Chris Weidman is the man who ended Anderson Silva’s long reign atop the middleweight division.
And he’s the man who bested Silva a second time.
He also defeated Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort while UFC middleweight champion.
But Weidman’s upcoming rematch with Luke Rockhold for the title he lost last December is one that could ultimately define his career.
While hosting a “Q&A” session on Twitter Friday, “The All-American” explained just what the second meeting with Rockhold means to him. The bout is set for UFC 199 in Los Angeles.
