Johnny Walker calls out Chris Weidman for early 2020 showdown

Johnny Walker has called out a former UFC champion in hopes to climb back up the 205-pound ladder.

After hearing that ex-UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman is targeting a quick turnaround in the first quarter of 2020, Walker issued a challenge, stating that he, too, is looking to return around the same date.

And it didn’t take long for Weidman to respond, though he didn’t exactly accept or turn down the offer.

After a 3-0 start to his UFC tenure, running right through his opponents, Walker (17-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) took on light heavyweight contender Corey Anderson earlier this month at UFC 244 in hopes of potentially securing a title shot. But things didn’t go his way, and Walker suffered a first-round stoppage loss, putting a halt to his run.

Meanwhile, Weidman (14-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) got a sour welcome to the light heavyweight division, when he was stopped by Dominick Reyes in the first round of their October clash. Weidman has now lost five of his last six outings, with all five losses coming by the way of stoppage, but he insists that he still has a lot of fight left in him.
