Despite crappy first date, UFC champ Chris Weidman still got the girl

Saskatoon StarPhoenix

Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to pay-per-view on Saturday with UFC 194, where in the co-main event, reigning middleweight champion Chris Weidman takes on No. 1 contender Luke Rockhold. Taking a break from his fight-week preparations, Weidman went 1-on-1 with Postmedia News mixed-martial-arts reporter Dave Deibert, discussing Christmas meals, karaoke skills, the worst first date ever and more …

POSTMEDIA: As a kid, what’s the best Christmas gift that you ever got?

WEIDMAN: I got this red bike, my parents got me. I was so proud of it. Then two days later it got stolen out of my garage. That was the best gift that they ever got me at Christmas. I was so pumped about it … then it was gone.

POSTMEDIA: What is your all-time favourite Christmas movie?

WEIDMAN: A Christmas Story.

POSTMEDIA: You’re an east coast kid. Snow or no snow at Christmas?

WEIDMAN: Of course, snow. You need it.
