UFC 146 Results: Cain Velasquez Makes Huge Statement In Win Over Silva


Cain Velasquez UFC 146
In the co-main event, former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez looked on fire as he spoiled Antonio “Big Foot” Silva’s UFC debut with a first round TKO win.

In the first round, Silva threw a kick and immediately was put on his back by Velasquez and Velasquez threw some hard fast strikes.  From there Velasquez threw a short elbow that cut Silva open over the bridge of the nose and blood came gushing out.  Referee Josh Rosenthal then sent Silva to get his cut checked out by the doctor and he was good to go.

The action restarts and Velasquez gets back to work with punches.  Silva made a few attempts to get up but Velasquez started throwing hard punches in Silva’s guard and Silva just couldn’t continue.

Referee Josh Rosenthal stopped the contest at just 3:36 into the first round.

“It’s definitely a step in the right direction,” Velasquez said post-fight.  “Daniel Cormier, my teammate fought Silva and he told me some things I could take into my fight.”

With the win, Velasquez moves his UFC record to 8-1 and puts himself back towards another shot at the UFC heavyweight title.
