Antonio Silva made his presence known in St. Louis as he defeated Mike Kyle by technical knockout in the second round of their Strikeforce bout.
The Brazilian heavyweight was in trouble early when he ate a tremendous right hand from Kyle in the first round. From there, Kyle tried finishing the fight with hammer fists and a variety of punches on the ground, but he couldn’t get through Silva’s guard enough to land anything effective.
In the second round, Silva came out as the aggressor and landed a strong right hand early. A kick and takedown later, Silva put the fight on the ground where he would ultimately finish it. After a failed attempt at a D’Arce choke, Silva worked his way into full mount. At that point, it was all she wrote for Kyle as Silva rained down massive hammer fists. “Big” John McCarthy pulled Silva off Kyle for the TKO victory at 2:49 of the second round.
“He connected. I wasn’t dizzy,” Silva said about the first round of the fight.
As far as his next bout goes, Silva said that he “doesn’t pick opponents” and that he would fight anyone that Strikeforce puts in front of him next.
Benji Radach’s return to regular competition was a tough one as Ovince St. Preux dominated him for the duration of their fight. Radach, who hasn’t fought since April of 2009, came back to a hungry St. Preux at light heavyweight. Radach showed some life in the beginning of the third round, but ultimately couldn’t answer St. Preux, giving up his back for a majority of the fight and allowing points to be scored from that position.
The fight went to decision with Ovince St. Preux defeating Benji Radach by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-25).
