Chris Weidman suffered a devastating defeat against Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza this past weekend at UFC 230. The to-and-fro fight saw Souza come out on top in the third round via Knockout. Weidman is now 14-4 in his career and was coming off a one-year layoff when he fought Souza. Prior to this, he had defeated Kelvin Gastelum at UFC on Fox 25 via an arm-triangle choke submission.

However, prior to the Gastelum win, he was on a three-fight losing streak. He recently appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show and he teared up during the interview when he recounted how his daughter learned about his loss and he got emotional.

I came into the room right after the fight, I came into the Hotel and my kids were sleeping and I guess someone had gotten into the room where my kids were and my daughter had overheard them talking about the fight that I had lost.

Then she woke up and asking that she wants to see me…[Weidman gets emotional] [Damn it Ariel, Have I ever cried in your show before]…..It was terrible, I love my kids, I love my daughter.

Basically she was blaming herself because she fell asleep as she was saying the prayer for me to win and then she woke up and overheard them saying that I lost then she kept praying thinking it was a bad dream….a bad dream, she just kept praying until I reached there and had to tell her it was not your fault, it was part of God’s plan.

Weidman was really emotional during this part of the interview.
