Two top middleweight contenders will meet in December at UFC 155 when Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) takes on Tim Boetsch (16-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC).

Multiple outlets, including foxsports.com and newsday.com, today reported that verbal agreements are in place. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) subsequently confirmed it.

The fight will be part of the main card of UFC 155, which takes place Dec. 29 in Las Vegas at a venue to be announced.

The main card, including a heavyweight title fight between champion Junior Dos Santos and former titleholder Cain Velasquez, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

YES!

I sooooooo hope Boetsch smashes Weidman (and then goes on to defeat Anderson Silva in what would have to be the greatest fluke winning streak in MMA history).

In all seriousness though, Weidman ought to win this.

Always excited to see a great prospect rising, and always excited to see the Barbarian do his thing.

I like it. Thought Chris needed at least one more fight before stepping into the title picture. Tim is no joke either. Should be a good scrap.

picking Weidman. rooting for Boetsch.

does this mean Belcher will get the Stann/Bisping winner? or do you think he'll still get Vitor if/when he loses to JJ?

Probably the Stann vs. Bisping winner, although Michael Bisping ($$$) still seems the likeliest contender to face Silva in the likely event the superfight falls through.

Weidman vs. Boetsch makes sense. The winner obviously deserves a title shot.

I always hate these matches, where someone I like has to lose. It should be a great fight though. From Boetsch's epic judo toss of Nick Ring and brutal uppercut KO of Okami, to Weidman's savaging of Munoz and Lawler, these guys have shown that more often than not they bring it.

Agreed except Anthony Perosh and Mark Hunt went 3-o and if you told me 4 years ago that it'd happen id have called you stupid!

Man this is Weidman all day...I feel sorry for Boetsch....Weidman will make a point in this fight and call out Silva....Silva wont be able to run from Weidman after this...

I want the UFC to get its act together on making fighters who hold the belt fight at least once every four months...Ridiculous for a champion to say hes taking six months off or he doesnt want to fight such and such...

Weidman by submission because he wants to...

Is this GIF from the "Leonard" series? I watched "Leonard Part 6" at four in the morning on television once and I felt like I'd just been through a bad trip.

Good to hear.

Weidman hadn't earned the shot yet. The timing of this is a little bit weird though.

If they are planning to do GSP vs Silva then Weidman will have to wait a long time to get his title shot.

Do you guys think Weidman would sit out and wait or would he take a fight against Belcher or Stann/Bisping in the mean time?

Don't say you forgot as well p$! Tim didn't judo toss Nick Ring! He judo tossed Phil Davis! Duh

This is a sick fight though, Wiedman will have trouble taking down a heavier man. If he can TD Tim he can easily takedown Silva IMO
