Trainer Ray Longo recently appeared on The MMA Hour about his Chris Weidman’s upcoming fight against Lyoto Machida at UFC 175 and says his fighter is going to crush the Brazilian challenger:

“I got total confidence in Chris no matter who you put in front of him. I think it’s pretty obvious Belfort is more aggressive. Machida is more laid back and tries to counter punch, but he’ll adjust to either guy. So we planned everything around a counter fighter. He’s the champion and he’s going to beat everyone they put in front of him, that’s the way you have to be when your champion.”

“I think Weidman is going to do what he always does. He’s going to get in that ring, he’s going to go forward and he’s going to impose his will on Machida. He is going to make Machida fight his game and he is going to probably just end up crushing the guy. Crushing means there is a good chance he’ll dump him on his head and does what he wants with him.”

“I think he’s got a real weak chin. That’s his weakest hole. Weidman hits that guy, he’ll hurt him bad. That’s why he likes to control the pace of the fight. I don’t think he likes to be pushed.”
