Erick Silva Returning At UFC 156, No Opponent Known Yet

Erick Silva didn’t have the kind of performance he was hoping for earlier this year against Jon Fitch in Brazil.

So, Silva informed the UFC that he wanted a return match as soon as possible. The promotion has agreed, according to a recent interview Silva gave with Tatame.

I enjoyed my family a bit in my time of rest after the fight, but unlike the other times, have resumed training well in advance. I asked my manager a fight as soon as possible, I want to keep my ballast training.

Silva said he will be competing at UFC 156, but has no opponent lined up yet. He added that an opponent should be known “in a week or two.”
