Fantasy AnalysisVery nice. Taisumov suffered an eye poke in Round 1 and it was unclear if he could continue, but he toughed it out and put on a very impressive performance. The Chechen fighter is now 4-1 in the UFC, including wins over the talented Patrick and Tae Hyun Bang. The 26-year-old is an extremely fluid striker and he's another bright prospect who has joined the UFC recently from the Russian federation.
