LAS VEGAS – Chris Weidman has again defeated Anderson Silva in a UFC middleweight title fight, and it again ended in bizarre fashion.

After Silva got caught while dancing and taunting in the duo’s first bout, Weidman snapped the ex-champ’s leg with a check in Saturday’s rematch. It headlined the pay-per-view event at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Weidman staggered Silva in the first round, but the fight came to an abrupt stop in the second due to the injury.

Check out the highlights above.
