Li Jingliang is back in the win column.

The UFC welterweight stopped Muslim Salikhov on the main card of Saturday’s UFC on ABC 3 at UBS Arena in Elmont, N.Y. The official stoppage came at the 4:38 mark of Round 2.

Jingliang (19-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) looked to be behind on the scorecards, as Salikhov (18-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) had a good amount of success in the first round. However, “The Leech” came back in the second when he wobbled Salikhov with a right hand and then patiently picked his shots to get the stoppage win.
