Video: UFC contender Chris Weidman tours damaged home and neighborhood in wake of Hurricane Sandy

New, comments

Get a firsthand look at the devastation from Hurricane Sandy as top UFC middleweight Chris Weidman takes you on a video tour of his ravaged home and neighborhood in Baldwin, New York.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Chris Weidman was just one of millions along the Eastern seaboard affected by Hurricane Sandy, which crashed into the Jersey Shore -- and beyond -- in the wee hours of Oct. 30, 2012.

This is his story.

"No one's ever really gone through this around here before, so no one can really tell what's gonna happen. We have kids, so we have to worry about the mold, make sure there's no mold coming up. I'm gonna have to [stay] with my parents. It's still new, I'm still numb to the situation. Me and my wife haven't gotten the chance to sit down and figure out what we're gonna do."

MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani traveled to Baldwin, NY, to tour the "All American" home and see what the top 185-pound prospect is faced with, just over a month ahead of his UFC 155 bout against Tim Boetsch, which goes down on Dec. 29, 2012 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
