Chris Weidman on ESPN

The biggest event in UFC history is just eight days away. At UFC 168, the greatest fighter to ever set foot inside the Octagon returns against the man that knocked him out only six months ago. Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva will battle in what is sure to be a legacy defining moment for both men. Can Weidman defeat the greatest of all time twice? Can Anderson return with a renewed focus, and dominate Weidman like he has to so many of his opponents?

All of our questions will be answered in just over a week. In the meantime, the UFC is ramping up the promotion for the event, including multiple previews, replays of their first fight, analysis from other fighters, and media tours. One such media outlet is ESPN. Chris Weidman made his rounds yesterday on ESPN appearing on SportsCenter and on ‘Highly Questionable’ with Dan Le Batard.

In the video above, you can watch Weidman’s segment on Highly Questionable. Weidman talks about his brother and his brother’s friends bullying him as a child, his trials and tribulations to becoming a UFC champion, having to wear makeup, and a lot more.

The video below is a funny short that ESPN did with Weidman and two former football players.

Remember to check back on Fansided, as we will have all the coverage you need for UFC 168. In the next week we will have predictions, GIF previews, live stream of the weigh-ins and prelims, play by play of the main card, and much more.
