Bruno Silva made up for lost time in a big way in his first fight in almost two years with a nasty finish of Tyson Nam.
The flyweight matchup served as the second bout of Saturday’s UFC Las Vegas event. After Silva was showing a lot of movement in the first round with his dangerous counterpart, “Bulldog” absolutely floored Nam with a front kick to the face. Silva pounced on Nam before locking in a vicious rear naked choke to put Nam to sleep at 1:23 of the second round.

After dropping two straight decisions in 2020, Silva has finished three consecutive opponents — which also includes JP Buys and Victor Rodriguez. The 32-year-old’s finish of Rodriguez took place in May 2021, which was the most recent outing prior to Saturday’s memorable return.
With the loss, Nam’s octagon record drops to 3-4.
