Great knockout, but did Vitor really show us something?

First and foremost, it was a great knockout, very cool.

But I don't think that fight raises his stock at all. He can hit hard and stop people, but we knew that going into the fight, he didn't show that he has improved on any weakness, or broadened his game. I see no reason to think he has a better chance against Silva again, or that he has much of a chance against Weidman

Yeah, it was very cool that he knocked out Hendo.

But before the fight, was anyone really thinking "If vitor can catch someone clean and finish them, he'll have proven he's a more dangerous contender for the title"?

Jones would abuse vitor again.. If vitor fights in the USA, he won't have the horse meat nor the size advantage

It actually isn't, but whatever.

He just beat a good opponent in the first round. Exactly what he should have done to warrant a title shot.

He showed that after more than 10 years on top, he improved and added new stuff to his arsenal. It took him less than 2 min to get his third straight head kick knockout, this time doing so to Dan mtfkin Henderson, a legend known for his unbelievable chin.

Now, i got no idea what you expected but it does not get much better than this.
