Silva: Kick Felt Round The World : UFC® 126

Posted in Fighters, Martial Arts, News, ULTIMATE FIGHTING with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2011 by Combative Corner

Anderson “The Spider” Silva, now with a career record of 28-4-0, appears, only when not completely bored, invincible.  Vitor Belfort (19-9-0), stood a chance (however small) of de-throning Silva last night at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada until, at 3 minutes 25 seconds (of Round 1) a front kick by Anderson was perfectly placed into and up under “The Phenom’s” chin.

The question arose long again, and continues, “Can Silva be stopped?”  Discussions are starting behind the scenes for a Super Match between Silva and George “Rush” St. Pierre.  This shall prove to be the fight of the decade.  Will Silva be able to make it look easy? Again?

The CombativeCorner is eager to hear everyone’s thoughts!
