Cain Velasquez (c) vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva for the UFC heavyweight championship
It’s main event time, as UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (11-1) faces Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (18-4) for a second time. This one, though, is for the belt and Silva is coming off a finish of Alistair Overeem. The referee will be Mario Yamasaki.
Round 1: Less than 10 seconds in and Velasquez shoots. Silva, though, fights it off – with a little help from the fence. Silva comes in, Velasquez makes a weak attempt for a takedown and gets denied. Velasquez connects on a right hand and pounces, landing several rights and this one is all over. Silva makes a protest, but he wasn’t protecting himself and Velasquez was teeing off.
