Chris Weidman is a little concerned with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The two are set to face each other in July at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman.
Recently, though, “The Spider” decided to leave the U.S. for Brazil prior to several planned interviews to promote the event. The UFC fined him $50,000, and caused Weidman a sense of panic to say the least.
“I just want to make sure we both get in the fricken’ cage July 6,” said Weidman, during an interview with MMAjunkie.com. “I’m still worried about that. I don’t want him to hear this interview and be like, ‘Oh, that’s a good idea.’ So, don’t use this, Anderson.”
Weidman, unbeaten in his MMA career, earned his title shot by defeating Mark Munoz last year. Silva is a perfect 16-0 in his UFC career and 33-4 overall.
