Right. But in a pandemic-stricken world, the crazy stuff has shown no signs of letting up. Now Weaver finds himself set to fight without fans at the UFC Apex, the very room where he won that contract less than ten months ago.
“It’s a very good venue, it’s home to me. I’m 1-0 there, I’m looking to make it 2-0 Saturday. I already got a good feeling. Everything is working out perfect.”
Everything except for the fact he’s drawn Roberts, another game DWCS contract winner who will be equally at home in the quiet confines of the smaller 25-foot Octagon. Weaver seems unfazed by any of this and speaks as if the fight has already occurred.
“This is my redemption fight. I didn’t get to show much [last time]. This time I’m coming out with a little anger. I’ve got to bring that dog to this fight and show the world what I’m made of. Everybody might think I’m a fluke, so I’ve got to show them I’m not.”
“I love it,” he says of the matchup. “Pressure busts pipes, bro. I don’t see that he likes pressure too much. So I’m going to see if he’s got that dog in him, too. I’m from the dirt. Streets and dirt? You tell me which one is harder.”
