UFC 175 Mandalay Bay Events Center, July 5, 2014

After shocking the MMA world last year by beating the seemingly unstoppable Anderson Silva not once but twice, Chris Weidman continued his unbeaten streak by dispatching Lyoto Machida in five rounds during UFC 175. Though Weidman came out on top, the beating the middleweight champion sustained has put him out of commission for at least a month—which me realize if I ever had to face him in the Octagon, I would definitely do it wearing the giant foam Chuck Liddell costume seen in the crowd that evening.
