His moniker is All American because Chris Weidman represents America. He shot to fame when he defeated Anderson Silva, the all time great in UFC mixed martial arts. It was a sorry loss for Silva because he had been too cocky and was accidentally hit and eventually knocked out. But in their return match, Silva suffered a broken leg that ended the fight again. That means Weidman had beaten Silva twice and that’s a feat that was unimaginable before Weidman came into the picture. Weidman’s latest fight was a knockout win over an upcoming middleweight Kelvin Gastelum.
