On this day in MMA history Anderson Silva knocked Vitor Belfort out at UFC 126 back in 2011.
The win was Silva’s 10th title defense in the UFC, and became one of the most iconic knockouts in the history of not only the UFC, but the sport of MMA as well.
Fast forward 5 years to today, and we are currently gearing up to see Silva make his highly anticipated return to the Octagon after being suspended for a year for a failed drug test back in 2015.
Silva will fight Michael Bisping on February 27th at ‘UFC Fight Night: London’ on UFC Fight Pass.
