UFC 126 Anderson Silva Kick Heard around the world. Watch fight here free...

Unleashing a wicked left kick that moved Belfort's jaw toward his nose, Silva knocked down the former UFC champion, hesitated briefly to ensure there were signs of alertness, then moved in for a right punch and a left that led referee Mario Yamasaki to stop the fight at the 3-minute 25-second mark
. Brazil vs Brazil. Finally.  it very well earlier today, Brazilians just love to fight BraziliansThe head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship openly admits that Saturday's main event between middleweight titleholder Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort could turn out to be a stinker.

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. Although the first round hadn't had much action up until that point, the out-of-nowhere knockout from Silva was spectacular, and gave him an exclamation point on his UFC record 13th consecutive victory.

"We both know what these guys are capable of, and what kind of fight this could be," UFC President Dana White said Wednesday. "But if things go wrong because of the way that both these guys are sometimes, it could be the worst staring competition in the history of the world."

“He faked the body and kicked to the head . . . He caught me. That’s what happens.”

Though there were some hard feelings and plenty of posturing between the two former training partners in Brazil leading up to the match, Silva showed nothing but love towards Belfort afterwards.

“Before I even stepped in fighting, Vitor was a champion. He deserves the respect of everybody in this place,” said Silva.

The next challenge for Silva could be one of the biggest fights in the sport’s history: a dream match versus current welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

"[Jones] just came off a great win in less than two rounds and he's 23 years old," White said. "You can do that [stuff] when you're 23."
