compete in Nassau Coliseum in my own backyard Saturday night in front of 10,000 + people and have the performance I did, in the situation I was in, was way beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you to everyone that came out to the Nassau Coliseum, whether you cheered me or booed me, you all helped create a amazing moment. I also want to send a shout out to Kelvin Gastelum, a class act and a true warrior – by any standard, Kelvin is a champion and, without question, is the future of the UFC.
Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman had an epic performance this past weekend at UFC on FOX 25, submitting Kelvin Gastelum.
Weidman, a proud New Yorker, reflected on the victory with an Instagram post on Monday.
