UFC on Fuel TV 4 Weigh-in Results for Mark Muñoz vs Chris Weidman Fight Card
The UFC does not rest for very long. Just days after the wildly successful UFC 148 card took place in Las Vegas, the promotion will travel a few hundred miles west to present UFC on Fuel TV 4 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
The July 11 fight card will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Mark Muñoz and Chris Weidman. Muñoz (12-2) is on a four fight-winning streak, with his last victory coming at UFC 138 when he defeated Chris Leben via TKO. Weidman (8-0) has never tasted defeat in his professional career. He last competed on the January UFC on FOX card, defeating Demean Maia via unanimous decision after taking the fight on less than two weeks notice.
There will be a great deal of interest in this bout as both Muñoz and Weidman have said that with a win, they will look to put their names next on the list for a shot at Anderson Silva and his UFC crown.
In the evening’s co-main event, Joey Beltran (14-7) will return to the UFC after a brief foray away from the promotion. When he does step into the Octagon on Wednesday, Beltran will be competing at the light heavyweight limit for this first time with the promotion. His opponent will be the 14-5 James Te Huna.
