UFC 160 Live Blog: Cain Velasquez vs. Bigfoot Silva 2
Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva for the UFC Heavyweight Championship
This one will be argued as an early stoppage. I'm OK with it. (My colleague, Jeff Wagenheim, will attend the interviews and write a postfight column that you can read on SI.com tonight or tomorrow morning if you're headed off to bed.) Silva was taking a lot of shots at end. Silva walked right into Velasquez' fist as he went for the uppercut. Velasquez saw it coming. A man of few words, Velasquez tells Rogan he'd be down to meet JDS again. And the heavyweight championship revolving door swings again.
That's it for us and UFC 160. See you on June 15 for UFC 161. Hendo-Evans. Nelson-Miocic. Til then...
Junior Dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt (heavyweight)
What a great fight. Mark Hunt is a great challenge for JDS. He's really making him work for it.
Glover Teixeira vs. James Te Huna (lightweight)
Texeira is over the moon that Mike Tyson has hugged him. I think he's happier about that than the win. Texeira tells Rogan he doesn't like to pull guard, that Liddell taught him not to a long time ago. But it worked out for him tonight.
Gray Maynard vs. TJ Grant (lightweight)
Mike Goldberg plugging the Fertittas' new online poker biz with some dude who's banked $18 million. They can thank TJ Grant for that time to plug.
Donald Cerrone vs. KJ Noons (lightweight)
Coach Jackson says Cerrone's owning this in corner.
Noons nose is probably broken. Tells his cornerman to get blood out. Cornerman says it's out, which means Noons can't breathe. Noons has cleaned up, smiling as they head into R3. This guy loves the scrap.
