Chris Weidman is the UFC middleweight champ, so you’d think he has at least some pull in regards to who he gets to fight and where. If that’s the case, then you can bet he’ll be fighting at the UFC’s first event at Madison Square Garden (which will likely happen in December).
Ron Kruck over at AXS-TV caught up with Weidman recently and asked him about all that MSG stuff. Yeah, it’s a pretty big deal to him – as it should be – and Weidman is also keen on having a superfight with champ Jon Jones to determine the true “king of New York”.
I can’t say I disagree with Weidman on any of that stuff. MSG would be awesome, and him versus Jones would be epic.
