Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Sherdog.com contributor and SiriuxXM radio personality Danny Acosta.
With the MMA world still getting acquainted with the new middleweight landscape, Breen and Acosta discuss Chris Weidman's ascent to the 185-pound throne, his potential for UFC stardom and where he stacks up in the pound-for-pound universe. The two also reflect on Weidman's decision to fight Anderson Silva with one fight left on his contract and what it means for negotiations between the UFC and its new champion.
Breen and Acosta also discuss promoting Weidman vigoriously in New York, how long it will be before New York rappers shout him out on record, as well as the most dangerous and appealing opponents for the “All-American” ace.
