Silva knocks out Belfort with a front Kick
by: Kuma

Anderson Silva knocked out Vitor Belfort with a classic front kick to the head. It is the first time I have seen this technique used to knock out an opponent in the UFC.

It was beautiful. This is a very effective kick, but requires great skill to place it with the power needed to knock out your opponent. Wow!

Yamamoto vs Johnson
by: Trent

Just watched the free UFC 126 MMA fight between Yamamoto and Johnson. It was a good fight and nice to be able to watch it free. Johnson won the match and dominated Yamamoto.
