UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman did the unthinkable earlier this year by not only beating Anderson Silva but finishing the former title-holder before the bout’s midway point had even arrived. The victory cemented his status as one of the brightest young stars to come along in some time and showed a level of skill above that possessed by his peers. As such, it’s hard to believe Weidman was a victim of vicious bullying with an older brother often serving as ringleader. The 29-year old recently sat down with Bobby Razak to speak about his journey to the top, reflecting on how the adversity helped mold him into a man while also touching on how his life had changed since winning the belt and what he’s using for motivating entering his December 28 tilt with Silva at UFC 168.
