The Former 185-Pound Champ Chris Weidman Moves One Division Up!

It looks like Chris Weidman is ending his Middleweight journey, and he is ready to start a new chapter of his fighting career.

Weidman announced his intention to move a division up earlier. The former 185-pound king plans to return this fall. According to Ariel Helwani from ESPN, Chris will definitively change the weight class.

Chris Weidman just said on the #HelwaniRadioShow moments that he has decided to move up to 205 pounds. He hopes to return around October. We’re live for the next hour+. 1-888-SAY-ESPN.

Chris Weidman (14-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) scored only one win in his last five bouts. He was finished by Jacare Souza at UFC 230. Prior to that, “The All-American” earned a submission win over Kelvin Gastelum and lost to Gegard Mousasi, Yoel Romero, and Luke Rockhold via stoppage.

Weidman’s next rival is unknown at the moment. There is a chance he might square off against Glover Teixeira or Aleksandar Rakic. It should definitively be someone from top 15. Maybe moving a division up is a great way to end his cold streak.

Give us your thoughts on this. Is this a good choice for Weidman?
