Two champions collided in Miami this week during the UFC 168 world tour: NBA world champ and Heat power forward Udonis Haslem got some sparring in with UFC middleweight king Chris Weidman during open workouts.
Despite the "very pro-Anderson Silva crowd," as UFC President Dana White put it, Weidman had the 6' 8", 235-pound Haslem in his corner.
