At 38 years of age, Anderson Silva has had a great career. Making his UFC debut in 2006 defeating Chris Leben in 49 seconds of the first round from a vicious knee. Then he went on to beat big names such as Rich Franklin, Dan Henderson, Forest Griffin, Chael Sonnon and others to have a perfect UFC record (33-4 as a professional)

Silva was mainly known for his uncanny ways to knock his opponent out, his amazing weave ability, and his energy in the ring. He always encouraged a brawl if the opponent seemed to run. But on UFC 162 he finally got what he asked for. Chris Weidman capitalized on Silva as he dropped his hands in his usual cocky routine. This time some one finally connected and knocked him out!!!

Many believed it might have been a fluke or a lucky punch so a rematch was immediately made for UFC 168. The first round didn’t look to good for Anderson Silva. He seemed to be getting beaten in the stand up department and was also taken down and ground & pounded viciously. Silva has always been tough and survived the first round.

The second round is where it all turned for Silva. 1:16 into the 2nd round Silva through a high inside leg kick that landed on Weidman’s knee and snapped Silva’s leg in two. Silva had to be carried out of the ring.

It was no secret that Silva had plenty of hate. Whether it was his attitude or if they felt that his winning streak was a complete fluke. Regardless, Silva will be in the record books for what he did in this sport. Get well soon Silva
