Long Island's Chris Weidman, one of the top UFC middleweight fighters, is out of UFC 155 next month with an undisclosed injury, Newsday has learned.

He was scheduled to fight Tim Boetsch on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas.

"It's awful," trainer Ray Longo said.

Instead, Boetsch will fight Costa Philippou, a teammate of Weidman's with Longo and Matt Serra. Philippou was supposed to fight this past Saturday against Nick Ring at UFC 154 in Montreal, but the bout was canceled that morning when Ring fell ill.

"Everything happens for a reason," Longo said. "I guess this is the reason."

Weidman (9-0, 5-0 UFC) had emerged as a top contender for Anderson Silva's title with wins over Demian Maia and Mark Munoz.

Philippou (10-2, 4-1) has quietly won four straight in the UFC with his precision striking and improving takedown defense.

Personally and i might get heat for it but i don't think it is an injury. If you listen to his interview with Ariel he said with the whole hurricane Sandy damage that if it doesn't get better fast he might have to pull out because he doesn't want to leave his family behind while he goes out for training camp....but who knows best of luck to Chris though.....and i think they should put Bisping in there instead of Costa but oh well

disagree w last statement. i think bisping vs belfort is an incredible matchup--tough to pick, and im excited for it. bisping vs boetsch, not so much to me. I just personally don't see boetsch being as good as those guys at the top.

He got gifted a decision in horrible fight against Lombard, where both guys looked like shit. And he got a late knockout against okami after being picked apart for 2+ rounds. Would love to see costa beat him and put him back where he belongs in the division.

apologies if I came off a little harsh here....

UFC setting up the plan:

1. Announced Belfort vs. Bisping in Brazil

2. Belfort gets "injured" after tickets go on sale

3. Bisping vs. Weidman is the new main event

Looks like it's a shoulder injury. He'll need surgery and will be out 3-6 months. Phone Post

Fuck!

It could be a blessing in a big fucking disguise, though. Philippou vs. Boetsch is a great match for the fans. Weidman might face a bigger name in Bisping vs. Belfort winner. Anderson gets either a superfight or the time off that he wants.

This would actually make sense though, Bisping and Weidman should have been booked before but they both came off fights at different times.
