Anderson Silva gets submitted in the opening round at ONE: ‘Revolution’
Anderson Silva competed in MMA for the first time since 2018 at ONE: ‘Revolution’. The Brazilian lasted less than three minutes.
That is how long it took fellow Brazilian Marcus Almeida to submit him with a north south choke:

There were extenuating circumstances. ‘Buchecha’ is one of the greatest submission specialists to have ever stepped inside an MMA cage and has won world championships in grappling on multiple occasions.
Silva comes from a kickboxing background but when he got taken down in the first 15 seconds by Almeida there was only going to be one outcome…
Could we have got our first glimpse of a future heavyweight champion?
