    Can't imagine that he was actually on board to be homeless.

    I think were not hearing the entire story, his house did get flooded,so of course he is going to be "homeless" but I don't believe after nine fights, nine wins he was broke, an if so,then he should budget better. Not to mention the UFC paid a portion of his medical bills,and Dana has been well known to give fighters financial help when they need it. I just don't believe this 100%.

    Didnt Weidman's house get jacked up in the floods last year? I am sure that had a big financial hit.

    personally I hear about these kinds of stories and then I hear about Dana White blowing millions at the blackjack table. I know it's a free country and he doesn't have to give a shit, but I couldn't sleep at night if I had an employee who lost everything to Sandy and I was in a position to help out. Yeah you can't help everybody, but you can help a few people.

    Another proof that unless you love MMA so damn much, you should have also another job.
    Being a Top UFC fighter and being almost homeless?? That sucks!

    Glad to hear Weidman is doing well. I'd like to hear that others who lost their homes during Sandy are doing well too though. Any time families are displaced due to almost any reason, it's heartbreaking.

    Better have gotten compensated well because Silva's taking his belt back!
