Weidman and Rousey retain titles at UFC 168

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chris Weidman defended his UFC middleweight title when Anderson Silva apparently broke his left leg on a kick in the second round, ending UFC 168 with a horrific injury Saturday night.

Weidman (11-0) quietly celebrated his victory while medical personnel tended to Silva (33-6), whose left shin bent grotesquely while landing a kick on Weidman's left leg 1:16 into the round.

Weidman, who earned his belt with an upset victory over the long-reigning champion in July, also dominated the first round of the rematch.

Ronda Rousey retained her bantamweight title in the UFC's year-end event, submitting Miesha Tate with a third-round arm bar. Rousey then walked away from her bitter rival's offer of a post-fight handshake, earning ferocious boos from the MGM Grand Garden crowd.
