It would seem that an elbow surgery to Chris Weidman is nothing more than minor hiccup in the surging prospect’s rise in the UFC middleweight division. As recently announced, Weidman will face off with Tim Boetsch at UFC 155 on December 29 in Las Vegas, but the undefeated middleweight just went under the knife to have bone fragments removed form his elbow.
According to the Hofstra wrestler, he will be fully-recovered within 3-6 weeks and can begin light training as soon as tomorrow. Weidman took to twitter to announce that he is “feeling great” and will be back to work as soon as possible. The Serra-Longo’s upcoming bout with Boetsch is considered by many to be a de facto title eliminator, and news of Weidman being able to make the bout at 100% makes it all the more promising.
