2 of the greatest MMA strikers of all time. Vitor Belfort was in the middle of his prime coming into the Anderson title fight. The former LHW champ (and HW tourney winner) was on a 5 fight win streak with 4 KOs (3 in the 1st round) including KOing former MW champ Rich Franklin. Belfort went on to win 5 of his next 6 fights (4 via KO, 1 via RNC) only losing a LHW title fight vs Jon Jones in a fight he almost won via armbar. Silva was on his GOAT UFC win streak. 13 fight win streak with 11 finishes and 7 title defenses coming into his 8th title defense. Silva defended his MW title for the 8th time in spectacular fashion. The greatest KO in MMA history.
