The main event of UFC 168 between Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva was nearly a half year in the making and ended in a way no one expected. Weidman during the 1st fight defeated the UFC’s longest tenured champion with a 2nd round KO. The same would happen Saturday night but in a much different kind of knockout.

During the UFC’s last card of the year, the two fighters tangled up again in what was largely considered the biggest rematch in UFC history. People would finally see if in fact Weidman was the true champion or was it just a lucky fluke when Weidman knocked out the showboating champion Anderson Silva.

The opening round commenced and saw Weidman nearly end the fight in the first round, Silva dropped to the ground after a solid shot from Weidman, Silva miraculously recovered and has able to hang on.

In the second round Silva looked to stay away from Weidman using leg kicks to keep distance.  One minute and 16 seconds into the second round Silva tried to land a really hard leg kick which was blocked by Weidman and snapped Silva’s shin bone in two, ending the fight immediately.

The ending to the title fight solidified itself as one of the most horrific injuries suffered not only inside the UFC but in sports in general.
