Every fighter has their go-to moves, especially specialists within certain martial arts disciplines. Their own signature styles can lead to spectacular finishes. Whether it’s a scary-good rear-naked choke that fighters just can’t seem to avoid once going to the ground or crazy power in a straight left hand that has dropped even granite-chinned fighters with ease, each fighter has a particular finishing move or sequence. Moves that have stuck in fan’s minds and come to define and describe their careers within the cage.

For UFC 269 we will take a look at some fighters with only a few (5 or less) fights in the UFC, rather than those fighters that are long-time UFC veterans with a bunch of finishes with the promotion.

Bruno Silva is a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil Season 3, which he competed on back in 2014.

Silva is also a former M-1 Global Middleweight champion. Out of Bruno’s 18 career finishes 12 of them have come in the first round.

One of Bruno’s most impressive fights, outside of his 4th round finish to win the middleweight championship in M-1 Global, was his most recent fight, a 3rd round comeback finish against Andrew Sanchez.

Bruno Silva’s hands are very dangerous and he is never out of a fight. Fans should be on the lookout for Bruno and make absolutely certain not to miss a moment of his fight at UFC 269 against Jordan Wright.
