Wrapping up the UFC 153: "Silva vs. Bonnar" event that took place on Sat., Oct. 13, 2012, at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, featuring Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar and much, much more.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view this past Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012) with UFC 153: "Silva vs. Bonnar" from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, featuring Anderson Silva knocking out Stephen Bonnar in the very first round.

With a paralyzing knee to the body.

In the co-main event of the evening, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira continued his streak of being awesome in his home country, submitting Dave Herman in the second round of their heavyweight tussle.

Other action on the card saw Jon Fitch take a decision over Erick Silva that wasn't boring, Demian Maia submit Rick Story, Phil Davis do the same to Wagner Prado, and Glover Teixeira continue to prove the hype right.
