After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Chris Weidman, Alex Caceres, Joey Beltran and James Te Huna (Pictured) each an additional $40,000 for their special performances Wednesday night at “UFC on FUEL TV: Munoz vs. Weidman.”
Many expected tonight’s main event to be a close contest, but Weidman was able to out grapple highly decorated wrestler Mark Munoz before landing a perfectly timed elbow that temporarily put an end to Munoz’s title hopes.
Alex Caceres was impressive off his back with a triangle choke submission victory over Damacio Page.
Te Huna and late replacement Beltran excited the crowd for 15 full minutes in a bout that nobody thought would get past the opening round. Te Huna ultimately was too much in the standup for Beltran in his 205-pound debut.
‘UFC on FUEL TV 4‘ took place inside HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

James Te Huna vs. Joey Beltran ($40,000/each)
