Claudio Silva

The second bout of the UFC Liverpool main card occurred at welterweight, where Brazil’s Claudio Silva took on Canada’s Nordine Taleb.

It was a dominant win for the Brazilian, who applied a face-crushing rear-naked choke in the first round, coaxing out the tap as a result.

Remarkably, this is Silva’s first win since 2014, as he has not fought since he defeated Leon Edwards by decision at UFC Fight Night 56. With this impressive win, he improves 11-1 overall, and 3-0 in the UFC.

Taleb, meanwhile, is now 14-5 overall. He returns to the loss column after a first-round knockout of Danny Roberts.
