Chris Weidman isn’t going to let Michael Bisping get under his skin. Weidman is currently rehabbing from an injury that took him out of a year-end fight with Tim Boetsch.
Bisping, who will meet Vitor Belfort later this month at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping with a chance to secure a UFC middleweight title shot, is writing a blog for Yahoo! Sports. Along with calling out fellow fighters Boetsch and Alan Belcher, “The Count” also had some words for Weidman.
“That really leaves myself and Chris ‘Sick Note’ Weidman, a nice humble guy who’s got plenty to be humble about, at the top of the rankings,” Bisping wrote. “And as Chris retired last June, there’s no doubt I’m the No. 1 contender to Anderson Silva’s world middleweight title.”
Weidman took to Twitter, responding with a jab at Bisping’s inability to secure a title shot yet inside the Octagon.
Chris “Sick Note” Weidman. bisping is getting a lil funnier in his old age 😉

Weidman’s timetable for a return is currently unknown, but with Boetsch and Belcher both falling, his status at 185 pounds didn’t take a hit.
