At UFC 126, Anderson Silva was set to defend his middleweight title against Vitor Belfort. Belfort was seen as a man who could give Silva a run for his money and end his impressive win streak and give Silva his first loss inside the Octagon.
Towards the middle of the first round we go. Both Silva and Belfort standing, waiting for the other to make a move. Silva keeping his hands nice and low, like in all of his fights.
Then, in the blink of an eye, Silva drops Belfort with a front kick to the jaw. Shock and awe filled the stadium as Silva’s impressive front kick settled in everyone’s head.
Silva’s front kick was supposedly taught to him by none other then movie star, Steven Seagal.
Silva now is set to defend his title at UFC 134 in Rio for the UFC’s first trip to Brazil since the 90s.
Belfort on the other hand is set to fight Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.
