The live clash of the titans that began in the Ultimate Fighting Championship i.e. the UFC 110 has taken most fighting fans by storm. The Acer Arena was rocked by the presence of some serious testosterone only a few hours ago.
The cherry on the top was the heavyweight fight between Velasquez and Nogeuira; where Velasquez sets the bar by being the unbeaten champ in the rings that he has conquered and Noguiera stands tall at both a former UFC and Pride Champion. Their epic clash was followed soon after by a middleweight stint between between Bisping and Silva, both of whom are legends in their own rites.
The competition kicked off between Nogueira and Velasquez with more yummy fights on the way. Who will win, who will lose and who will take it all was the question that everyone was asking. Well now results from the first round are in and it seems that Cain will be retain his status as an unbeaten fighter as he has claimed the heavyweight bout at the UFC110.
Velasquez and his punches were unstoppable, from the moment he began raining down a long line on Noguiera his fate was sealed. Cain now stands at an 8-0 score after this match while Noguiera has fallen to a 32-6-1.
