At Wednesday night's UFC on Fuel TV 4, middleweight contenders Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman will attempt to impress the UFC brass and earn a title shot against champion Anderson Silva, who defended his belt against rival Chael Sonnen at Saturday's UFC 148.
Munoz and Weidman are each riding impressive winning streaks, so a victory in a main event against a fellow 185-pound contender could be exactly what they need to separate themselves from the pack of middleweights looking to become the next top contender.
In addition to providing a main event with title fight implications, UFC on Fuel TV 4 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California will also feature Aaron Simpson's welterweight debut.
The former middleweight gatekeeper was originally scheduled to meet Jon Fitch at 170 pounds, but he will now try to ease his way into a new division against Kenny Robertson.
Furthermore, Joey Beltran will return to the Octagon as a light heavyweight for a bout against James Te-Huna. Beltran previously competed at heavyweight under the UFC banner before being briefly released from the promotion after a loss to Lavar Johnson.
Shortly after the event concludes, Munoz, Weidman and several more of the night's competitors will likely join UFC president Dana White for a post-fight press conference. A live streaming feed of the post-fight press conference will be available on the above video player.
