Hurricane Sandy has been sweeping the nation as of late. The aftermath has took many people’s homes and Chris Weidman’s home can be added to the list. This news comes from Ryan Bader via Twitter:
Thoughts go out to @chrisweidmanufc & his family. Lost his home in the storm on the east coast.Please show him your support. @magllc@ufc
This news is unfortunate for Chris, and my deepest sympathies go out to him and anyone who is being affected by this devastating storm. Hopefully, the storm will subside and people will be able get back on their feet after this natural disaster.
Ariel Helwani also reported on Weidman’s situation via Twitter:
@ChrisWeidmanUFC just texted me that he is OK, and according to his manager @magllc, his family is OK too.
Thankfully Chris and his family are safe, and it is my hope that everyone took the necessary precautions in order to prevent something severe from happening. Chris is expected to take on Tim Boetsch later this year, which would be a fight that could possible determine the next challenger in the middleweight division.
Hopefully, this tragedy won’t take away from his focus during training camps because Weidman has showed some serious potential as of late. This is clearly evident when he beat Mark Munoz in dominating fashion. Many believe he will be the man to dethrone Anderson Silva when it is all said an done with. First, he has to get past Boetsch which takes place later this year.
