(Preview) UFC Boston on ESPN 6: Reyes vs. Weidman

UFC president Dana White once again stacks a Boston fight night card filled with talent when the organization returns to “Bean Town” this Friday.  Rising prospects, a former middleweight champion, and a bitter rivalry fill the card to make for an exciting night of fights.

Chris Weidman is back after a year out and moves up to light heavyweight to get out of his rut. Welcoming him to the division is Dominick Reyes who is on fire and yet to taste defeat.

Reyes was 6-0-0 before entering the UFC still with everything to prove but he has passed every test so far with increasing difficulty. He knocked out Joachim Christensen on his debut and then went on to submit Jeremy Kimball before finishing Jared Cannonier with strikes. His last two fights have gone to decisions, however these were against top contenders Ovince Saint Preux and Volkan Oezdemir.

The former middleweight champion is suffering completely contrasting form, losing four of his last five. He got finished by Luke Rockhold to lose his belt and unbeaten record before getting kneed into a different realm by Yoel Romero and stopped by Gegard Mousasi. He bounced back with a dominant submission win but this was against Kelvin Gastelum who is half his size. Failing to gain momentum, Weidman then got starched by Jacare Souza and has since been on the sidelines with injuries.
