Chris Weidman-Yoel Romero Officially Added To UFC 205

0

Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will get his homecoming after all, as he meets Yoel Romero at UFC 205.

The promotion finally confirmed the long-rumored fight for the November event on Tuesday, hours after announcing Conor McGregor would challenge Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title.

Weidman, a 32-year-old native of Baldwin, New York, last competed in December when he was bested by Luke Rockhold for the belt. That loss snapped a 13-fight win streak for “The All-American.”

Romero (12-1) is unbeaten inside the Octagon, winning each of his seven bouts. That includes victories over Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Lyoto Machida and Tim Kennedy.

UFC 205 takes place November 12 from Madison Square Garden and features three title fights along with Weidman-Romero.
