Mark Muñoz was the last of the nine victims of Chris Weidman in MMA. On the other hand, he was part of training camp to Anderson Silva's first fight against Chael Sonnen Spider. With experience of knowing the two protagonists of UFC 162, Muñoz bet victory Anderson.
"I think Anderson will win. He'll have to drive forever, but he is so precise that you will be able to avoid falls. Chris will try to shorten the distance and Anderson will work the angles, like he always does. And if they do, it will be an easy fight. If Chris can take it to the grid and bring it down, then he'll have a chance, but if Anderson move the way I know he can, Chris will have a long night. "
Weidman and Muñoz faced UFC On FUEL TV 4 in July 2012, when the current middleweight challenger won by TKO in the second round. Both ended up hurting more and not fought since. At UFC 162, Muñoz Weidman and return to share the same card, with Mark facing Tim Boetsch.
