Chris Weidman, the reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Middleweight champion has been ruled out of the main event of UFC 173 due to injury with his scheduled championship match against Lyoto Machida being moved to UFC 175 as a result.
According to the UFC, Weidman will require a minor surgery on his knee but the American will be able to resume training barely two weeks after going under the knife and so, he will not have any problems whatsoever in making the headlining act at UFC 175 which is scheduled for July at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Weidman was originally scheduled to take on legendary Brazilian Vitor Belfort but after the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s decision to ban Testosterone Replacement Therapy or TRT, Belfort was removed from the card with his fellow Brazilian Lyoto Machida given a shot at the title in just his third fight in the Middleweight division.
But now, he will have to sit back a further six weeks before he can get his hands on the American who defeated the Brazilian’s close friend and legendary fighter Anderson Silva to claim the Middleweight strap.
Machida himself is a former champion in the promotion, having reigned as the UFC Light Heavyweight champion after his win against Rashad Evans, defending it once against Mauricio Rua before losing the belt in a rematch.
He was given a shot at the belt against Jon Jones at UFC 140 but failed to take it and since then, he has a record of 4-1 of which, two wins have come in the Middleweight category after Lyoto Machida cut down to the 185 lbs division as he looked to get one more shot at securing a strap with time running out on his Mixed Martial Arts and UFC career.

UFC EA Sports has already come up with their latest roster of fighters. The most recently added name is that of retired American MMA champion Forrest Griffin.
The new-genre MMA game has been designed to relive the very UFC feel as closely possible. The specification of Heavyweight Light Champion Griffin presents a virtual grin shockingly accurate to that of the reality. The actual UF winner is presently an employee with UFC catering to duties that go beyond fighting inside the cage. However, EA Sports have taken this decision to include this one of the most favored MMA heroes in their always-expanding roster.
Along with Forrest Griffin, the new EA Sports roster includes other favorites from the MMA scene. One among them is Chan Sung Jung. Griffin is famous for his typical “never-say-die” approach & seamless gas tank- thus it is sensible to introduce Chan Jung Korean Zombie alongside the the top fighter of 2010. This featherweight competitor recently battled against Jose Also & he could not leave with belt- it was his very élan to bear the punishment & fire back again received much applause. When it comes to relentless champions sans any fear for own safety, there can’t be a better fit than Jung.
The latest in-game images of the EA Sports UFC roster exhibited many other famous names. These include leading middleweight fighter Costas Philippou, Antonio Minotauro Rodrigo, the winner of Pride Heavyweight & UFC belts; Mighty Mouse Demetrious Johnson; Rashad Suga Evans, the winner of UFC championship & top 10 stalwart of Light Heavyweight Division- and trash talker Chael Sonnen. Sonnen’s fight against Silva (Anderson) won the award for being the best fight of 2010.
The UFC EA Sports is all about to launch soon this spring on Xbox1 and PlayStation 4.
