The good news for UFC welterweight Siyar Bahadurzada just keeps coming after his impressive knockout debut over the weekend.
Bahadurzada finally made his first appearance in the UFC on Saturday in Sweden, and his impact was felt immediately as he knocked out Paulo Thiago with one punch.
As Thiago rushed in looking for a clinch, Bahadurzada flattened him with a quick right hand that sent the Brazilian literally crashing to the mat.
The UFC rewarded the Afghan born fighter with a $50,000 ‘Knockout of the Night’ award.
The unfortunate part about the knockout however was that following the fight, Bahadurzada stated he believed he had a broken hand. He revealed that he may have actually first injured the hand in training, but never flinched about pulling out of the fight, and obviously it didn’t affect him too much with the one shot he landed to end Thiago’s nightLink
