The fight was all Weidman after a few tense moments at the beginning. After getting cranked with a head kick, the two-time All-American wrestler got a takedown and stayed on top of Bongfeldt, going from position to position with ease while working some ground-and-pound. Bongfeldt got to his feet with 30 seconds left and ate a knee. As the 10 second clapper hit, Weidman locked in a standing guillotine choke that was extremely tight and Bongfeldt almost immediately tapped.
The time of the stoppage was 4:54 of the first round.
Weidman told Joe Rogan following the fight that he popped his meniscus during the fight and was working to pop it back in.
