Chris Weidman Injured Again, Rousey vs. Zingano Now Headlines UFC 184

I know what youâ??re thinking, â??A champion who canâ??t stay healthy? WHAT SPORT IS THIS?â??

Well, itâ??s MMA, dum-dum. Nothing ever goes according to plan; just ask Alexander Gustafsson. Or middleweight champ Chris Weidman, for that matter, who has once again been forced out of his bout with Vitor Belfort due to injury. We now kick it to our man in the field, Bunk Moreland, for analysisâ?¦

According to multiple sources, Weidman has gone down with a rib cartilage injury. As of this write-up, there is no expected timetable for his return.

Something about how Weidman and Belfort were originally scheduled to fight at UFC 173 until Vitor pulled out in the wake of the TRT ban. Something else about how they were rescheduled for UFC 181 until Weidman broke his hand.

Regardless, the womenâ??s bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano originally scheduled for UFC 181 has now been bumped back to serve as the headliner for UFC 184. But rest assured, a card co-mained by Jake Ellenberger vs. Josh Koscheck will now cost us 5 more dollars than it did last year.

Something about Ronda Rouseyâ??s recent fights.

Something about Cat Zinganoâ??s recent fights.

Anything else to add, Bunk?

Yeah, that about sums it up. This sport is killing us. Goodnight.
