@SportsBata ..nuff said

Middleweight champion Anderson Silva TKO’ed Chael Sonnen 1:55 in the second round of #UFC148 at the #MGMGrandGardenArena #LasVegas on Saturday night, and defended his middleweight crown! Sonnen dominated Silva in the first round, but once Silva landed a crisp hard body shot in the second round, Sonnen was stunned! Seconds later the match was over, and Silva got the TKO W! Check out the video above!

#ReMatch Silva has now successfully defended his belt 10 times, and won 15 straight matches! #UFC148 was a rematch from an earlier fight between Silva and Sonnen! Their first encounter was in 2010, it was dubbed the ‘fight of the year’! Sonnen dominated the first 4 1/2 rounds of that battle until Silva turned it around, and forced Sonnen into submission! Check out the video below!

Forrest Griffin won a close unanimous decision over Tito Ortiz in the earlier bout in #UFC148! These former lightweight champions exchanged kicks and punches to the legs, head and body, as Griffin barely edged out Ortiz; winning 29-28 on three judges scorecards! Check out the video below!
