UFC 160 Results: The Real Winners and Losers from Velasquez vs. Silva
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

It's slim pickings in the UFC's heavyweight division these days. Champion Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos stand head and shoulders above the rest of the class—and proved it at UFC 160.

Antonio 'Big Foot' Silva already knew how dangerous Velasquez is. He left blood and pride on the mat the first time he met the champion at UFC 146 last year. This time was little better.

Velasquez caught Silva with a one-two combination that dropped the giant. From there it was elementary, ground and pound leading to a stoppage.

Velasquez, of course, wasn't the night's only winner. Dos Santos delivered one of the most incredible knockouts in heavyweight history, connecting with a spinning wheel kick that dropped the hard-headed Mark Hunt and all but demanded a third match between Junior and Cain. I hope we see it before the end of the year.

The heavyweights weren't the only winners at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. There was plenty of great action up and down the card and 12 winners, at least on paper.

Sometimes, however, there's more to winning than having your hand raised at the end. A fighter can win in the record books and lose in the hearts of fans and matchmakers. Likewise, a loser who shows heart and passion, like Hunt, can emerge a true winner.
