CM Punk and Daniel Bryan revisited a pivotal moment in UFC 148’s main event between Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva. In the second round of the UFC main event, Sonnen missed a wild spinning backfist and tumbled to the mat. Anderson Silva then blasted Sonnen’s chest with a knee that could kill a baby rhino (lifted from twitter – heh). Silva followed up with punches for the TKO win to end the blazing hot feud. See both moments after the jump.

On the following night in the RAW main event, CM Punk played Chael Sonnen and recreated the spinning backfist. Daniel Bryan ducked under the spinning backfist and then delivered a brutal running knee to Punk’s chest that would have made the UFC middleweight champion proud. The following gif of both moments was originally posted on Sherdog. Enjoy.
