Think You Know Chris Weidman?

When he’s not in the Octagon, throwing punches with the Islanders or playing Jenga with the Rangers, Chris Weidman is a regular guy like everyone else.

Imagine Chris Weidman the Music Festival organizer or the expert on how to have an absolute food cheat day?!?

Recently, we had a chance to sit down with the former UFC Middleweight champ, and we learned some interesting things…

1 CAN YOU SMELL WHAT WEIDMAN?!? IS COOKING

If you put The Rock and John Cena together, what do you have?… Chris Weidman, the WWE superstar!

We’re pretty intrigued to know what Weidman’s catchphrase and signature move would be… 🤔

2 STARTING OFF A CHEAT DAY LIKE WHOA

Nothing beats a Long Island breakfast special. NOTHING!

And, if you’re Chris Weidman, your cheat day breakfast also has a solid (and we mean solid) list of sides, such as an egg everything bagel scooped out with lox and cream cheese, french toast and pancakes to pick on, and don’t forget the fruit!

3 HOW A LONG ISLANDER SUMS UP LONG ISLAND

We say: Describe Long Island in three words.
Weidman says: Bagels. Tough. Diners.

BUT… Let’s be realistic though, picking only three words to describe Long Island is a challenge for sure because there are just so many you could choose.

4 THE BATTLE OF MARTIAL ARTISTS

 

Chuck Norris is cool, but to Weidman he’s got nothing on Bruce Lee. 

For Weidman, Bruce Lee had the unique ability to take several styles of martial arts and mix it up to create his own unique style.

5 PUMP UP THE JAMS

A Weidman’s World Music Festival at The Garden sounds like a pretty cool idea if it ever happened. 

But who would he get as his headliners you ask? Billy Joel, Eminem and Toby Keith to be exact.

Now, that would be one heck of an eclectic festival!
