In his first appearance since submitting Brandon Thatch back at UFC 196 last year, UFC middleweight knockout artist Siyar Bahadurzada made a memorable return to the cage earlier today (Sat., Sept. 2, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 115 live on UFC Fight Pass from inside the Ahoy Rotterdam arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The 33-year-old veteran put an absolute hurting on Australian prospect Rob Wilkinson with a devastating second-round TKO. Bahadurzada unloaded all hell on Wilkinson as the 26-year-old stumbled around the Octagon. The Afghan fighter jumped on top and rained heavy shots until the referee jumped in for the stoppage.

With this win, Bahadurzada reenters the mix at both 170 and 185 pounds. If he can stay healthy, Bahadurzada is powerful enough to do some damage up the divisional ladder, evident by his monstrous finish in Rotterdam.
