Chris Weidman out of UFC 155. Philippou to replace.

Quote:
Long Island's Chris Weidman, one of the top UFC middleweight fighters, is out of UFC 155 next month with an undisclosed injury, Newsday has learned.

He was scheduled to fight Tim Boetsch on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas.

"It's awful," trainer Ray Longo said.

Instead, Boetsch will fight Costa Philippou, a teammate of Weidman's with Longo and Matt Serra. Philippou was supposed to fight this past Saturday against Nick Ring at UFC 154 in Montreal, but the bout was canceled that morning when Ring fell ill.

"Everything happens for a reason," Longo said. "I guess this is the reason."

Weidman (9-0, 5-0 UFC) had emerged as a top contender for Anderson Silva's title with wins over Demian Maia and Mark Munoz.

Philippou (10-2, 4-1) has quietly won four straight in the UFC with his precision striking and improving takedown defense.

Everything always balances out. Did NOT like that match up anyways. It should be Weidman vs Belcher. Bisping vs Okami cuz he's gonna have a helluve match up against Vitor. Vitor just fought so he can take a break or wait for the winner of Weidman and Belcher or Bisping vs Okami.

But it looks like the bouts are set.

Bisping vs Vitor
Belcher vs Okami
Toquino vs Lombard (interesting match up although I would have liked to see Lombard vs Vitor)

I like Sideways too but there are barriers man!

I do feel for Boetsch though. If he beat Weidman he would of got a title shot or a go at the Bisping/Belfort winner. Now what? Imagine theres an upset and Boetsch loses? He'll end up going from one fight away from title shot to like 3 or 4!

So, who would Boetsch(the guy that just finished Okami) fight in your little world?

Boetsch is gonna smash this guy.
