Bruno Silva captured another gnarly knockout finish earlier tonight (Sat., May 22, 2021) at UFC Vegas 27 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the Brazilian power puncher stopped flyweight counterpart Victor Rodriguez just 60 seconds into the first round.
Silva wasted no time coming out and swinging hard. He connected with a flush knee inside that caught Rodriguez to the body and seemed to hurt him bad. Silva immediately rushed in and landed a brutal right hand that sent Rodriguez flying to the canvas. A few more punches on the ground was all that was needed for Silva to claim the fast knockout stoppage.

After beginning his UFC career at 0-2 (1 NC) Silva has finally found his footing in the growing 125-pound division. This was an absolutely vicious stoppage and one that should land Silva an even bigger fight his next time out.
