Despite a rough start, Bruno Gustavo da Silva scores a highlight knockout.

With his UFC tenure potentially on the line, Bruno Gustavo da Silva got off on the completely wrong foot but managed to score a second-round finish of JP Buys to open up UFC Vegas 22.

In the contest’s opening strike, Silva struck Buys with a kick to the groin, forcing a pause to the action. The first minute didn’t even finish by the time Silva hit Buys with another foul, landing an eye poke.
