Video: WWE stars re-enact Anderson Silva's UFC 148 win over Chael Sonnen during Monday Night RAW

I know a lot of highbrow mixed martial arts (MMA) fans can't stomach watching anything from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), but trust me, this is one video you don't want to miss.

That's because CM Punk, WWE Champion and real-life buddy of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Chael Sonnen, re-enacted the UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" main event with his in-ring opponent, Daniel Bryan, during last night's (July 9, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw.

Punk misses with a spinning backfist, falls on his ass and takes a knee to the chest.

That's how Chael Sonnen ended up losing his 185-pound title fight against Anderson Silva last weekend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, en route to a second round technical knockout finish.

Art imitates life.
