Cain Velasquez TKOs Antonio Silva in bloodbath


Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez made quite a statement tonight with a thorough beating of Antonio Silva. He got Silva to the ground and busted him wide open with elbows, then continued to rain down blow after blow until Silva finally turtled up and Josh Rosenthal stepped in at the 3:36 mark of the first round.

Cain caught a leg kick and took it to the ground within five seconds. Bigfoot landed a nice upkick but Cain settled in to work in his guard. Velasquez opened up a big cut on Silva with a short elbow. Velasquez attacked the cut with more elbows and Bigfoot could barely see through all the blood. The referee stopped the bout to check the cut, but the doctor deemed Bigfoot good to continue.

Bigfoot had no chance with the blood pouring in his eyes. That fight was a gimmie for Cain.

Overoids doesn't deserve to be in the conversation.I have a ton of respect for Cormier though.

I would still be of the opinion the Strikeforce heavies were better. I expected Cain to smash Bigfoot, maybe not quite this badly but I didn't expect a competitive fight. Bigfoot wasn't even top 3 among SF heavies.Overeem, Cormier and Barnett are the top dogs from SF. SF had 3 great heavies, the UFC has 2. Huuuuge gap from JDS and Cain to the next best UFC heavy. And I think Overeem would be a 50/50 fight with JDS. Barnett would beat up Mir IMO, and Mir appears to be the #3 UFC HW. Cormier might also be the best HW in the world, we don't quite know yet. Now after drug testing Overeem might well come back a lesser fighter. We'll have to wait and see on that.

Cain wasn't even breathing heavy when the fight was over. Amazing.

Unfair? The guy beat Fedor and was in the GPX tourney. Have you ever considered he wants to fight top guys?
