UFC on FUEL TV 2 results: Siyar Bahadurzada knocks out Paulo Thiago in 42 seconds

The UFC on FUEL TV 2 event taking place today (Sat., April 14, 2012) in Stockholm, Sweden, featured the long awaited Octagon debut of Siyar Bahadurzada, as he was taking on Paulo Thiago in welterweight action.

Bahadurzada, known as "Siyar The Great," has been fighting professionally since 2002 and amassed a 20-4-1 record, including a six-fight win streak, before finally getting his chance to shine on the brightest stage possible.

And boy did he make the most of it.

Not only did Bahadurzada post a knockout victory that will likely earn him "Knockout of the Night" honors, he did so in just 42 seconds against one of the toughest opponents in the 170-pound division.

Not much to say about this one, folks. Thiago came pushing forward with a winging right hand and Siyar was ready for it with a swift counter punch that landed short and clean.

It was enough to put the Brazilian's lights out, just like that.

Even more impressive was the fact that Bahadurzada may have entered the bout with a broken hand, as he revealed to Kenny Florian in the post-fight interview. It didn't stop him from using it to plant Thiago and post the first win of his young UFC career.

At 27-years-old, the sky's the limit. Anyone know what to do with him next?
