The “UFC on Fuel TV 4” fight card wasn’t exactly a star-studded event, but the last two fights made up for it. Here are the results of the UFC on Fuel TV 4 fight card held on July 11, at the H.P. Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
Chris Weidman defeats Mark Muñoz
Weidman established himself as a legitimate title contender at UFC on Fuel TV 4, manhandling Muñoz throughout their encounter. He kept Muñoz grounded for the majority of the first round, and he finished off “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” with a beautifully placed elbow in the second round, following up with a barrage of punches. After the fight, Weidman asked for a shot against current middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Given how impressive he looked against Muñoz, it certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea.
James Te Huna defeats Joey Beltran

He hurt Beltran during the final moments of the first round, but “The Mexicutioner” ended up getting saved by the bell.

However, Beltran rocked him during the final seconds of the round, and he ended up getting saved by the bell this time around. Beltran turned the tables in the final round, but it was enough to convince the judges, who all scored the fight in favor of Te Huna.
