It all went down in Las Vegas as the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Chris and Silva faced off ... with Silva -- considered the best MMA fighter in the history of the sport -- defending his seven-year stronghold on the middleweight title.

But Silva was fighting cocky -- with his hands down -- and by the 2nd round it caught up to him ... when Weidman caught the Brazilian with a nasty left hook. Silva instantly went down and Weidman was crowned the new champ.

Who'd have thunk it?
