Chris Weidman Believes He Can Make Another Run At UFC Middleweight Title Despite Injuries

Former UFC middlweight champion Chris Weidman has suffered back-to-back devastating leg injuries but he believes that he still has gas left in the tank.

During recent interviews, Weidman has stated that he has no plans on retiring despite UFC Dana White pleading with him to stop fighting after his last loss to Brad Tavares at UFC 292 in which he limped of an MCL injury.

Despite his injuries, Weidman is confident that he can still make another run at the middleweight title if he can stay healthy because of his skillset in the Octagon.

“As the camp went on, skillset wise still, if you take on skill at a time I don’t think there’s anybody in the UFC, in any division that has the skils and the standup and the wrestling and the Jiu-Jitsu like I have, if I can put it together, I think I’d be right at the top of the list”

Despite being confident in his abilities, Weidman wants to talk about the future after his fight on Saturday.

“Let’s see how I look in this fight,” said Weidman. “I could talk the talk and I could feel a certain way, but, at the end of the day, I’ve got to put the proof in the pudding. I’ve got to make it work. I’ve got to prove what I think. So it’s one fight at a time and we’ll see what happens. I go out there and I completely dominate this guy and I look great, there’s probably some big fights on the horizon for me.”
