UFC 269 video: Bruno Silva lights Jordan Wright up with punches for fast knockout

Bruno Silva is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC’s middleweight division.

“Blindado” scored his third straight knockout in as many UFC appearances with a first-round TKO of Jordan Wright on the preliminary portion of UFC 269 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Watch Silva’s brutally fast finish above.

Wright came out aggressive, looking to take the fight to Silva early with a flurry of strikes. He backed Silva up against the fence and looked to attack with clinch knees, but Silva punched his way out of trouble and landed a pair of winging hooks that visibly rocked Wright. With Wright stumbling backwards, Silva followed up with more heavy punches, landing accurate ground-and-pound and forcing the stoppage less than 90 seconds into the opening round.

Silva, a former M-1 middleweight champion, is now 3-0 in the UFC. Overall, he has won six straight fights, all by KO/TKO.
