“UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva” Recap: Dos Santos K.O.’s Yvel, Evans survives to defeat Silva

LAS VEGAS – Rashad Evans had gotten away from his dominating wrestling of late, favoring his speed and power in the exciting knockouts of Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin. Following his devastating knockout loss at the hands of Lyoto Machida, some fans wondered if Evans would revert back to wrestling in this bout against the heavy-handed Thiago Silva.

That is exactly what he did in a dominating effort through the first two and a half rounds against the the very tough brazilian. Evans used his speed and superior wrestling to control the fight, taking Silva down countless times during the first two frames of the bout.

Silva managed to work back to his feet each time he was taken down, but was unable to mount any tangible offense until late in the third round after calling out Evans to man up and come forward for a war. Silva taunted Evans with his hands down by his waste and motioning with both hands for Evans to come forward, in an attempt to bait the former light heavyweight champion into a stand up battle.
