UFC on Fuel TV 4 just got a headliner, Mark Munoz (12-2) v Chris Weidman (8-0) will square off in a yet to be determined location. Munoz who was forced from the Fox 2 card, was supposed to fight Anderson Silva’s number one fan Chael Sonnen. Weidman was on the Fox 2 and beat Demian Maia to continue his undefeated streak and push his win total to 8. Weidman the Collegiate wrestler will take on Munoz another collegiate wrestler, but Munoz has almost as many KO/TKO’s as Weidman has wins with 7.

 

UFC 149 which will take place in Alberta, Canada at the Scotiabank Saddledome is getting two Heavyweight fighters. The two are looking to redeem themselves, Cheick Kongo (17-7-2) v Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (33-7-1-1) (Big Nog). Kongo is coming off a loss to Mark Hunt at UFC 144 and looking to gain some respect in the division. Nogueira a former Heavyweight champion (Interim) is also looking to gain respect as well after receiving 2 things from Frank Mir, a second loss to him as well as breaking an arm, which was one of the worst ever inside the octagon.

 

Hatsu Hioki is considered the toughest competition for Jose Aldo, and will get at least one more fight before that match up is made. UFC on FX 4 got one more fight Ricardo Lamas (11-2) v Hatsu Hioki (26-4-2), Hioki has won 3 championships with TKO, Shooto, and Sengoku. Hioki is the owner of the hardest chin on the planet and in 32 fights has never been KO’d and his 4 losses have come by way of 3 split decision’s and 1 unanimous decision. Lamas is a 6-2 in Zuffa owned companies and has faced stiff competition but no doubt this will be his tallest test to date.
