WATCH: It's Been 7 Years Since Anderson Silva's Front Kick
It's been 7 years, and I'll never get over how crazy this is to see. Probably the most iconic moment in MMA history, and for good reason. It's the picture of what makes MMA great... incredible technique mixed with beautiful violence. Lightning quick, out of nowhere and something no one had seen before or even since. Rogan's "HE FRONT KICKED HIM IN THE FACE!" adds to the moment so well too, simple and said with the excitement everyone watching felt as well.
Now, 7 years later we know both guys were probably on some... supplements. Vitor's UFC contract has expired, and he's stated his intends to retire, although we all know how that goes in the MMA world. Anderson Silva has seemingly lost the spark that once made him the best and most exciting individual in the sport, and is now facing an 4 year ban after failing a drug test in October.
