LAS VEGAS — Fears that UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez's rematch with Antonio "Bigfoot" silva would look precisely just like the 1st fight turned out to be unsupported.

This one was even faster.

Velasquez (12-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) dropped the competitor with a short right early in the initial round then wasted no time basting him with a torrent of follow-up punches as silva (18-5, 2-2) struggled to regain his bearings. when silva did not respond in few minutes, referee Mario Yamasaki moved  in to off at the 1:21 mark of the primary round.

"My game strategy was moving lots," Velasquez said "The important factor wasn't staying ahead of him. Moving, searching for the takedown, searching for the punches, but never staying ahead of him."

That proved  to be a great strategy for Velasquez, who was shorter and smaller man in the cage, but whose speed had given silva problem in their initial meeting a year ago. That one finished with silva choking on his own blood less than four minutes into the fight. This one was over in 0.5 that time and without the blood.

The win marks the first victorious title defense in 2 tries for Velasquez, who won the UFC heavyweight title back from Junior dos Santos this past December when losing it to him in late 2011. With Velasquez winning at UFC 160 and dos Santos knock out heavyweight competitor Mark Hunt in the night's co-main event, the stage looks to be set for the two to meet during a rubber match.

Velasquez, who's ranked No. one in the USA these days Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA heavyweight rankings, has currently won 3 in a row since suffering the only loss of his career within the knockout at the hands of dos Santos. Silva, who ranked No. 7, loses for {the first|the primary} time since his first meeting with Velasquez a year ago.
