Mousasi had been campaigning for the fight and it seems he stirred up the ire of Weidman after accusing him of ducking his challenge.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
The 31-year-old “Dreamcatcher” avenged a loss to Uriah Hall in his last bout at UFC Fight Night 99, part of a four-fight win streak.
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old “All-American,” currently ranked No.4, has been finished in his last two fights and needs a win to stay in the title shot conversation. His home state of New York would be a great place to do it.
UFC 210 takes place April 8 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo.
Other announced matches include:
Stipe Miocic vs Fabricio Werdum
Gegard Mousasi (41-6-2) vs Chris Weidman (13-2-0)
