We'll have a story coming Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning on Chris Weidman, but in the meantime, here's part 2 of our video series on the newly signed UFC middleweight from Baldwin.

In this video, Weidman - along with his trainers Matt Serra and Ray Longo -- take about making the jump from regional promotions such as Ring of Combat to the big show that is the UFC.

Weidman makes his UFC debut Thursday night against veteran Alessio Sakara at UFC on Versus. Enjoy the show, plus the related stories, photos, poll and part 1 of the videos below.
