His coach, Ray Longo, can’t understand it with his charm and boyish good looks.
"If there's a cover of Sports Illustrated or Wheaties, it's him," Longo told Phoenix Carnavale last week at UFC 183. "He looks the part to me. (He is a) great guy, terrific guy."
Weidman continues to prove that he is far ahead of the remainder of the middleweight division.
According to Longo, it is only a matter of time before he wins over the media.
"I think, hopefully in the future, we'll correct all of that."
"Chris Weidman is going to go down as one of the greatest fighters of all time. And, if I have anything to do with it, hopefully undefeated,"he added.
