UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva continued his tear through two divisions at UFC 153, adding another stellar knockout to his highlight reel with a first TKO stoppage victory against Stephen Bonnar. Widely considered the top pound-for-pound fighter on the planet, Silva has now won an incredible sixteen-straight fights in the UFC, including victories over Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort, and Yushin Okami.

Chris Weidman has campaigned for a shot at Anderson Silva, since crushing Mark Munoz in the second round with a knockout stoppage at UFC on Fuel TV 4. A year later, he will finally get his wish. Weidman is 9-0 in his young career, including wins over Alessio Sakara, Tom Lawlor, and Demian Maia.
