MANILA, Philippines – Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Muñoz suffered a huge setback in his quest for a UFC championship.

Muñoz was dominated and knocked out by fellow middleweight contender Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV 4.

Weidman – who came into the bout unbeaten in eight fights – quickly established control in the opening round.

The end came when Weidman caught Muñoz with a wicked right elbow that dropped the Filipino fighter to the mat.

Weidman finished the job with a barrage of punches that forced the referee to step in and stop the fight. -- Dateline Philippines, ANC, July 12, 2012.
