Anderson Silva, who holds several all-time UFC records, faces Uriah Hall in the main event of Saturday’s UFC Vegas 12 fight card. Silva, the former UFC middleweight champion, announced earlier this month that this bout would be his final walk to the octagon, but he seems to be vacillating a bit as fight night approaches. Whatever the case, when Silva retires, he will go down as one of the all-time greats in the sport of mixed martial arts.

Silva began his UFC career on a 16-fight winning streak, which is the longest unbeaten run in the organization’s history. If Silva scores a KO or TKO against Hall, he will take sole possession of the number one spot in knockout wins under the UFC banner. Right now Silva is tied with four other fighters in that statistic.

Silva hasn’t scored a knockout since he put Stephan Bonnar away with a knee to the body in 2012.

That win was the last victory in Silva’s record winning streak. Since then he has gone 1-6 with one no contest. Silva’s most recent win was a 2017 decision over Derek Brunson.

Hall, who is on a two-fight winning streak, is the favorite over Silva.

UFC Vegas 12 takes place at UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Before the fight takes place, here are some facts, stats and numbers for Hall vs. Silva.
