The first two rounds were marked with inactivity and Anderson Silva was saved by the bell after being knocked down at the end of the third. Uriah Hall stopped Anderson Silva at 1 minute and 24 seconds of the fourth round via TKO.

I don't know. First, I go back home and go see with my team and everything. Let's see. Because it's tough to say it's my last or not. This is my air. This is what I do for my entire life and with my heart. Let's go see.
