NFL stars take on UFC champ Chris Weidman

Elias Cepeda

NFL players Darren Woodson and Damien Woody ran into UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman recently in the ESPN green room and decided to test out the fighter’s toughness. Cameras were there to catch the violent incident.

After being unfazed by two bottles broken on his head from behind while he read Cat Fancy magazine, Weidman warned Woody and Woodson, “Yo, if I get hit one more time, I’m going to choke you out.”

With that, Woodson and Woody both thought better of their plans, dropped the remaining bottle and scurried away. It was all in scripted good fun, of course.

This Saturday’s UFC 168 is headlined by two title bouts – Weidman rematching Anderson Silva and Ronda Rousey defending her belt in a rematch against her BFF Miesha Tate.
