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.
