Gabriel was winning early on, but then his opponent started to pick up some momentum. He landed several body kicks on Silva. But then in a heated exchange, Vincent landed a heavy spinning back fist that rocked Gabriel pretty hard. He got hit by lots of follow-up shots.

The referee came in and started the count and stopped at eight and allowed Silva to continue the fight. But that didn’t last long as Vincent landed amazing shots and knocked out Silva with just 15 seconds left on the clock. The knockout was very brutal as Gabriel Silva fell folded in half and fell flat on the mat and was unconscious for a brief moment before he gained consciousness.
After the fight, Gabriel Silva’s opponent Vincent Familari appreciated Silva and said that he is a good fighter.
“I knew that I had to stay on him, I couldn’t let him recover,” Familari said in his post-fight interview. “I mean, the guy’s good. He could easily beat me, but God was with us on this victory, He blessed us. Much respect to my opponent, his camp, and everybody else, but we did it. We pulled through.”
Anderson was present in his son’s corner and was cornering him for his fights. He ran pretty quickly into the ring and looked out for his son who was unconscious.
