Despite being king of the UFC middleweight division, Chris Weidman’s title fight against Luke Rockhold is not the biggest fight of the night at UFC 194.
Las Vegas is likely to be coloured green on the weekend when Irish fight fans flood in to the city to watch Conor McGregor’s featherweight fight with Jose Aldo in the co-main event.
But Weidman, like McGregor is also unbeaten in the UFC.
He stunned MMA fans when he stopped Anderson Silva, the planet’s best fighter, in 2013 to take his belt. He then defended his crown again that year in a rematch with Silva and went on to see off Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort.
His belt is on the line once again at the MGM on Saturday 12 December where Weidman will aim to make it 14 MMA wins and zero losses.
Standing in his way is Rockhold, who comes into the 185-pound fight at 14-2 – check out his best bits here.
