Huge congratulations to Costas Philippou and Chris Weidman on their victories this past week. Both of these guys have been shaking up their respective weight classes in the UFC.
Costas won a three round decision over Riki Fukuda. Costas' boxing skills have always been top notch, but his wresting and BJJ skills keep getting better.
Chris Weidman has also shown much improvement with his striking under the tutelage of Ray Longo and did he ever show that against Mark Munoz tonight. It was a brilliant elbow after slipping a punch from Munoz that led to the ref's rather late stoppage. It was clear that Munoz was out way before the several strikes that eventually ended the match.
Congratulations to both fighters!
