Former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman will be taking on Gegard Mousasi this April at UFC 210. Weidman is promising a return to form at the event.
“This next fight, a lot of mistakes I made the last two fights, this fight is going to be going back to the old me, going back to beating the crap out of people,” Weidman said on The MMA Hour.
Weidman also shoots back on some claims that Mousasi made in the past.
“He was implying on Twitter as if I turned down a fight with him,” Weidman said. “Which was one of those things like I’ve never turned down a fight in my life, so right away my ego is going in like this guy wants me to start cursing him out and going nuts and telling everyone the truth. I’m like whatever, let’s get this date and get the fight signed. Once he started talking, I was like this is the guy I want, I’m going to make him pay, but I didn’t feel like going on a whole Twitter rant about it. I just made sure this fight was the one that was going to happen.”
UFC 210 takes place on Saturday, April 8 from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y., with no main event announced at this time.
