After great repercussion due to the controversial result of the duel against Bruno Blindado at UFC Atlantic City, Chris Weidman opened the doors to hold a second fight in the organization. Despite both having received medical suspension for an indefinite period, the North American declared that if it is Ultimate's desire to hold the rematch, he will be in agreement.

“If the UFC wants a rematch of this fight, of course. But I would be happy to move on. It's nothing to do with fear (…) whatever, if they want a rematch that's fine, I'm open to that. My heart goes out to Bruno, I know he's frustrated, it's shit, but... He fought me for 13 minutes and was losing the fight. So I do not know. If they want to schedule a rematch, of course,” said Weidman in an interview with 'The MMA Hour'.

Protagonist of an illegal blow against the Brazilian, Weidman exempts himself from blame and the outcome of the fight. In the North American's view, Blindado should not have gone to the ground after receiving a fourth illegal fingerprint in his eyes. In an irreducible stance, 'All American' as he is known, stated that no fighter should go to the ground for these reasons and argued that episodes like these are 'normal' in the sport.
