Silva did look like he gave up on the first round, and decided to save his energy and just make it to the second round with as little damage as possible.

You can see Silva's concern when he was walking to his corner at the end of the first round. Silva showed immense mental control in this last fight, instead of panicking and going the, "I will KO this wrestler before he takes me down route", he changed plans and went to a very methodical approach to keep the fight standing with his grappling.
