Bruno Silva


Drops UFC debut
October 5, 2019
Silva lost to Khalid Taha via submission (arm-triangle choke) at 3:00 of Round 3 at UFC 243 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.
It was a disappointing setback for the Brazilian in his UFC debut. Making a concerted effort to lean on his wrestling game in his first fight with the company, Silva registered a whopping 11 takedown attempts in 13 minutes of action. He was successful on just two of those attempts and struggled during the striking exchanges between the two men. The 29-year-old will probably get another shot with the company, but there's nothing to see here.
