Weidman is now 1-4 from his last 5, and all of those losses have been KO/TKO's. What's next?

I've been giving this some thought, and I think if the opportunity knocks, he should go to Bellator. It's the right place for him at this stage of his career, especially given that he's not getting the belt back. There's some good fights for him over there, especially a mousasi rematch, and a rory mac fight. I feel like if he stays in the UFC he's going to get fed to Adesanya, Costa etc. Both would KO him at this point I believe.

What do you think?

His chin is toast. Try Bellator or maybe to go up to 205..maybe retire. He’s taken some serious damage in his short career.

I don't disagree that he's taken a lot of damage. And he, like every fighter, should consider the long term effects that this will have on him and when he should end his career.

That said, this particular finish against Jacare was one of those top/side of the head blows.  Just like JDS vs Velasquez 1 I think, and Serra vs GSP 1.  Point being, I don't think this finish speaks to where his chin is.

In every one of those fights that chris lost, he was winning at some point. Luke was fading and chris's body kicks were adding up until his spin kick. I had the romero fight 1-1 on the scorecard and chris was holding his own in all areas. He won the 1st against gegard and was doing well. And i had him up 2-0 in this last loss. Hes still competitive with the elite and if anything it shows how narrow the margin for error is at this level of fighting.

I don't think his chin is shot. He just took some massive ones from Jacare and Yoel that would have put anyone down. Then the Gegard fight you can't look into much. He basically gave that fight away fishing for a DQ. 

I don't think he really needs to go to Bellator or move weight classes either. He's been very competitive despite the losses.

I aint heard no bell 
Get up Chris ! get up ya bum!
IAQUINTAAAAAAAAAA Your my my robin and Matt is our Bat car we now shall go to our bat lair for New York guys only ! who drink beer with their Lasagne and many side dishes ( pasta ragu, paninis and the likes , crispy fries) - only! 

no seriously tho i will always be fond of everybody hates Chris Weidman and his Dad because he won me too spicy hot bets in his fights against The Chosen Spider,
but if there was ever an MMA combatant i would like to see call it a career it would be Chris. to me , ever since he lost that fight to sexy Laguna beach model , the ground and pound one, he has just seems off to me... discombobulated, hurt........(maybe im wrong i heard settling down/becoming a Dad can slow one down..) but we know how real brain trauma is in this sport and mileage is very real and detremental to health and wellness. he has been up the block and back, won some epic fights and im just not sure if everybody hates Chris Weidman and his Dad is willing to chow down on the copius amounts of Psilocybin and tumeric necessary to replenish and potentially regenerate all those hurt and lost brain cells ( get ready for the trip)

although the movement of sprinting (max acceleration) on land (foot), water (swim) or machine (bike, cardio machine) is also proven to help boost brain cell rejuvination. but its easy for me to say here i guess...... i dunno throw a dog  a bone Dana! go on! throw it!...... .......... ......... ......... just throw the gosh darn bone ! and what not.... Feed Chris Theodoodoo!

Weidman is still a trop 10 at MW or at least a top 15.

I think you’re all outta your mind if you don’t think the past fights have taken a toll on the longevity of his career and chin. He may be able to recover but 4 KO losses in 5 fights and was rocked in the odd one out isn’t the best sign. Yes I do agree, some of those shots do put the large majority of fighters out, however. What’s he 34-35 yrs old...idk. Time to think about that sorta thing, IMO.

Well, yeah. This what I mean. Anyway you slice it, 4 KO/TKO's from 5 fights is what it is. Now, you can make exceptions and excuses, but the reality is he's taken some hellacious damage, and chins don't improve with age and knockouts. And Jacare and Romero aren't going anywhere (probably) which is to say nothing of the monsters on the rise like Adesanya and Costa. Even if he did somehow get to the belt, Whittaker would straight up murder him.

I just don't see anything good for him at MW in the UFC.
