UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" took place last night (Sat., July 7, 2012) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring Anderson Silva once and for all vanquishing his arch nemesis by stopping Chael Sonnen via strikes in the second round of their middleweight championship fight.

That's 2-0.

Forrest Griffin sent Tito Ortiz off into retirement on a low note, not only defeating him via close unanimous decision but also stealing all this thunder with some wacky post-fight antics. Running out of the cage and then taking the microphone from Joe Rogan to conduct "The People's Champ's" last interview?

For shame.

Other action on the card saw Cung Le defeat Patrick Cote, Demian Maia make a successful welterweight debut by stopping Dong Hyun Kim, Chad Mendes embarrass Cody McKenzie, and Mike Easton beat Ivan Menjivar.

A photo gallery (via US Presswire) is available for your viewing pleasure after the jump. For complete results and blow-by-blow coverage of all the night's action click here.
