Silva knocked out Belfort with a front kick and follow-up punches to retain his middleweight crown in spectacular fashion. The 35-year-old Brazilian has rattled off 14 consecutive victories, a record 13 of them inside the Octagon. The defeat snapped a string of five straight wins for Belfort, who had not been knocked out in more than six years.
The eleven other fighters who were tested by the NSAC also passed UFC 126 drug screening: Forrest Griffin, Rich Franklin, Jon Jones, Jake Ellenberger, Miguel Torres, Donald Cerrone, Chad Mendes, Paul Taylor, Demetrious Johnson, Mike Pierce and Kyle Kingsbury.
Griffin defeated Franklin by unanimous decision in the co-headliner between former UFC champions. An Xtreme Couture Mixed Martial Arts representative, Griffin had not competed in more than a year. The 31-year-old had been sidelined with a shoulder injury.view original article >>
