You should always protect yourself in a fight, but faking a show of good sportsmanship is a cheap way to try and win. Luckily for Taleb, he was prepared for it and was able to finish his opponent with a fantastic one punch knockout. The victory is the biggest to date in Nordine Taleb’s MMA career.

The “TUF” Alum now has four wins in five UFC appearances. He will look to continue his climb up the welterweight ladder by facing a ranked opponent. Silva meanwhile, has now lost 2 fights in a row. After showing promise early in his UFC career, he could be next in line to receive his walking papers.
