SAN JOSE, Cal. – Still recovering from Saturday’s UFC 148, MMAValor.com was inside the HP Pavilion for today’s UFC on FUEL TV 4 weigh-ins. A few of the fighters would need to step onto the scale behind a towel but all 22 fighters on the UFC on FUEL TV 4 fight card made weight.
The three fighters that needed to remove their trunks to make-weight were, Rafael Natal, Alex Caceres and Francis Carmont.
UFC on FUEL TV 4 is headlined by middleweights Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman in a five-round non-title bout. Each is looking to impress the UFC brass in hopes of being the next in line to face current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The champ defeated Chael Sonnen over the weekend at UFC 148.
The UFC on FUEL TV 4 co-main event features the only light heavyweight bout as James Te Huna welcomes Joey Beltran back into the UFC. After his release, Beltran dropped down from heavyweight and fought one time outside the UFC. He will be making his UFC debut at light heavyweight.
Another fighter at a new weight class is UFC veteran Aaron Simpson who will be making his welterweight debut against Kenny Robertson on the night’s main card. Simpson had made nine pervious UFC bouts at middleweight, with a record of 6-3. He was originally schedule to face Jon Fitch but an injury forced the welterweight contender off the card. Robertson will be making his UFC debut.
UFC on Fuel TV 4 will stream live on Facebook starting at 2:30pm PT / 5:30pm ET before the main card airs on Fuel TV starting at 5pm PT / 8pm ET.
