Watch Chris Weidman Knock Out Anderson Silva at UFC 162 (GIF)
Anderson Silva got his first taste of what a knockout feels like inside the octagon tonight at UFC 162, when Chris Weidman shocked the world with a second-round strike that ended one of the most anticipated bouts of the year, and potentially one of the greatest careers in our sport.
It was during the pre-fight weigh-ins for UFC 162 that Anderson Silva laid one on Chris Weidman’s lips, but it was Weidman who laid one on the chin during the fight. At first it was like any other Silva moment, where a taunt followed by a series of head movements made his opponent look silly as they connected with nothing but air, but a sneaky left hook came in, and the champion went down.
