Brazilian knockout artist Thiago Silva won "The Battle of Comebacks" at UFC 125, defeating Brandon "The Truth" Vera via a dominant Unanimous Decision. Vera was unable to execute his gameplan, as Silva completely disables his striking game throughout the fight.
Every round opened with a short striking session, but then it was Thiago Silva who proved himself a more well-rounded fighter, by clinching and taking Brandon Vera down at will. On the ground, Vera had nothing to sell, giving Thiago Silva an opportunity to punch him at will. The crowd booed, but it was a too risky for both fighters, and Thiago Silva who played it smartest out of the two.
In the end, Silva got a clear 30-26, 30-27, 30-27 Unanimous Decision. Brandon Vera got himself a broken nose, and a possibility of getting cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
