See you later: Antonio Silva did a number on Fedor Emelianenko's eye and career.

After an upset in the first quarterfinal at the Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ on Saturday night, the main event, another quarterfinal between Fedor Emelianenko and Antonio “Big Foot” Silva, was ready to go.

In the first round, the pair traded shots but in the second round it was all Big Foot.

Silva avoided a Fedor overhand right and brought him to the ground where he continued to pound and pound away at Fedor’s face. Towards the end of the round, Fedor tried a leg lock but Big Foot just looked at him like he was crazy.

But the damage has been done as the referee stopped the fight because Fedor couldn’t see out of his right eye giving Big Foot the TKO win. With the win, Silva will face the winner of the quarterfinal between Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum.

After the fight, Fedor said in an interview that this could have been his last fight in his illustrious career. That interview is below the video of the second round beatdown.
