UFC 162 results: Weidman KO’s Silva to capture Middleweight crown in Las Vegas



UFC 162 took place tonight from inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Chris Weidman defeated all odds en route his KO victory over one of MMA’s greatest Anderson Silva to capture the UFC Middleweight title.  Silva looked in control with his striking but it was Weidman who capitalized on Silva’s mistake to end the night and championship reign of “The Spider”.

Weidman saw an opening while Silva was pretending to be hurt and landed a crisp hook that connected on the chin to end the night for Silva.  Weidman extends his undefeated win streak by capturing the gold in sin city.
