Former M-1 Global middleweight champion, Bruno Silva has his third UFC victory since his debut just six months ago — stopping kickboxing talent, Jordan Wright with an early opening round knockout to open the preliminary card of UFC 269.

Silva, a native of Pairava, improved to 22-6 as a professional tonight courtesy of his triumph against Wright — adding the middleweight to a UFC winning run which includes prior knockout stoppages against both Andrew Sanchez, and compatriot, Wellington Turman.

Eventually clinching with Wright after the opening minute mark after taking a couple notable kicks, Silva clipped the former with a right hook on the exit of the clinch, before rushing forward and dropping the San Antonio native. Following a slew of subsequent ground strikes, Silva eventually forced Herb Dean to step in and halted the bout.
