UFC On FUEL TV 4 Results: Mark Munoz Thoroughly Dominated, Knocked Out By Chris Weidman

UFC On FUEL TV 4: Munoz vs. Weidman actually turned out to be a more entertaining card fight-wise than UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen, even without the drama of a championship fight in the main event. The evening finished with a tilt between Mark Munoz, a California-based fighter who was trying to make his name for a title shot, and Chris Weidman, who was trying to remain undefeated and make a case for yet another step up in competition.

From the start of the fight, Weidman took Munoz's back and threatened a submission. When Munoz got back to his feet, Weidman landed a knee and got a headlock, controlling Munoz for the first two minutes before moving into a guillotine choke and almost submitting Munoz. Weidman landed some short elbows and then tried to go for an armbar, and then a kimura. He was, to say the least, very active in the submission game.

He went for a mounted guillotine, and then Munoz tried to get up and Weidman hooked up the headlock yet again. The first round came to an end a clear 10-9 for Weidman. Round two came along and Weidman scored another takedown, but Munoz had a great escape. They get back to standing, and Munoz throws a very sloppy punch and is caught with a brutal right elbow counter by Weidman, who fell down on top of Munoz and threw vicious ground and pound to score a knockout victory.

It was potentially a 10-8 round one and a vicious, cerebral knockout in round two. There is not a single better kind of performance you can have in the UFC. You want to be able to dominate a round and then finish impressively in the second. It should it's not a fluke. Weidman walks away with a 9-0 record.
