In their first fight (November 9, 2003), the champ Silva punished the shit-talking upstart Jackson with soccer kicks to his head and 20 knees to his face to record a TKO. For the rematch, Silva added through subtraction, needing only five knees (beginning at the 4:03 mark) to the face after a stunning right hook to leave Jackson bloodied, unconscious, and slumped on the ropes, half out of the ring. We'd say we feel cheated out of 15 additional knee strikes—but we don't want to piss off a guy whose nickname is "The Axe Murderer."
