UFC middleweight champ Silva was dropped by Weidman on July 6 at UFC 162 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for his first loss in the UFC after a 16-0 start – and first knockout loss of his career.
Weidman, as the new champ, will defend the title in a rematch against Silva in the same building he won the belt when the two headline UFC 168 on Dec. 28.
But for now, take a look behind the scenes in UFC President Dana White’s latest video blog as Silva gets up from the canvas after the knockout and watches the replays of Weidman’s handiwork on the big screens as Weidman is interviewed by Joe Rogan.
Then go backstage as Silva is greeted by the likes of Roy Jones Jr., Usher and Chuck Liddell after his upset loss. The Silva action starts in the video blog after more behind-the-scenes footage from UFC 162, including Chris Leben‘s disappointment at his loss to Andrew Craig.
