Former Champion Chris Weidman Issues Statement On Tough Knockout Loss To Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza At UFC 230
Last night (Sat, Nov 3, 2018) in the co-main event of UFC 230 former Strikeforce middleweight king and submission specialist Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza Chris violently stops former champion Chris Weidman with a brutal right hand on the forehead that dropped “The All-American” to the floor, a knockout was so sudden, as followup wasn’t needed. Souza forced to throw some uncontested strikes before referee Dan Miragliotta stepped in to stop the action.
Weidman 34, entered into the contest after losing three of his last four fights and was in dire need of a win but unfortunately, things didn’t go the way ‘The All American’ planned.

“Unfortunately last night didn’t workout for me,” he said in his post. “Congrats to Jacare & his family & team on a amazing win. He is a true warrior & it was an honor to share the octagon with him. Thanks to everyone for the support, love & prayers. I appreciate it all. I will be back better from this!”
Ronaldo Souza also issues a classy statement on his fight against Weidman.
“I hope you well champion I am your big fan and thank you for giving me the opportunity to fight you”
Weidman is 14-4 overall, and 1-4 in his last five fights.
what the future holds for Chris Weidman is remain to be seen.
