No.5 UFC middleweight contender Gegard Mousasi (41-6-2) will face  former middleweight champion Chris Weidman (13-2-0) at UFC 210 on April 8.

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.
