The Flying Knee MMA:
What we all thought was damn near impossible has finally happened. After a dominant opening round, longtime middleweight champ Anderson Silva let down his guard and was knocked out in spectacular fashion by the undefeated challenger. The historic loss is Anderson’s first in the UFC and ends a long era of dominance over the middleweight division that saw him defend his title 10 times over seven years.

Watch the highlights below:
