Ortiz rushed out of the gate and tried to unload on Silva. “Spider” played his tricks and moved around in the pocket to avoid the shots. Luckily for Silva, Ortiz’s punches seemed to be moving in slow-motion. It allowed Silva to time a perfect right hand that clipped Ortiz and had him hurt along the ropes. One final left hand by Silva ended up faceplanting Ortiz on the canvas and ending the co-headliner in dramatic fashion.
