Chris Weidman’s return fight is still being worked on, according to his planned opponent.
The former UFC middleweight champion was supposed to fight Jack Hermansson at the fight night event in Oklahoma City on May 2nd. Due to the virus, the event and fight got nixed.
It turns out that the UFC is still working on the fight. Hermansson provided the latest update in a recent interview.
“Right now, I’m not sure they will be able to get me a new visa, they are working on it and as soon as things are sorted, and the UFC thinks they can make it happen, so I’m sure they will,” Hermansson told MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast.
“I’m not too sure what day I got the notice [regarding travel restrictions to the U.S.], but it was not unexpected. I trained hard for the fight, but I knew this could happen, but I’m still training and waiting for a new chance that it will show up.”
