Round 1: As expected, they came out swinging with Liddell looking like he was about to put away Silva at one point. With a minute left in the round, they traded blows. I’d score it 10-9 for Liddell.
Round 2: About two minutes into the round Liddell slipped but quickly got back up. The two exchanged blows with Silva and Silve knocked him down again, with Liddell getting back up quickly again. Chuck opened up Silva again and they continued to trade blows. With about 30 seconds left Liddell hit Silva with some hard shots and opened Silva up. The second half of the round was crazy with how they were trading blows. I’d go 10-9 for Silva but it’s a tough one to call.
Round 3: Liddell took Silva down early but Silva quickly got up. Liddell badly hurt Silva with a barrage of punches in the middle of the third round and Silva looked like he was about to get knocked out. With 15 seconds left, Liddell took Silva down and won the round handily.
Winner: Chuck Liddell via decision. Amazing fight, Chuck Liddell is back!
