With UFC on Fuel 4 and Strikeforce: Kennedy vs. Rockhold in one week, the MMA world had plenty of great performances to choose from. Who rose above the rest to be a star? Here are Cagewriter's choices. Tell us yours in the comments, on Facebook or on Twitter.

No. 1 star -- Chris Weidman: With title-shot implications hanging over his bout with Mark Munoz, Weidman wanted to make a statement. He made a clear one with a second-round elbow that knocked Munoz out.

No. 2 star -- Nate Marquardt: A year ago, he was unemployed after out-of-whack testosterone levels forced him out of a UFC bout. Now, he's the Strikeforce welterweight champion due to a memorable fourth-round knockout of Tyron Woodley. Today, you spell redemption N-A-T-E.

No. 3 star -- Jason High: Strikeforce showed almost every fight from Saturday night's card. Every fight, except High's 26-second submission of Nate Moore by guillotine. It wouldn't have taken much to squeeze in a minute of fighting, but they didn't. Instead, check out the play-by-play from MMA Junkie to find out what happened:

After High landed a pair of leg kicks, Moore opted to shoot for a takedown. But when he did, High took quick advantage and latched onto Moore's neck with a guillotine. Seconds later, that was all she wrote — Moore was forced to tap.

It was High's seventh win in a row.
