The question of “what to do with Chris Weidman” now has an answer. The middleweight contender will face fellow contender Tim Boetsch at UFC 155 this December in Las Vegas. Foxsports.com first reported the story.
Weidman destroyed Mark Munoz at UFC on FUEL TV 4 this past July. While the Hofstra product had hoped to receive a title shot, UFC President Dana White recently announced that Weidman would need another victory to gain a title shot.
Tim Boetsch has gone 4-0 since dropping to middleweight. “The Barbarian” recently took a split decision victory at UFC 149 over Hector Lombard.
UFC 155 is expected to be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between champion Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez in a rematch of their UFC on Fox 1 bout. The card will also feature a light heavyweight rematch between Forrest Griffin and Chael Sonnen. The card will take place December 29.
