UFC 160 Results: Fighter Salaries for Main Event and Co-Main Event
The UFC’s Memorial Day weekend event, UFC 160 has wrapped up from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and Cain Velasquez made short work of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in defending his UFC heavyweight title.
Silva looked like he might have had a chance early when he stopped two Velasquez takedowns. Velasquez, more than just a wrestler shrugged those missed takedowns off and remained calm, switching to a striking game.
That worked out well for him as he dropped Silva with a right and then finished the fight on the ground, successfully defending his title and possibly setting up a fight with the man who won the co-main event.
In that co-main event, Junior dos Santos took the fight to Mark Hunt for the first two rounds and looked like he was on his way to a decision victory. Dos Santos got on his bike for most of the third round, using jabs to keep Hunt at bay, but as time ticked down, he unleashed an unexpected move, a spinning wheel kick that put Hunt on his back.
The ground strikes that followed were just icing on the cake, delivered before the referee could get in for the stoppage.
