Submission! Claudio Silva squeezes a win out of Nordine Taleb at UFC Liverpool

After a four year break from UFC competition, Claudio Silva just made quick work of Nordine Taleb.


The once mocked neck crank has made another fight finishing appearance, this time at UFC Liverpool in the Claudio Silva vs. Nordine Taleb match.

No one was giving Silva much of a chance in this fight after a four year absence from the cage, but he proved the doubters wrong by taking control on the ground, forcing Taleb to give up his back, and then squeezing in an over the chin choke at 4:30 of round one.

Claudio Silva moves to 12-1 MMA, 3-0 in the UFC. Nordine Taleb drops to 14-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC.
