    So tell me, what's next for the former UFC Middleweight Champ Chris Weidman?

    No fight scheduled, want a title shot but he doesn't deserve it.

    And yet he is still his father's boy.

    What will happen to him, and who will he be fighting?

    The Jacare fight makes the most sense right now.

    On the one hand I’d like to see Jacare/Weidman in the other I think Jacare should get the next title shot as is.

    Maybe the Chris vs The Salt 2?

    I want to see Chris beat another tough upcomer say Pedro. Then he is should fight for #1 contender vs Jacare maybe. I just think he should still get 1 or 2 more good wins before another title shot.

    That.

    Or how he got exposed as soon as he had to fight a top 5 guy who wasn't an old, past prime Brazilian legend.

    It's really one or the other with teh Chris.

    I say its the former.

    Because his performance wasn't the only thing that changed post USADA.
    So did this body and overall size.

    He was asked about his weight and size prior to the Rockhold fight and his excuse was that he wanted to be faster.
    And yet he is smaller AND slower.

    Even if you think it just backfired somehow ... why would you want to be smaller fighting the biggest opponent you ever fought at MW? Pretty dumb even IF we believe his lie.

    I remember when people just really think that he would be the next MW GOAT... Big hype all over this guy.

    He has looked suspiciously different after USADA came to town. I like him, I think Jac will be his next fight for sure, and I don't want to imply he is a cheater, but...

    Weidman really fell from grace real hard, Hendricks and Barao style.
