New, comments

It didn’t take long for Canadian Nordine Taleb to give his home crowd something to cheer about earlier tonight (Sat., Dec. 16, 2017) at UFC on FOX 26 from inside Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada, when the 36-year-old veteran finished English striker Danny Roberts via first-round knockout (head kick and punches).

Taleb only needed 59 seconds to move in on “Hot Chocolate” and blast him with a head kick along the cage. Roberts stumbled back into the fence, hung on for dear life, and allowed Taleb to land a beautiful right forearm that put the nail in the coffin. Taleb landed on more shot before the fight was called via knockout.

With this performance, Taleb improves his 2017 record to 2-1. The talented veteran isn’t getting any younger these days, but he still packs serious power in most of his strikes. Look for Taleb to stay busy and step back into the Octagon early next year after competing for less than one minute this weekend.
