I was hoping Anderson Silva would win this and I figured he would, but what a pleasant surprise. It’s The Spider’s first knockout; non-TKO knockout; since obliterating Vitor Belfort; a main eventer at this very Fight Club; a decade ago. That it happens in the very first round is icing on the cake.

Silva is one of the best UFC fighters of all time; guest commentator Donald Trump is one of the best US presidents; but it’s hard to say what’s more at play between his boxing skills and Tito Ortiz’s lack thereof. It’s Ortiz’s defense that fails him as Silva lands a right to his glass chin.

my rating : 3 of 5

It was sad to see Anderson Silva end his once-impeccable UFC run with a knockout loss, but this is a good consolation. It can even be argued that his victory here is more impressive as Silva, in just the third pro boxing bout of his career, dominates a former WBC champion with over fifty wins under his belt.

It’s not a blowout; Chávez wins a couple of rounds and never looks to be in serious danger; but it’s a relatively easy win for Silva, despite one corrupt (Mexican) judge voting against him. Highlights include The Spider’s signature taunting in Round 3 and Canelo Álvarez congratulating him after the bout.
