UFC announcer Bruce Buffer danced with Bruno Silva after the Brazilian’s UFC Vegas 29 win.

A middleweight bout between Silva and Wellington Turman was the second fight that took place on the main card portion of the UFC Vegas 29 (June 19, 2021) event.

The fight saw Silva secure a vicious first-round KO victory over Turman. Silva was in top position and was in Turman’s full guard as both fighters grappled and looked to advance their positions on the mat.

Silva mixed in ground and pound with his grappling and caught Turman with a few thunderous punches to the head.

Bruno Silva’s precise and powerful punches helped him put away his compatriot. The referee waved off the fight as Turman was clearly unconscious.

Following this, Silva proceeded to get up, walk to the other side of the octagon, approach the fence, and break out a few dance moves.

Silva’s dancing didn’t stop there, however, as he appeared to ask UFC announcer Bruce Buffer to dance with him.

Buffer had entered the octagon after the fight to announce the official verdict and in response to Silva requesting him to dance, Buffer too broke out a few rather impressive dance moves.
