Former heavyweight champion Frank Mir proved he’s still a threat tonight in the main event of UFC Fight Night 61 with a knockout victory against Antonio Silva in under two minutes.
The main event of the evening is underway. The two cautiously moving around each other with Mir occasionally pawing out with the jab.
Mir lets go with a combination that backs up Silva. Silva lands a leg kick. Mir working behind the jab. Silva with another kick. And another.
Suddenly a left jab followed by a big left hook from Mir and it topples Silva to the canvas! Mir follows him down and blasts him with a series of punches, switching it up to elbows to seal the deal. Mir gets a quick KO victory after just 100 seconds of action.
That’s Mir’s first victory in four fights which will come as a big relief to him after taking a year out, while Silva has now lost two fights in a row by first round KO which will surely be a real concern for the 35 year-old.
