Headlining UFC's Long Island card 'a dream come true' for Weidman

By Kieran Darcy, ESPN Staff Writer
"Nassau Coliseum, there's nothing more special for a local kid," Weidman said. "It's definitely a dream come true.

"I grew up going to [New York] Islanders games there when I was young, and waiting outside for the players to come out and getting their autographs and everything. It's pretty cool and surreal to realize I'm going to be fighting there and people are going to be coming to watch me."
