Siyar Bahadurzada made quite a splash this past weekend at UFC on Fuel 2 when he knocked Paulo Thiago out cold in just 42 seconds. In his post-fight interview, Bahadurzada mentioned that he had hurt his right hand (the one he used to KO Thiago) 10 days before the fight, and feared it was broken. He apparently was barely able to make a fist while warming up in the cage. It didn't stop him from putting a hurting on Thiago though, and he got some more good news from his doctor today:

Bahadurzada will be a dangerous foe for any UFC welterweight, and it appears that he'll be back in the cage sooner than most thought. I said that he should fight Erick Silva (a previously scheduled fight) next, but forgot that Silva is already booked against Charlie Brenneman at UFC on FX 3 on June 8th. So who would you like to see Siyar face next?
