QUOTE

Chris Weidman:
“We knew that in the last fight he hurt me most with the leg kicks so we trained checking them a lot. The goal is to get your knee up and allow them to make contact with their shin right there. As soon as he hit me with that kick and moved backwards I knew right away. There’s no real excitement in a fight finishing like that because you never want to see anyone get hurt like that. I think people haven’t connected with me quite yet because I’m still young in this sport. They don’t realize that I’ve really only been at this a few years and it’s always going to take the fans time to adjust to new faces. Soon people will come to terms with the fact that I’m here to stay. I thought I was close to finishing him in the first round. He hit me with a couple good shots but they didn’t hurt. I could’ve eaten those all day. It didn’t matter what he did tonight. Hands up or hands down I was ready for him.”
