UFC on FUEL 4 Bonuses: Chris Weidman's KO Cashes In

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Chris Weidman earned the biggest win of his career at UFC on FUEL 4, knocking out Mark Munoz in the main event of the show. As a result of his win, Weidman could possibly earn a middleweight title shot against champion Anderson Silva, but if not, he can soothe himself with a nice check. For his efforts, he earned the Knockout of the Night designation, an award that carries with it a $40,000 bonus.

Weidman was one of four winners from the event, which took place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.



"I want Anderson Silva," Weidman said after the fight. "Every time I've had a full training camp, I've gotten a finish. Every single time. Give me a full training camp, and I'd love a shot at the man, Anderson Silva. I really think I could do pretty good. So give me a shot, please."

We'll have to wait to see if his plea is answered, but he certainly carried the main event mantle in his first time in the role.

The Submission of the Night Award went to Alex Caceres, who scored a second-round triangle choke finish over Damacio Page after threatening him with it throughout the entire first round.

Meanwhile, light heavyweight sluggers James Te Huna and Joey Beltran earned the Fight of the Night award. The two went the three-round distance, with Te Huna out-landing Beltran en route to a unanimous decision.

Like Weidman, the other award winners all earned $40,000.
