In case you were unable to join us last night for our UFC 160 Live Discussion, which Mike Tyson referred to as the most legible UFC live discussion on the Internet, you missed perhaps one of the more exciting PPV events in recent memory, and we owe it all to some fired up heavyweights. We hoped and prayed to the gods of punching and kicking that Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, hot off of his unexpected knockout of Alistair Overeem, would be better prepared for this rematch and championship title shot against Cain Velasquez than he was last time these two faced off, in a non-title match when Velasquez turned Bigfoot into a bloody mess.
Alas, we don’t always get what we want. Velasquez once again handled Silva in the first round, just without all of the gore this time. Velasquez remains the UFC Heavyweight Champion, and for the third time in his last five fights, the champ will presumably face the No. 1 contender and former champ Junior dos Santos, who was also victorious in a much more exciting fight.
