Silva would finally get off some shots of his own, but was ultimately injured shortly thereafter from another low kick courtesy of the ‘Killa Gorilla’.

’The Spider’ crashed to the canvas immediately after absorbing the kick and began to clutch his knee. The bout was then called off by the referee and Cannonier was awarded the TKO victory.
