As you’ve probably heard by now, Silva handed long time contender Josh Kosheck his fifth straight defeat, by catching the welterweight with an opening round, guillotine choke. The fight ending submission came not long after Silva appeared to stun the powerful wrestler with some hard shots.
The UFC has posted Silva’s post-fight interview, as well as highlights of the finish, which you can watch below. With the victory, Silva pushed his overall record to 18-5 and it marked the first time he’s won consecutive bouts in the UFC.
