If you limit your MMA diet to the UFC, or are fairly new to the game, then you may be unaware of Daniel Weichel.

The German fighter has long been considered one of the best 145’ers outside of the UFC, and in recent years, the 40 plus fight vet has established himself as a contender in Bellator. In fact, the only man to defeat Weichel since 2012, is now former champ, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.

Weichel is booked to fight Brian Moore this Friday at Bellator 169.In advance of the bout, Bellator posted a “Foundations” vid about the well rounded vet, featuring analyst Jimmy Smith.
