Same event. Weidman back to middleweight. Idk. Probably needs the cash injection but not sure it's a good idea.

Akhmedov has some power but not he's not very effective with it . He has only one KO/TKO in his UFC career, and that was in his debut (he has two on his record, but the other was a leg injury).

If Weidman is going to keep on fighting, it's finally some decent matchmaking by his camp.
