You would think after beating Anderson Silva twice, Chris Weidman wouldn't need to prove himself to anyone as the middleweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). But there was still at least some doubt that he is as good as those two wins would indicate going into this title defense against Lyoto Machida in the main event of UFC 175 last night (Sat., July 5, 2014) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. But no more. Not after winning a unanimous decision to retain the 185-pound title. Not after he performed so well in the first three rounds, firmly establishing his dominance. Not after he faded in the fourth and found himself in trouble only to make a comeback in the fifth like the fighting champion he wants respect for being. Well, now he's got it after winning what could ultimately be the "Fight of the Year" in 2014 and setting the tone for what could be a long run at the top of the middleweight division.
