Chris Weidman injured, out of UFC 173 match with Lyoto Machida
First, the challenger was out of the Memorial Day weekend title matchup. Now, the champion is out, too. UFC middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman has been forced to withdraw from his first post-Anderson Silva defense, scrapping the proposed UFC 173 main event, FOX Sports has learned. Two sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed that Weidman would not be able to fight as the result of a minor knee injury that will require surgery. The UFC corroborated the information in a follow-up text to FOX Sports, and said that his match against Lyoto Machida will be moved to UFC 175 on July 5. One of the sources told FOX Sports that on Monday, Weidman saw a doctor that affirmed an original prognosis that ruled him out of the May 24 matchup in Las Vegas.
