Cain Velasquez def. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva by TKO at 3:36 of Round 1

Cain Velasquez

“Everytime you go in there it’s a new challenge. I knew he was going to be a tough guy to finish and he posed certain threats but I’m happy I was able to go in there and perform. I took my time and waited to get good position to turn it on and finish the fight. I had to get really good posture and sit up in order to get power and land those hard shots. I knew if I kept the speed up the ref would step in and stop it.”

Antonio Silva

“I couldn’t see anything after I got cut. I was trying to survive in there and get through the round and get wiped off and have the cut fixed so that I can go out there and perform in the second. Congrats to Cain.”
