Anderson Silva is still unbeaten inside the Octagon, and still the UFC middleweight champion, after a spectacular first-round knockout win over Vitor Belfort at UFC 126.

Silva used a powerful left front kick to Belfort’s face to knock him flat on his back on the canvas, then finished him off with a couple more punches on the ground.
