Chris Weidman bonus sound bytes

These are some of the answers UFC middleweight Chris Weidman from Baldwin gave during our interview that didn't make it into the final edit of his pre-fight video. Videojournalists: Mark LaMonica and Mario Gonzalez (July 10, 2012)

We already gave you two polished videos involving Chris Weidman here and here, but here's a little bonus for the UFC on Fuel 4 headliner this Wednesday.

But since Newsday sat down with the Baldwin-raised Weidman for about 30 minutes last month at Ray Longo MMA in Garden City, we decided not to waste all that extra footage.

So give a listen to some of the answers that didn't make it into the previous videos leading into his middleweight fight against Mark Munoz. Topics include his dramatic weight cut in the Demian Maia fight last January, his newborn son and interacting with war veterans.
