    Anderson Silva didn't fulfill all of his promise Saturday night as Chael Sonnen left the octagon with his teeth and bones intact, but the UFC middleweight champ did apply a second-round beatdown to secure a record 10th title defense in the biggest fight in UFC history. "Ladies and gentlemen, this sport is the best sport in the world," the 37-year-old middleweight champ said, after stopping his outspoken rival at the 1:55 mark of the second round behind a big knee followed by a barrage of punches.

"Chael Sonnen's going to get his ass kicked like he's never gotten his ass kicked before,” Silva shouted in Portuguese, as manager Ed Soares translated for the 100-plus media members listening to Monday’s conference call promoting the UFC 148 showdown that takes place July 7 at the MGM Grand.

    Former UFC light heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz announced via Twitter that the final fight of his career would come via a trilogy bout against fellow former 205-pound champ Forrest Griffin at UFC 148 on July 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. “I just turned 37 years old. I’ve been in the game for 15 years and competing only with the UFC. I know it’s time for me to kind of hang ‘em up,” Ortiz told Radio last month.
