Video: Watch UFC 162's Anderson Silva fight Vitor Belfort in 2011 title bout


On Saturday at UFC 162, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva looks for his 11th consecutive title defense. Now, you can watch his eighth, which came in 2011 against Vitor Belfort.

If Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) gets past challenger Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) at this weekend’s pay-per-view event in Las Vegas, he could be lined up for a superfight with welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre or light-heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones.

However, on Tuesday, Belfort (23-10 MMA, 12-6 UFC), who’s recently made quick work of Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold, said he wants a rematch with Silva.

Check out the above video to see how their first meeting concluded.
