Middleweight prospect Bruno Silva kept things rolling earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 16, 2021) at UFC Vegas 40 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the knockout finisher stopped veteran contender Andrew Sanchez via third-round TKO (punches).
Sanchez was in control for almost the entirety of this fight as he used pressure and takedowns to subdue Silva’s dangerous striking. Unfortunately, Sanchez also landed a few illegal strikes below the belt that seemed to really bother Silva. Luckily for the Brazilian, Sanchez tired in the third round and it allowed Silva to unload a barrage of strikes on the feet that were simply too much for Sanchez to handle.
