Erick Silva came out guns blazing tonight (Weds., Oct. 9, 2013) at UFC Fight Night 29, which took place at Jose Correa Gymnasium in Barueri, Brazil, looking to score a quick finish of Dong Hyun Kim in their meaningful Welterweight co-main event.
And "Indio" looked well on his way to imposing his will thanks to his unbridled aggression and powerful punches, which he slung with evil intentions. "Stun Gun," however, was more than game, weathering the early blitz in hostile territory with help from his superior wrestling skills.
When Kim came out for the second stanza, he seemed intent to oblige Silva's stand up strategy as the pair exchanged wild strikes. Silva appeared to get the better of the scrap, a flying knee vis-a-vis Carlos Condit along the cage no doubt conjuring up old nightmares for the South Korean.
And then it happened.
In the midst of another wild flurry, Kim connected with a left hook just before Silva could land with a right of his own. The upstart Brazilian crumpled to the canvas unconscious in a supine position, while Kim soared into the rafters to do his best Dan Henderson flying hammerfist impression to knockout Silva cold.
What. A. Finish.
