Tonight’s (July 8, 2016) The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23 Finale main card from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada started off with a bang, and it didn’t take long.

Following a UFC debut that ended with a split decision that left something to be desired, lightweight prospect Joaquim Silva was looking to make a statement by handing undefeated Andrew Holbrook his first-ever lost.

And he did so in emphatic fashion, hitting Holbrook with a perfect straight shot on the button to rock Holbrook before following him to the ground with vicious hammerfists that had him out cold in only 34 seconds.

It was a telling win that couldn’t have gotten the second UFC event of the packed International Fight Week started off with more of a bang.

Final Result: Joaquim Silva def. Andrew Holbrook via R1 TKO (ppunches, 0:34)
