Dana White Recommends Chris Weidman To Hung Up His Gloves Or Return To UFC Middleweight Division
Chris Weidman was on a very cold streak before his UFC 205-pound debut last night (Friday, October 18, 2019).
In the main event of UFC Boston, he squared off against an undefeated prospect Dominick “The Devastator” Reyes, who countered Chris with a big punch and finished him with a barrage of ground strikes in the first round.
Before the match, Chris Weidman said that he felt better at 205. Following Weidman’s UFC on ESPN 6 loss, UFC president Dana White advised him to quit fighting or go twenty pounds south and return to UFC 185-pound weight class.
“This was his move up to light heavyweight, which obviously didn’t go well for him. So maybe he goes back down to middleweight or he thinks about maybe retiring.”
Chris Weidman scored only one win in his last 6 matches. Before Reyes, he was finished by Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero, Gegard Mousasi, and Jacare Souza. What do you think, what’s next for the former UFC middleweight king?
