This Saturday night, Siyar "The Great" Bahadurzada finally gets to make his UFC debut against Paulo Thiago when the UFC comes to the Ericsson Globe Arena in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden for UFC on Fuel TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva.
Many have anticipated the US debut of Siyar ever since he was signed under the Strikeforce banner, but for one reason or another, Siyar was never able to land a fight for the promotion. Nevertheless, Siyar will bring in an outstanding 16 finishes with just four decision victories inside the Octagon, including four wins by a form of choke, one win by a heel hook, a submission by strikes, seven TKO wins and three knockout wins.
Now, one might be willing to expend the energy looking up Siyar's record, but Yours Truly would rather talk about Siyar's greatest hits thus far because this man's trail of blood, sweat, tears and hunger is one that needs to be shared with the world.
With that in mind, let's take a closer look at just who Siyar Bahadurzada really is.
