UFC On FUEL TV 4: Munoz vs. Weidman kicked off the preliminary card in a big way, as Raphael Assunção demolished Issei Tamura in the second round of their fight. Assuncao threw a head kick that didn't quite land and Tamura tried to capitalize on the miss, cutting off the cage and going for a wide hook, but Assunção countered with a fantastic left hand that made Temura drop to the ground. A flurry of punches later and the fight was stopped.
This writer does not recommend you ever watch the Marcelo Guimaraes vs. Dan Stittgen fight, unless you like no punches to land and a man moaning into a microphone. Seriously. That happened.
Andrew Craig and Rafael Natal put on a very uninspiring first round of action, with Natal doing absolutely nothing, but taunting and yelling as though he were dominating the fight. In the second round, he backed some of that up by landing on Craig and staggering him. He followed Craig to the ground and tried to get the finish, but in the end, Craig ended up on top and they were stood up. Craig was clearly flustered until he, you know, threw a right head kick that landed perfectly and knocked Natal right out.
San Jose's own Chris Cariaso had a very exciting win over Josh Ferguson, and you can read our full recap for that thread here. The night's preliminary card wrapped up with a pretty good fight between Alex Caceres and Damacio Page. Caceres spent most of the first round on the bottom being controlled, but Caceres had an excellent triangle attempt near the end of the round, but wasn't able to secure it fully. In round tow, he ended up on his back again, and as Page went back to throw a punch, Caceres caught him in another triangle and this one he locked in for the submission victory.
