Can someone please breakdown the fight?

I know it only last 4 minutes but it would be interesting to know if Belfort or Anderson got any good shots in before the KO kick. Also who would have won the round in the judges minds?

No glove touch as Belfort takes the center of the Octagon and they circle tentatively. Nearly a minute and no one has thrown a strike as the crowd whistles and hoots a little before moving to outright booing. Still nothing thrown from either fighter until Belfort throws a leg kick that connects. Silva with a strike that misses and they continue to circle with nothing happening. Crowd gets on them again and boos a little more as Silva takes a little jog around the outside of the Octagon before rushing forward. Another leg kick from Belfort as the crowd chants for Vitor and Silva feints and fakes with his hands. Belfort rushes forward and catches Silva with a hard left hand before he takes Silva down! Silva with a knee up the middle as they scramble and they're throwing now! Belfort just misses a big left hand and Silva avoids it before he DROPS BELFORT WITH A FRONT KICK TO THE FACE AND IT'S OVER!!!
