Damn, what an arduous fight card to get through. We’ve seen two finishes the entire night (thus far) and this tremendously violent finish by Erick Silva was one of them. Looking at those hooks though. It’s like Travis Browne created the blueprint for punishing fighters going for the takedown, and Erick Silva just modified it to be applied appropriately in Brazil at UFC Fight Night 36.
Granted, Takenori Sato had so business being in the cage opposite of Silva, but he’s the guy that signed the contract. See, we know better — there’s no way from now until the sun kills the Earth that you or I would be locked inside the cage with Erick Silva. Sato found out the hard way. Props to ZProphet for the .gif.
