The ex-UFC middleweight champion played around in the ring and showed no respect to his opponent Chris Weidman, who entered the ring very confidently.
“It [ticked] me off when someone tries to do that [clown around with] me,” said Weidman, who improved to 10-0.
Consequently, the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) powerhouse and one of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport, got knocked to the mat, losing his long-standing title to Weidman.
“I felt I was destined for this,” Weidman said. “I imagined doing this many times in my head, but it’s surreal.”
