Mixed Martiall Arts legend Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva earned his third victory in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, this time with a somewhat nostalgic performance against Cung Le in the co-main event of UFC 139 in San Jose, California
Le was more than a game opponent for Wanderlei Silva. Hollywood superstar unleashed a full arsenal of kicks and spinning back fists that hurt Wanderlei Silva on several occasions. Le continued to pressure the Brazilian, but Wanderlei Silva managed to bounce back towards the end of Round 1 to punish the Saigonian.
Round 2 started with Wanderlei Silva stalking Cung Le. Silva was patient, waiting for Cung Le to make a mistake that would cost him a fight. This moment came when Wanderlei Silva timed into one of Le's kicks, unleashing terror with Muay Thai clinch and Boxing combinations. Le was seriously hurt, as the referee had no choice but to step in to stop the action.
In the end, Wanderlei Siva earns his first victory since the encounter with Michael Bisping at UFC 110. Silva is now 34-11-1 in MMA, with sights on ending his career on a high note.
