UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will be responding to fans on twitter ahead of his middleweight showdown with Lyoto Machida for his second title defense. “All American” is known for being the man to dethrone the long time reigning champ Anderson Silva, who just so happens to be a close friend and training partner of his upcoming opponent.

UFC 175: Weidman vs Machida will go down on July 5 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a second championship battle between female mixed martial arts (MMA) star Ronda Rousey and No. 1 contender Alexis Davis.

You can join the live chat at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. EST using the hashtag #AskWeidman to see what he has to say about his showdown with The Dragon, ask him what his favourite action film is, how he feels going into this fight. Just don’t ask him if Anderson Silva playing around led to the knockout because dude has answered that one a million times now and he probably won’t even answer you.
