Leg kick from Diaz, but he's going to need to do more to score a win. Silva backs up Diaz with a combination, then he tries another flying knee and spinning back kick, but Diaz avoids it all. One minute to go and Diaz lands a kick, but Silva gets in a sneaky elbow that opens up the cut on Diaz's eye.
