UFC Announces Chris Weidman – Gegard Mousasi Bout Set

Chris Weidman

Recently Gegard Mousasi called on Chris Weidman to accept a bout that had been tabled by the UFC, and now the promotion has announced a date for the match-up.

The middleweight contenders will battle at UFC 210, which will take place on April 8th in Buffalo, New York. The upcoming card will be hosted by the KeyBank Center.

Weidman (13-2) is looking to get back on track, as the former middleweight champ has been stopped by Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero in consecutive fights.

Mousasi (41-6-2), on the other hand, has won four in a row. Most recently the veteran fighter avenged a previous loss to Uriah Hall, by stopping the latter in round one.

That’s big stakes fight for both men, as the loser could very well exit the middleweight division’s top five ranks.
