Singular Focus: Getting Stronger (Ep. 1)

This is Singular Focus, a four-part video series chronicling Chris Weidman’s training as he prepares to defend his UFC middleweight title against Vitor Belfort on Saturday, May 23. In this first installment, Chris shows us his physical preparation and conditioning.


Training is my life. It’s all I’ve known since I was in second grade, when I started wrestling. As I prepare to defend my UFC middleweight title against Vitor Belfort, I’m training two or three times a day.

I wanna get myself in such good shape that no matter how much I push myself in a fight, I know that the other guy is gonna be a little bit more tired. I’m gonna find that breaking point, and that guy’s gonna break before I break. If you just give that little extra second of energy, that’s the extra second that might break him. And then it’s over. You just do whatever you want to him.

My training varies so much. There’s no such thing as a typical day.
