Chris “The All-American” Weidman is the new UFC middleweight champion after knocking out Anderson Silva!!! Weidman, never intimidated by the showboating, mean-mugging Silva, won round one with a take-down and hard ground-and-pound. Silva, clearly frustrated, tried to goad Weidman into a striking contest. Weidman obliged and with a flurry, knocked Silva down, followed him to the ground, and then continued hitting him until his eyes rolled back into his head and Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight.
