Video: Mike Goldberg, Joe Rogan's shock over Weidman's UFC 162 KO of Silva
Much of the MMA world was shocked nearly two weeks ago, not that Chris Weidman beat Anderson Silva to win the UFC’s middleweight title, but the manner in which he did it.
Weidman stopped Silva in the second round, stopping his 16-fight UFC win streak and 10 straight title defenses, but also becoming the first man to ever knock out the Brazilian pound-for-pound great.
Count UFC commentators Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan among those who were left stunned by the way the fight went down. Now you can go behind the scenes of UFC 162, which took place July 6 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and see some unique footage of Goldberg and Rogan seconds after Silva was laid out on the canvas by the challenger.
Check out the video above.
