Former UFC champion Chris Weidman back in the Octagon this weekend

Former UFC Middleweight Champion, Hofstra University graduate and Baldwin native Chris Weidman is back in the Octagon this weekend.
On August 8, Weidman is in the co-main event against Omari Akmedov. Weidman says he doesn't care about proving the haters wrong, but wants to prove something to himself.
The Baldwin native, who was an all-American wrestler at Hofstra and became champion of the world in the UFC is at a crossroads—professionally and personally.
Weidman says he is moving to South Carolina to be with family.
