The MMA Hour was FULL yesterday. Kevin Lee, Fedor Emelianenko, Chris Weidman, and Eddie Alvarez were on the program. An item of note was Chris Weidman’s prediction that he would dominate the middleweight division on his return. He was finished by Luke Rockhold and lost the middleweight title, then finished by Yoel Romero, and to top off a three fight skid he was finished by Gegard Mousasi. He bounced back and pulled off a submission win over Kelvin Gastelum. Was that the start of a comeback? Check out what he said…
Former middleweight champion Chris Weidman has a tough road ahead.

They will fight for the interim belt because GSP came back, beat champion Michael Bisping, and then promptly vacated it. Romero was considered the heir apparent to the title but after a solid run he lost to Robert Whittaker in his first try at the interim belt. The craziness of needing two belts is another article for another day. Check out Romero’s crushing 3rd round finish of Chris Weidman at UFC 205.
Chris Weidman has had a rough go since losing his middleweight title to Luke Rockhold. Then, Michael Bisping knocked out Luke and the title picture is muddy at the moment to say the least. Bisping has narrowly defeated Dan Henderson and is now squaring off against former welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre later this year. … Read more
