So where does Weidman go from here? I don't think he deserves as much heat as he gets for losing the last three fights he had. They were against monsters.

But the damage he is taking worries me. That punch that knocked him out last night was weird.

well if his money's right(which it probably isn't), retirement would be cool.

Didnít Weismann buy a 50k dollar dog?

lol it was a $1,400 dog but it was still a stupid thing to finance, especially when you're broke

quote:

"He was essentially homeless," his coach Danaher says. "He was financially completely bankrupt. I remember I had to lend Chris thousands of dollars out of my own pocket just to keep him solvent while he's preparing to fight Silva. And his life was essentially in chaos. One day when people know the full story of what happened, I'm not kidding when I say this, it's like a goddamn Hollywood movie. It's Rocky Balboa. It's insane."

Weidman himself talks about his hardships before his strong left hand changed his portfolio.

"I could never do much," he says. "Everything was about not having money. We bought a dog, and we financed it - a $1,400 dog. We had no money, so me and my wife had to put our names together with our credit just to finance a dog. This was well before [the title fight with Silva], but it took like three years to pay it off, so I ended up paying like $3,800 for a $1,400 dog."

I really do hope he's better with money now and he's done commercial endorsements for extra cash on the side as well as making millions for his fights in total but getting punched in the head for a living never makes for the strongest financial base, especially when it started out bad to begin with

Imagine having the drive and determination to become a UFC champ by destroying prime Anderson Silva (twice) but getting roasted because you bought a dog with papers on credit :p

I mean if a store told me they'd give me a really nice ring that I was going to have to pay for anyway for doing that silly few second spot I'd probably say why not

My favorite part of that commercial is that they kept the card he's reading from so far away from the camera and told him to try to be positioned forward

It was just announced that Floyd is fighting Tenshin Nasukawa for RIZIN on new years eve - so I guess Conor is going to have to be his second MMA fight

MMA in general in 2018 is just one wild thing after another

Mayweather pulling Fedor and cashing in on those Japanese circus new years eve shows. Can't blame him retirement is probably boring also its better to have more millions than less. The next ultimate fighter should have the winner box Floyd.

Well, according to Joe Rogan, the more muscle mass you have the easier it is to cut weight since muscles are filled with water. PMP will be just fine.
