Just two days after what was arguably the greatest fight in Ultimate
Fighting Championship history, the hype-train is back on track to
promote what’s arguably even bigger: UFC 168 Weidman vs. Silva II
on December 28.
During the Los Angeles stop of his World Tour yesterday, UFC
middleweight champ Chris Weidman crammed all sorts of Hollywood
goodness into his day: trips to the Heidi & Frank and Jay Mohr
radio shows, a face and body scan at EA Sports, and finally a stop
at the UFC Gym in Torrance where he fielded fan questions alongside
Anderson Silva and UFC president Dana White.
As expected, the friendly banter has officially begun: “If he
doesn’t beat me up too bad, I’ll invite him to a barbeque,” said
Silva of his December rematch. We can’t wait.
