Chris Weidman – UFC champ and noted Anderson Silva-destroyer – is every bit as wholesome and awe-shucks American as you can get. But did you know he’s quite the ladies man, as well? Case in point: the suave moves he pulled off to secure the undying love of the woman who would become his wife.

Below is a video interview he did with Karyn Bryant. In it, the best middleweight fighter in the world recalls the first date he ever had with his future-wife. There was charm, there was wit, and there was uncontrollable diarrhea unleashed upon a hapless garbage can (and the inevitable stains on the rug). I supposed I should warn you that this could be a scene right out of an American Pie movie, but whatever. Watch and enjoy.
