Middleweight champion Chris Weidman will have a new title to his walk in credits at UFC 187, in two weeks.

Weidman is now a Jiu-Jitsu black belt.

He was promoted to the ranking by Matt Serra and Renzo Gracie after a training session this Wednesday.

“It was a great surprise to receive the black belt from this two. I’m trully blessed to have Matt and Renzo close to me,” said an emotional Weidman.

Weidman, who is 12-0 in his MMA career, is getting ready to face Vitor Belfort, a Carlson Gracie black belt, in a much anticipated title match many times postponed.
