Round 1: Here we go, the rematch. John Sharp is the third man. They touch gloves, and Hunt holds the middle. Leg kick from Hunt misses, and Bigfoot circles. Hunt sizing things up. Body blow from Hunt. Slow to start here, both guys taking inventory. Bigfoot with a body kick, and then another. The second one landed better. Now Hunt crowds Silva on fence, and swings big. He came close on that right hand. Leg kick from Hunt. That was loud. Hunt still rotating in the center of the cage, and Bigfoot hanging on the edge. Body kick from Hunt, which sent a reverberation up Bigfoot's ribs. High knee from Bigfoot, but he misses the left follow-up. Another heavy inside leg kick from Hunt, as Silva misses with a right hand. A little caution here from the heavyweights, perhaps remembering that first war. Silva catches Hunt leaning in with a big right hand, and that hurt. Still Hunt comes on, and bam! A right hand on the ear and Silva drops down to his knees. Now Hunt with one, two more right hands going for the finish, and the referee stops it! It's Hunt's fight. Knockout! Just like that. Hunt with the big shot, and Silva couldn't recover.
