Recently ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported that a bout between the two was in the works. Since then, Brett Okamoto’s been told by a source verbal agreements are in place for the October 18th fight. The light-heavyweight scrap will reportedly headline the Boston card.

Well, Reyes tweeted out the comment below, and that prompted a response from the former middleweight champ himself.

Weidman has said that he wants a top contender in his light-heavyweight debut, and the UFC has clearly obliged. This is a big opportunity for both men. If Weidman wins, he’ll move into the title shot mix at 205 right away. If Reyes wins, however, his case for a title shot will be considerably stronger.

Reyes (11-0) is coming off a split decision win over Volkan Oezdemir (which Weidman referred to), and the former 185 champ (14-4) was taken out by “Jacare” Souza in his last outing.
