This one goes for all those bullied in their youth, stay strong and heed the wise words of Chris Weidman. Ossu.
“I grew up in a decently tough neighborhood,” says Weidman as transcribed by MMAFighting. “I grew up getting bullied and fighting a lot. My brother was probably one of the toughest kids from my neighborhood and he didn’t make it easy on me. He made sure I was getting beat up as much as possible growing up. If he wasn’t beating me up, he was making his friends beat me up. He threw a 10 pound weight on my head because I wouldn’t get him a cookie. Split my forehead open pretty good.”
“I think any type of setback you have, any tough time you’ve got, getting through it is what makes you who you are.
