Last night at UFC 162 Chris Weidman shocked the world, both in terms of result and execution. A worthy challenger to the throne long-held by Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman showed no fear in his bout against the greatest fighter of all time, hitting an early takedown and finding no purchase with several submission holds.
It was a well-hyped fight, but one that played out perhaps even more one-sided than imagined. The always vocal Chael Sonnen had talked his way into a title shot at 205 lbs, yet champion Jon "Bones" Jones wasn't impressed by the verbal acrobatics, and certainly wasn't impressed by Sonnen's skills. Landing shots in the clinch and easily winning the wrestling battle, Jones broke a toe, but absolutely dispatched his opponent with little danger and maximum damage.
The champ is no stranger to tough fights, and Benson Henderson was more than ready for his test last Saturday, taking on Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez. The first round saw Melendez get into Henderson's face and pressure the champ with overhand rights and striking in the pocket, taking the round on every score card and potentially setting the pace for the night.
