Chris Weidman has called out middleweight champion Anderson Silva following his knockout win over Mark Munoz at UFC on Fuel 4.

Weidman won courtesy of a TKO at 1:37 in the second round after he landed a heavy elbow to counter a Munoz right hook.

After dominating the majority of the fight, Weidman claimed victory in his fifth consecutive UFC bout, opening a cut above Munoz's right eye in the process. Weidman edged the first round 10-8, scoring several near-submisions.

"I've just been playing around with some elbows," Weidman said. "I've got the long reach for it. Thank God it landed. (Now) I want Anderson Silva. Give me a shot please."

England's Vaughan Lee was defeated by TJ Dillashaw earlier in the evening. Dillashaw picked up the victory via a rear-naked choke at 2:33 of the first round.
