Video: Full Thiago Silva knockout highlights of Rafael Feijao at UFC on Fuel TV 10

Skip the the three-minute mark to watch Thiago Silva score the "Knockout of the Night" last night over Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante at UFC on Fuel TV 10, which took place from Paulo Sarasates Arena in Fortaleza, Brazil.

Thiago Silva returned to Brazil last night (Sat., June 8, 2013) after six years away to fight fellow Brazilian knockout artist, Rafael Cavalcante, at UFC on Fuel TV 10, which took place from Paulo Sarasates Arena in Fortaleza, Brazil.

Silva vowed to "raise the roof in an explosive exchange," tempting fate against the heavy-handed former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion, who was making his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut.

He delivered.

In fact, Silva -- who has been plagued by substance abuse issues such as marijuana and pain killers in recent years -- scored the "Knockout of the Night," as well as the "Fight of the Night," pocketing an extra $100,000 in bonus money. It was his first victory since a knockout of Keith Jardine at UFC 102 back in Aug. 2009.

Here is how he did it, according to UFC on FUEL TV analyst Brian Stann:

"Silva defended himself by keeping his chin down and hands up and absorbed what Feijao threw at him. Then Thiago backed him up and stood him up against the cage. Thiago threw two big punches and hit him on the back of the head behind the ear, and then connected up the middle to the chin and knocked him out."
