Watch video from the boxing match between UFC legend Anderson Silva and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Several MMA stars are looking to boxing for big paydays, and Anderson Silva is one of them. Saturday night in Mexico, the UFC legend took on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, who missed weight for their contest.

Silva, now 46-years-old, only had one win in his last nine UFC fights. He also faced a much younger and significantly more experienced former champion boxer. Saturday though, was completely different. Silva actually impressed and slowly broke down Chavez, who seemed to tire out and possibly break mentally as the fight wore on. Silva landed shots, and even flashed some of his trademark showboating too.

Watch highlights from the boxing match, and check out a snippet from our play-by-play of our contest below:

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs. Anderson Silva – Round 8 (Final Round)

Chavez should have some sort of urgency here. Good jabbing from Silva. Uppercut on the inside by The Spider. Body shot again by Chavez. And another one. Chavez complaining about something. I don’t know what happened. Oh actually they’re looking at the cut on Chavez but they’ll continue now. Triple body shot by Chavez Jr. Uppercut and a jab by Silva. Chavez finally letting his hands go and frankly he’s winning this round. But he lost the fight, surely! Anything else is a robbery. 77-75 Silva.

Official result: 77-75, 75-77, 77-75 for your winner by split decision…Anderson Silva!

Anderson Silva sure looks comfortable in a boxing ring
