UFC 168 fight card: Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva

On Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, UFC star Chris Weidman gave a pep talk at his alma mater to the Baldwin football team. He talked to the athletes about the virtues of working hard and not giving up.

Chris Weidman has his name at the front of the event and his photo on top of the fight poster for UFC 168. That's because the Long Islander is the champion, set to defend his middleweight title Dec. 28 in Las vegas against the man he won it from last July.
