Chris Weidman told Fightin' Words about 10 days ago that his Ring of Combat middleweight title was sitting right on top of his couch.

Well, this past weekend, the belt made the trip with Weidman from Baldwin to Atlantic City for his first title defense. The belt, and Weidman, are now back home after his successful defense against Valdir Arraujo at Ring of Combat 33.

Weidman won by unanimous decision against his toughest opponent to date. Below are rounds two and three for your viewing pleasure.
