Anderson Silva just knocked out Vitor Belfort with a front kick to the face. I will repeat that, my gentle Maniacs.

In the main event of UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" in Las Vegas, Nevada, Anderson Silva knocked out Vitor Belfort with a front kick to the face.

It began the way most Silva fights do, with neither fighter wanting to be the first to engage. When Belfort decided to wade in, he landed with a left hook.

That was the end of the dancing for "The Spider."

Unfortunately, it was also the best offense "The Phenom" would have.

It looked like it might be the staring contest company President Dana White feared after no punches were thrown in the first minute and a half.

Nope.

Once the two deadly strikers decided to engage, it wasn't long before someone fell flat.

That someone was Vitor Belfort. In one of the most spectacular knockouts in UFC history.

The middleweight champion did it again. If Georges St. Pierre defeats Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto, he will have to contend with the best striker in the world.

Can he do it?
