UFC Fight Night 14
saw two fighters debuting in the light heavyweight division: Anderson Silva and
Brandon Vera. Silva showed why he’s highly regarded as the best pound-for-pound
fighter in the world when he went up in weight class and knocked out James
Irvin in the main event in just 61 seconds. Vera won a unanimous decision over
Reese Andy, but didn’t live up to the expectations dropping down from heavyweight.
