Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold Added to UFC’s December Schedule
By FCF Staff
UFC 194 will almost certainly be an historic night for the promotion, as today it announced that middleweight champion Chris Weidman will face Luke Rockhold at the December 12th event.
The card, which will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will also feature featherweight champ Jose Aldo taking on Conor McGregor.
Rockhold (14-2) has earned a title shot thanks to a four fight winning streak, which includes stoppage wins over Costas Philippou, Tim Boetsch, Michael Bisping and Lyoto Machida.
Weidman (13-0) is coming off a quick, stoppage win over Vitor Belfort in May, after earning a decision win over Machida last July.
No other bouts have been confirmed yet for the December 12th card.
