By Lewis Mckeever:
The fans expected fireworks in the Paulo Thiago/Siyar Bahadurzada match up and they received no less, Bahadurzada left the Ericsson Globe Arena with a bang. After clobbering Paulo Thiago into unconsciousness after just 41 seconds of action, conversing with Kenny Florian in the post fight interview, the Afghanistan native feared he may have entered the contest with a broken hand. He claimed that he was virtually unable to make a fist while warming up before the bout, but that didn’t stop the seasoned brawler from putting an abrupt end to Paulo Thiago’s night. Siyar recently confirmed through twitter that his right hand has not sustained any serious damage:
GOOD NEWS: My right hand is not broken! An x-ray confirmed it earlier today! RT this If you wanna see me fightsoon again in the @ufc!

Stacking up an impressive 17 finishes in 21 victories and showing no signs of the octagon jitters in his UFC debut, I have high expectations for “Siyar The Great”. Who would you like to see the Afghan born fighter face next in the shark tank of welterweight talent?
