Anderson Silva vs Stephan Bonnar full fight video highlights from UFC 153

Watch Anderson Silva do what he does best as he becomes the first man to knock out Stephan Bonnar (technically) inside the Octagon in the main event of UFC 153 on Sat., Oct. 13, 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva moved up to the light heavyweight division to battle Stephan Bonnar in the main event of UFC 153 last night (Sat., Oct. 13, 2012) at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. He did so because the company needed someone to step up to the save the event, so he took one for the team and decided to entertain the legion of fans who had been looking forward to the Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar featherweight championship clash that had previously been penciled in. "The Spider" did just that, too, ducking and diving and juking and jiving before becoming the first man to finish "The American Psycho" via knockout (technical) in the UFC. It was yet another truly masterful performance from the greatest artist of violence mixed martial arts (MMA) has ever seen.
