The Fight Nerd spoke with heavyweight reserve Gian Villante and up-and-comer Chris Weidman on Wednesday’s Strikeforce press conference in New York City with all of the competitor’s on this Saturday’s event. Villante is set to fight Chad Griggs in a reserve bout, while Weidman was offered a fight on the show but injured his ribs helping Villante train. Villante talks about his fight with the man who beat Bobby Lashley before ditching me when I started to interview Weidman. The All-American wrestler from Hofstra University has also been in talks with Bellator and it sounds like he made it onto the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, before they excluded his weight class at the last minute. He was also the dude we did that documentary about. The Fight Nerd knows talent when he sees it!
Check out this short interview that won’t give you much insight into the fight world, but is just fun to watch!
