No. 1-ranked UFC heavyweight Fabricio Werdum surprised the world by defeating iron-willed slugger Mark Hunt for the UFC interim heavyweight title in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., November 15, 2014) UFC 180 pay-per-view (PPV) from the Arena Ciudad in Mexico City, Mexico.
Although many picked Werdum, who had spent the last two months training in Mexico City’s high altitude, to beat Hunt, who took the high-profile bout on short notice, no one expected “Vai Cavalo” to end the fight like he did.
Werdum nailed Hunt with a vicious flying knee in the second round, swarming with a flurry of punches to get the stoppage, the interim belt, and a future date with official champion Cain Velasquez. Check out the highlights of Werdum’s huge win below:
