UFC on Fuel TV: Munoz v Weidman

“He had felt my power and knew I was way more powerful than him, and he realized he couldn’t hurt me with anything he was going to do. I was in there right away trying to finish him, I don’t think he’s used to that. I didn’t really care where the fight went. I went for a kneebar and knew there was a risk of the guy getting back to his feet if I couldn’t finish. I either wanted to submit him on the floor or knock him out. I threw my forehead on his fists a few times, to let him know I wasn’t scared – ‘Give me your best shot, I’ll eat it.” He was trying to get me to freeze up, make me feel like I didn’t belong in the cage with him.”

In an interview with the LA Times, newly crowned UFC middleweight champion, Chris Weidman discussed his shocking win over Anderson Silva at UFC 162 this past weekend.
