Weidman injured, out of UFC 155
Weidman's teammate Constantinos Philippou has stepped in as a late replacement.
Newsday.com reported the news today, and UFC officials have since announced the change.
The injury is just the latest unfortunate event in what has been a tragic month for Weidman. Early this month, his Long Island home took quite a lot of damage during Hurricane Sandy.
He enters his UFC 155 match up against Boetsch on a four-fight winning streak. Boetsch has won four straight as well.
UFC 155 takes place on December 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card features a heavyweight title fight between champion Junior dos Santos and top contender Cain Velasquez.
