The stellar of UFC Vegas 12 had a historical event, where Anderson Silva lived his last official fight in a cage. The Brazilian could not show his great technique and quality that always distinguished him above the rest, having in front of one of the best of today, Uriah Hall. He was knocked out in a big way and, with his face swollen and bloody, he said goodbye to Mixed Martial Arts.
In the first round, the former champion kept his distance during the five minutes. Hall, for his part, he controlled the center of the octagon at all times, although he did not dare to throw blows either, knowing the power against his rival. Both fighters were cautious, without fear, but with great care and respect about the opposite. While none attempted to finish in this round, they were able to score what they were looking for.
The second block was the same as the first, with a Hall controlling the octagon and Silva without moving too much. Although he gave the Jamaican a good blow, he endured it in a big way and did not change his strategy for the game. He studied the movements of his rival, landing a few punches and then backing away so as not to be caught by a blast from the Brazilian. Although it was even, everything seemed like it would start with much more intensity in the next one.
As could be seen in the previous one, both put much more power to the blows and the real fight began. The kicks of Silva to the body of his rival and his quick responses to try to surprise. Anderson he risked with the quick blows, but Uriah he defended his position very well. At the end of it, Hall He dropped the Brazilian with a right hand behind his ear, connected with punches, but the bell saved him.
Already in the fourth round, Uriah Hall surprised Anderson Silva and he connected a blow with the right, which could not be avoided and, much less, resisted by the South American. The former champion of the Semi-Complete Weights fell to the canvas and there came the rain of blows. The referee of the event had nothing to wait to stop the fight, which ended up giving a gigantic victory for the Jamaican, in the retirement of his idol.
