Chris Weidman UFC on Fuel TV 4 280x200 High Profile Middleweight Bout Added to UFC 155 CardThe end of the year UFC 155 event got a little a nice addition this week as Middleweight contender Chris Weidman finally gets an opponent. While it wasn’t the matchup with Anderson Silva he wanted it is a top-level matchup with in the UFC middleweight division. Instead the undefeated grappler will take on Tim Boetsch in what could step up the next opponent for “The Spider”.

Weidman (9-0) is coming off the biggest win of his young career with a second round knockout win against the top ranked Mark Munoz. Coming into that bout Munoz was on the doorsteps of a title shot and Weidman just crashed the party by completely dominating “The Filipino Wrecking Machine”. Post fight Weidman asked for a shot at the champion Anderson Silva but that request fell on deaf ears.

Boetsch (16-4) spoiled the UFC debut of Hector Lombard at UFC 149, earning a split decision victory over the former Bellator middleweight champion. Lombard was riding a massively long winning streak and Boetsch made him look ordinary inside the Octagon. A former light heavyweight, Boetsch has gone 4-0 and looked very tough since moving down to middleweight.

The Weidman vs. Boetsch showdown will most likely appear on the night’s main card, which takes place on December 29th. UFC 155 will be headlined by a heavyweight championship rematch between Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez.
