Claudio Henrique da Silva vs. Nordine Taleb added to UFC Fight Night 130 in Liverpool

The card continues to fill for the UFC’s return to England in May.

A welterweight matchup is the latest addition to UFC Fight Night 130, with Brazil’s Claudio Henrique da Silva (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) facing France’s Nordine Taleb (14-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC). The card takes place May 27 at Echo Arena in Liverpool and airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Henrique da Silva returns to action for the first time since November 2014 – spending more than three years on the shelf battling injuries. “Hannibal” lost his pro debut in 2007 but then rattled off 11 consecutive wins, including UFC victories over Leon Edwards and Brad Scott, before being forced to the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Taleb was in action most recently in December, scoring an impressive 59-second knockout victory over Danny Roberts. The result was Taleb’s second consecutive UFC win, and he stands at 3-1 in his past four octagon appearances.

With the addition to the card, UFC Fight Night 130 now includes:

  • Stephen Thompson vs. Darren Till
  • Neil Magny vs. Gunnar Nelson
  • Tom Breese vs. Daniel Kelly
  • Trevor Smith vs. Elias Theodorou
  • Brad Scott vs. Salim Touahri
  • Claudio Henrique da Silva vs. Nordine Taleb
  • Arnold Allen vs. Mads Burnell
  • Makwan Amirkhani vs. Jason Knight
  • Eric Spicely vs. Darren Stewart
  • Lina Lansberg vs. Gina Mazany
