Weidman-Belfort Finally Meet at UFC 187

Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort have been waiting to trade punches since early last year. Way back then, Weidman was a new champion with no real injury problems, and Belfort had just knocked out his last three opponents with spectacular head kicks.

They'll finally get into the cage at UFC 187 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Weidman is returning from two significant injuries, while Belfort is a different man entirely — no longer enhanced by the sanctioned steroid use that his critics feel contributed greatly to his incredible late-career surge.

After three postponements, Weidman and Belfort are eager to close this prolonged chapter when they fight for Weidman's middleweight belt at the MGM Grand Garden.
