The UFC on Fuel TV 4 headliner is now official, as Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman tipped the scales under the contracted middleweight limit at Tuesday’s weigh-ins. Both Munoz (Pictured, file photo) and Weidman checked in at 186 pounds.

The former NCAA Division I All-American wrestlers top an 11-fight bill Wednesday night at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The Fuel TV-broadcast main card will also see once-beaten Kenny Robertson (170) welcome former 185-pound competitor Aaron Simpson (171) to the welterweight ranks, while hard-punching James Te Huna (205) faces durable ex-heavyweight Joey Beltran (205). Another onetime heavyweight, Karlos Vemola (186), will also see action, as “The Terminator” locks horns with Tristar Gym representative Francis Carmont (186).

Rounding out the televised card will be a bantamweight confrontation pitting “Ultimate Fighter” Season 14 finalist T.J. Dillashaw (136) against Englishman Vaughan Lee (135) and a lightweight affair between standup specialist Anthony Njokuani (156) and nine-time Octagon vet Rafael dos Anjos (156).

Immediately prior to the main card broadcast, the evening’s preliminary proceedings will stream live on Facebook, highlighted by a bantamweight pairing between “TUF 12” alum Alex Caceres (136) and former WEC talent Damacio Page (136). Flyweights Josh Ferguson (125) and Chris Cariaso (125) will also meet on the five-fight undercard, as will middleweights Rafael Natal (186) and Andrew Craig (185), welterweights Marcelo Guimaraes (171) and Daniel Stittgen (170) and bantamweights Issei Tamura (135) and Raphael Assuncao (136).
