The kick that knocked Vitor Belfort out was a perfectly placed straight kick. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva said that he was actually working on that kick with Stevan Seagal, who was with Silva as he walked to the Octagon on Saturday night.
"Steven Seagal helped me perfect that kick. That was a kick we were working on before I stepped in," Silva said at the post-fight press conference. "This was a kick that I trained a lot."
The front kick ended the fight at 3:25 of round one and allowed Silva to walk away from the fight with his UFC middleweight title in hand.
Talk after the fight was that Silva would face Georges St. Pierre in his next fight.
Silva has run through the UFC middleweight division since joining the UFC in 2007, racking up a 13 fight UFC unbeaten streak and eight straight title defenses, both UFC records.
