At UFC 148, middleweight legend Anderson Silva defended his title for a second time against Chael Sonnen. It was one of the most amazing spectacles in UFC history.
From the prefight trash talk, to the action-packed weigh-in, to the spectacular knee that was the beginning of the end for Chael, it was a night to remember.
With Chael out of the picture, the UFC desperately needed a new contender to Silva's crown. Tonight, they found one in Chris Weidman.
The prospect squared off with Mark Munoz in San Jose, a bout between two proud athletes with much more than pride on the line—a title shot was also up for grabs for whoever could take their game to the next level.
With his TKO win, Weidman snatched it.
As great as he was, Weidman wasn't the only fighter on the card. There were other winners, and some checked the "loss" column.
