UFC 132: Chris Leben Knocks Out Wanderlei Silva in 27 Seconds

Chris Leben Knocks Out Wanderlei Silva at UFC 132.One of the great knockouts in mixed martial arts may now have been knocked out too many times himself, as Wanderle Silva was knocked out cold by Chris Leben on Saturday night at UFC 132.

Silva, known as the Axe Murderer, is one of the all-time stars of MMA, but it was ugly to see how quickly Leben knocked him out with a series of uppercuts and additional punches on the ground on Saturday night. The whole fight lasted just 27 seconds. Silva has taken so many shots in his long MMA career that he might not be able to go on much longer.

"I can't believe it's real," Leben said of his victory. "Holy s**t."

The win improves Leben's record to 26-7, and it's probably the biggest win of his career, given the legendary status of Silva. Leben made a nod to Silva's status as an all-time great in his post-fight comments.

"Wanderlei, I love you," Leben said. "You're my hero."

Silva is the hero of many MMA fans, but with the loss his record falls to 33-11-1, including 2-6 in his last eight fights. It might be time for him to call it quits.
