The already UFC-rich roster of pros offering instruction at Saturday’s 4-hour-long super seminar (more information here) has received another boost as UFC Middleweight Chris Weidman has kindly volunteered his time to come out and assist in instructing the seminar attendees. Weidman is widely considered among the brightest young fighters in MMA, and recently improved his record to 7-0 with a first round Brabo choke victory over Tom Lawlor. The win was Weidman’s third under the UFC banner, following a submission-of-the-night guillotine choke against Jesse Bongfeldt, and a debut victory by unanimous decision in which Weidman filled in as a late replacement and halted the three-fight winning streak of Alessio Sakara.
In addition to attending the seminar and sharing tips and tricks from his impressive submission grappling arsenal, Weidman will be donating signed items to the upcoming fundraising auction. The auction will feature items from many UFC fighters as well as professional athletes from other sports, including the Philadelphia Phillies’ Shane Victorino. Follow the DJM Foundation blog and twitter for the latest developments as the auction nears.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Weidman for his contributions.
