STOCKHOLM -- This is the UFC on FUEL 2 live blog for Paulo Thiago vs. Siyar Bahadurzada, a welterweight bout on tonight's UFC event from the Ericsson Globe Arena.
Thiago, who has won lost two his last three fights, will square off against Bahadurzada, who has won six straight fights and will be making his UFC debut, on the main card.
Check out the live blog below.
Round 1: For the purposes of this liveblog, we'll be referring to Siyar by his first name only. No way I'm typing out that last name over and over again. It's a disaster waiting to happen.
Now that that's out of the way, onto the fight. It's a staring match for the first 30 seconds, with each man waiting for the other to go first. Thiago comes charging in behind a looping right hand and Siyar counters with a right uppercut on his way back. Thiago goes limp and falls face-first into the mat. He's out cold. Siyar takes a brief walk around the cage, then returns to stand over his fallen foe with arms raised. Not the classiest move, but he pulls it back by kneeling behind him until he regains consciousness and is helped to his feet.
