Give Weidman a tune-up fight after the long layoff, say against Rockhold for the SF title and number 1 contendership to expose Chris to a wider audience on say, a co-main PPV.
I am down with this too.
Usually, I would have said that Rashad (like Sonnen, Diaz and Frankie) would be getting the shot after coming off a title fight loss but since Rashad is fighting Lil Nog in 2 weeks, he may actually do it after a win. If he beats Lil Nog impressively, and goes on the mic to challenge Anderson, I think UFC will make it happen.
and even though Weidman is clearly the top contender to that belt, it would be nice for him to get a fight in coming off an injury. The fight with Rockhold would do that.
