On Saturday, Chris Weidman's first title fight against an opponent other than Anderson Silva let fans down.
Early on, Weidman was beating Lyoto Machida by moving forward patiently and mixing in takedowns. After seemingly dropping the first three rounds on the scorecards, Machida came out more aggressive in the fourth stanza and began turning things around.
Despite Machida's late push, Weidman was able to weather the storm. A takedown in the fifth round helped Weidman seal the win and defend his middleweight title for the second time in a row.
With another UFC fight card in the books, here are the bouts that should be next for Weidman, Machida and the rest of the UFC 175 competitors.
