Weidman vs. Beflort Rumoured To Be Rescheduled For UFC 187

A new date has been released for the highly anticipated Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman fight after being rescheduled numerous times. According to sources the middleweight title fight is looking as if it will be scheduled for Memorial day weekend (May 23rd) in Las Vegas. Contracts have yet to be signed, but the official announcement should be released within the coming days.

In July, Vitor received his license to fight, and the contest versus Weidman was rescheduled for December 6th, at UFC 181. Weidman then suffered a hand injury forcing the date to be rescheduled yet again.

The May 23rd date was listed in the UFC’s calendar as UFC 187. According to rumours, UFC 187 could also hold the Jon Jones’ title defense versus the steamrolling Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.
