Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Chris Weidman Swagger-Jacks Mark Munoz, Undergoes Elbow Surgery

(I guess we could caption this, but wrestling has a way of sometimes looking funny enough on its own.)

#1 middleweight contender Middleweight Chris Weidman just can’t let Mark Munoz have his own moment. First, Weidman spoiled Munoz’ hopes of earning a title shot. Now, just days after we found out Munoz injured his foot and will be out for some time, and also that his elbow is still jacked up from nasty bone chips, Weidman decided that he needed elbow surgery to remove bone chips as well.

We suppose its possible that Weidman’s elbow surgery is unrelated to sticking it to Munoz. MMA Fighting has the report. “[Weidman] underwent surgery at the Sanford Surgical Tower on his left elbow to clean out bone chips that had developed over time.”

According to the report, Weidman had been dealing with elbow issues for over two years. With a few months before he’s scheduled to fight Tim Boetsch, Weidman reportedly felt this was a good time to get his ‘bow fixed up. Hopefully his surgery and recovery go better than Munoz’.

“According to Weidman’s doctors, he will be back to full strength in three-to-six weeks. Weidman expects to return to his home in Long Island, N.Y., in a two days, and he will be able to resume cardio training next week,” MMA Fighting reported.

Side note, ‘taters – we are now taking bets on just how many fights Weidman will have to win before he gets the title shot he already deserves. We’ll call it the Okami over-under.

- Elias Cepeda

very interesting post.
The Oracle of MMA- September 9, 2012 at 8:29 pm
Anderson Silva will NEVER fight Weidman, Belcher or Boetsch. NEVER! To think that he would actually fight #1 contenders like a real champ is pure folly. He will duck every legitimate contender in favor of 1 perhaps 2 "super fights" where he is the much larger man in the octagon. He will then retire and every mma writer will hang off his nutsack for years.

So sayeth the Oracle and so it shall be.

he will fight weidman he just needs a couple more wins. belcher and boetch dont deserve title shots at all yet, if they get some impressive wins over a few big names or dont fluke the wins like boetch does and its cool. silva has acheived more than any person who has stepped into the octogon, man deserves a few ball clingers

Yes, the guy who has never lost in the UFC and doesn't have a legitimate loss in over 7 years is ducking the guy with a 9-0 record. Maybe you should direct me to your weedman, because I want what you're smoking.

Fuck Boetsch, let Weidman fight Belcher to finally establish a number 1 contender. Although this way A.Silva has two opponents, Weidman once he beats Boetsch then Belcher after he beats whoever they put in front of him.

Weidman deserves a shot at the champ but as long as they don't have a ranking system in the UFC the Baldfather can match up anyone he damn well wants.

This dude has no chance against the spider lmao

So this won't keep him out of the Boetsch fight at 155?
Elias- September 9, 2012 at 9:06 pm
Nope, not according to what he and his doctors reportedly expect

This is good on Weedman. Get the chips out, and wreck everyone else who the Ufc decides is better than you for the #1 contender. Keep ducking, Spider!
