The first finish of the night out of Abu Dhabi came in the third bout of the UFC 242 card, featuring a welterweight scrap between Muslim Salikhov and Nordine Taleb. It was a very slow-paced contest in the opening minutes, with a groin strike from Taleb temporarily stopping the action. However, in the closing minute of the contest, Salikhov landed a tremendous overhand right that planted Taleb down, and that was all she wrote.

With the win, Salikhov is now on a two-fight win streak, both of which coming by way of knockout.
