Mark Munoz
My favorite fighter. Always has been.
This Mark trained Anderson in wrestling at one point and is probably part of the reason he stuffed Sonnen's takedown attempts in the second rd. so well. He not only worked the ground game but striking with Andy. Hell Anderson considers them friends and doesn't understand why Mark wants to fight him.

Weidman is extremely underrated but I think too green for a shot at the title-ala Nate Quarry. He is working with Serra/Longo so give him a couple of years and he will a top 5 MW. Mark is ahead of him in to many facets of the game and should beat him tonight.
