Default Chris Weidman vs. Jack Hermansson set as main event for UFC Oklahoma City

Former champion Chris Weidman is headed back to middleweight for his next fight where he will face Jack Hermansson in the five-round main event of UFC Oklahoma City on May 2.

The headlining fight was confirmed to MMA Fighting by multiple sources close to the situation with verbal agreements in place. ESPN initially reported the contest and the bout was later announced by the UFC.

Following a one-fight stint at light heavyweight, Weidman confirmed his plans to move back to 185 pounds where he previously reigned as champion.

The New York native is currently suffering through the toughest run of his entire career with a 1-5 record in his past six fights with his lone win coming against Kelvin Gastelum back in 2017. Outside of that victory, Weidman has suffered knockouts in all five losses including his only fight at 205 pounds where he was toppled by recent title contender Dominick Reyes in the opening round.

Now Weidman will return to his old stomping grounds at middleweight as he looks to get back in the win column starting in May.

As for Hermansson, the 31-year-old Swedish fighter made waves after putting together an impressive four-fight win streak including finishes against David Branch and Gerald Meerschaert. He also picked up a high profile win against Ronald “Jacare” Souza in his first main event with the UFC.

Most recently, Hermansson suffered a TKO loss to rising middleweight contender Jared Cannonier but he will seek another statement win while facing a former champion in Weidman in May.

Weidman has been getting beat down too much lately.

Might need to call it quits.

Might be a little too late to choose a pure grappler to protect Weidman's cracked chin at this point. But would still love to see him rematch Rockhold on a big card with lots of build up to be honest, sort of a "one last triumph, both men walk away after" sort of deal.

If he loses this one, he really has to consider retiring...
