Silva TKO’s Sonnen: UFC 148 Results

Silva celebrates after the second round stoppage at UFC 148

Anderson Silva, widely considered the greatest fighter of all time, answered all questions from the first fight against Chael Sonnen and defeated him by TKO in the second round in their rematch at UFC 148. Sonnen missed a spinning backfist, which caused the challenger to lose balance and hit the mat. That’s all the opening Silva needed, pouncing on his downed opponent and finishing him in seconds.
