UFC 148 Results: Anderson Silva Shuts Up Chael Sonnen With TKO In Round 2

The main event of UFC 148 featured a Middleweight Championship rematch between champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chael Sonnen. The fight was one of the most heavily-anticipated matches in recent memory and the crowd was white-hot from start to finish. In the end, Silva retained his title with a TKO in the second round.

In the first round, Sonnen immediately shot in with a strong double-leg and took down Silva, then spent the entire round in control on top. The second round was a different story altogether, however. Sonnen tried a clinch and knees against the cage in the first minute, but slipped going for a spinning backfist. Silva landed a knee to the chest while Sonnen was on the ground and capitalized with strikes until the fight was waved off a few seconds later, with Silva the victor.
