Former UFC Middleweight champ Chris Weidmann says that he’s “guaranteed” a title shot when he beats Yoel Romero on Saturday at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden.

Weidmann, who was speaking to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani, is taking on the Cuban on the event’s undercard, and says that a victory over the Olympic silver medalist will open up a title shot for him against current champ Michael Bisping.

When questioned whether that guarantee had come from the top UFC brass, “The All-American” reiterated his stance before calling Bisping out for attempting to schedule fights with “Welterweights and some more people that are retired”, referring to Nick Diaz and George St-Pierre, before calling for a potential title fight to be brought back to New York, the fighter’s home state.
