Round 1 - A touch of gloves gets our first grand-prix semifinal started. Silva paws his jab. Cormier tries a low kick but is immediately countered and pushes into the cage before they restart. Cormier blasts and drops Silva with a huge right. Silva falls to the mat and Cormier swarms, but Silva quickly recovers, and Cormier calls for him to stand. Cormier paws his jab and then staggers Silva right a straight punch. He staggers him again with another. Silva shoots for the takedown, but Cormier sprawls and takes top position. He stands and throws some soft leg kicks. The ref calls for a standup. Cormier catches a body kick and then kicks Silva's other leg out from under him. Cormier throws more leg kicks but doesn't want to follow him to the mat. The crowd grows restless and wants a standup. The ref obliges. The fighters trade jabs. Silva lands a nice right. Silva tries a body punch but Cormier counters, drops him again, and then rains down to big hammerfists to cap off the upset. Huge win for Cormier.
