UFC 294 started with an exciting middleweight match between Sharaputdin Magomedov and Bruno Silva. Magomedov, known as ‘Shara Bullet,’ had a lot of hype around him due to his great record and not losing any fights. He’s also partially blind in one eye from an injury in Thailand. Silva, on the other hand, wanted to get back to winning.

In the first round, both fighters were aggressive, but Magomedov had some trouble finding his rhythm in boxing. However, in the second round, Magomedov took control and showed his impressive kickboxing skills. Silva couldn’t defend well against Magomedov’s kicks, and got hurt.

Silva did get takedowns on Magomedov but couldn’t do much from there. Magomedov was comfortable on his back, landing good elbows on Silva. The commentators thought he was winning the round even on his back.

In the third round, Bruno Silva got a quick takedown and controlled Magomedov for most of the time. Magomedov struggled with takedowns, and Silva had control for almost seven minutes. After the fight, Magomedov won by unanimous decision. But not everyone agreed with the decision.
