Last night, headliner Mark Munoz saw his hopes of a shot at UFC champion Anderson Silva cut at the knees by white-hot prospect Chris Weidman. The NCAA champion was overwhelmed by Weidman, and finished in the second round after a gorgeous counter-elbow sent him to the canvas where he would eat approximately 16 unanswered shots to the head.
Munoz has never been manhandled like that, and he has cage time with longtime veterans Yushin Okami, Chris Leben and Demian Maia. In fact, not even wrestler Aaron Simpson had the wrestling necessary to control The Filipino Wrecking Machine the way that Weidman did last night.
While Munoz found himself on the wrong side of a physical rinsing, it's hardly the last that we will see of him. With impressive wrestling and even better ground and pound, the Kings MMA fighter will continue to be a handful for most opponents.
Here is a look at four fights that Munoz should consider to get him back on track.
