Chris Weidman's KO of Mark Munoz last night in San Jose was originally announced as a TKO. When Munoz missed with a right that had bad intentions he was hit by a lethal counter right elbow to the face he appeared to be out cold. After face planting from Weidman's elbow, Munoz was hit by not one, not two, not three, but seventeen unnecessary right hands to the face. So it was basically a KO followed by some punches that woke him up eventually making it a TKO then maybe one or two more of each for good measure. Chris Weidman is a monster and his finish of Mark Munoz last night was the nastiest one of the year, even before the seventeen blows to the head.
