Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The ghosts of Anderson Silva vs. James Irvin came alive Saturday night at UFC 196. Tristar welterweight Nordine Taleb put his own spin on The Spider's famous knockout, catching a second-round kick from Erick Silva then sending the Brazilian crashing to the canvas with a textbook counter right.

One more follow-up right sealed the deal for Taleb, who picked up his fourth win in five UFC appearances. Catch video of the knockout below.
