UFC On Fuel TV Munoz Vs. Weidman Results: Francis Carmont, T.J. Dillashaw Score Big Wins On Main Card

After a very strong preliminary card for UFC On Fuel TV 4: Munoz vs. Weidman in which San Jose native Chris Cariaso bested Josh Ferguson via unanimous decision, the night's main card got off to a bang with a tilt between Anthony Njokuani and Rafael dos Anjos. It was an exciting fight from the get-go, with dos Anjos scoring an excellent knockdown early on, but was unable to get the finish. After that, he basically neutralized Njokuani all fight with very solid takedowns and great grappling to snag the unanimous decision.

Next, another California fighter took the octagon in T.J. Dillashaw. He was fighting Vaughan Lee, and looked a little out of his league through the first minute or so as Lee was landing all manner of strikes, but Dillashaw flipped Lee to the ground at one point and took his back, eventually riding his back standing. Dillashaw locked up the rear naked choke while riding Lee's back and the referee missed the tap initially, letting it run a little too long, but Dillashaw got the win either way.

That was followed by a fight between Karlos Vemola and Francis Carmont, two huge middleweights. Vemola had the edge in round one with a couple guillotine attempts, and was securing a takedown in the second when Carmont spun it into a choke for an amazing submission victory and reverse to get the win.

The undercard wrapped up with a run-of-the-mill Aaron Simpson fight in which he won a unanimous decision and a light heavyweight slugfest that saw James Te Huna and Joey Beltran play rock 'em sock 'em robots. The fight set a record for number of significant strikes landed in a light heavyweight fight.

Rafael dos Anjos def. Anthony Njokuani via unanimous decision
T.J. Dillashaw def. Vaughan Lee via submission at 2:33 of round one
Francis Carmont def. Karlos Vemola via submission at 1:39 of round two
