Weidman eyes shot at Silva after TKO of Munoz
Chris Weidman has called out middleweight champion Anderson Silva following his knockout win over Mark Munoz at UFC on Fuel 4.
Weidman won courtesy of a TKO at 1:37 in the second round after he landed a heavy elbow to counter a Munoz right hook.
After dominating the majority of the fight, Weidman claimed victory in his fifth consecutive UFC bout, opening a cut above Munoz's right eye in the process. Weidman edged the first round 10-8, scoring several near-submisions.
"I've just been playing around with some elbows," Weidman said. "I've got the long reach for it. Thank God it landed. (Now) I want Anderson Silva. Give me a shot please."
England's Vaughan Lee was defeated by TJ Dillashaw earlier in the evening. Dillashaw picked up the victory via a rear-naked choke at 2:33 of the first round.
