UFC 126 is now history, and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva broke his own record of most consecutive UFC title defenses tonight after knocking out fellow Brazilian Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort in only 3:25 of the first round. Meanwhile, Forrest Griffin was able to earn a unanimous decision victory over Rich Franklin.
Light-heavyweight prospect Jon Jones took an enormous jump right to the front of the light-heavyweight division, earning a title shot against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua after submitting previously undefeated Ryan Bader in the second round. Jones will be replacing his training partner Rashad Evans against Rua, after it was revealed that Evans had blown his knee out in training.
