Wanderlei Silva battles Cung Le to earn TKO finish in 2nd

by Dann Stupp and John Morgan | source: mmajunkie.com

Wanderlei Silva had his hands full, but after figuring out the puzzle that is kickboxer Cung Le, he got a much-needed win.

Silva used a trademark and well-rounded attack late in the the second round to batter and bloody his middleweight opponent en route to a knockout victory – his first KO win in three-and-a-half years.

The fight co-headlined UFC 139's pay-per-view main card from HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., following prelims on Facebook and Spike TV.

Awesome fight. Im a fan of both fighters but Wand is a true favorite. Wand looked better than most of his previous fights in the UFC. He was waiting for opportune moments and threw knees and kicks rather than just standing and wanging. Really looked oldschool tonight. Everyone quit bitching about the stoppage. As far as bad stoppages go this one was extremely low on the radar. Cung was done and hes gonna need massive surgery on that nose. It could have gone a little longer but its not a major controversial stop. Everyone who said Cung was gonna retire Wand is just looking to save face. WAR!

Cung is a great 1 round fighter. His kicks and ranged attacks are so hard to deal with...too bad they are incredibly gassing or else he would be completely awesome. Threw too many kicks, gassed, and got swarmed.grats to Wand
