“For me, being a Long Islander, it’s bigger for me to be fighting at Nassau Coliseum than Madison Square Garden,” former middleweight champion Chris Weidman told SI.com.
“Fighting at Madison Square Garden was amazing as well, especially being a New Yorker and the first event ever. It’s such a historic building. But as far as what my true home arena is, it’s Nassau Coliseum,” Weidman said. “It means more to be able to put on a show here in Long Island than anywhere else."
