Mike Pierce Looking For Brazilian Welterweight, Eric Silva Looking For Brazilian Hater | 1+1 = Fight In Brazil


A welterweight matchup between two top talents is reportedly in the works for the UFC’s return trip Brazil this summer.

While just in the preliminary stages, the two fighters and their camps are reportedly up to the task and willing to take each other on.

Mike Pierce recently came out on twitter and stated, “Are there any Brazilians at 170 or did they all bump up to 185? Looking for an easy fight. Wanted: no work ethic, no cardio, terrible striking and limited ground game. Brazilians, please send fight applications to Joe Silva.”

The fast rising Erick Silva is absolutely prepared, ready and able to accept the challenge of Pierce, as told by his manager to Tatame.com, “They’ve asked Erick where he would like to fight at and he said Sao Paulo. We’re just waiting for them to match him up. He is indeed confirmed to fight in Brazil. UFC told us that and any opponent is welcome, but those who say bad things about Brazil should pay and that’s Mike Pierce. It’s a match-up that pleases us. We’re waiting for UFC to say it’s OK.”

The UFC is expected to return to Brazil in June at a yet to be announced venue in Sao Paulo.

  2. danielrchargers says:

    Eric would SMASH him. and i mean SMMMMAAAAAASH him…with his fist… in his face. i wonder if hes a black belt in bjj

  3. Thom says:

    Erick please KO him like you do to everyone.

  4. Nick says:

    I think Erick takes this fight easily. Mike Pierce has seemed pretty douchey lately.

  5. Bloodhound says:

    So all Team Quest members are douchebags now? Only Sonnen can pull this shit off – quit it

  6. milos says:

    isnt eric a mw,or i had mixed things up…

  7. Dick Diaz says:

    lol even though its not original; its still pretty funny!

  8. Bigfan says:

    Pierce beat Koscheck according to FightMetric, and I thought that he won too. I hate the guy, but he is a fraction away from being a top-tier guy. Erick hasn’t beaten anyone of significance, so I say you’d have to favor Pierce although I would be pulling for a Silva victory.

  9. J.P says:

    UFC is getting similar to WWE in terms of self promoting…

  10. Yeas says:

    I think he just wants to market himself to be on the Silva/Sonnen card in Brazil. Why not? The bonus payouts will probably be worth more than his purse.

  11. true mma says:

    Stop mike, the ufc already has a stupid fuck named Sonnen, it doesn’t need another stupid wrestler who hates on BJJ.

  12. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Haha I thought it was kind of funny. It’s obviously a joke. Can any of you honestly think of a Brazilian fighter who has a terrible striking and a limited ground game? You probably can’t because there isn’t one. I’m surprised we don’t have more Brazilian champs in the UFC. They start training as soon as they pop out the womb. Erik and his manager are retarded if they took this seriously. He just wants to fight on the Brazil card people calm down.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Oh btw Mike will whup him just like he whupped Kos before judges robbed him. I don’t care what fight metric says. Kos doesn’t even know how to jab. If he would jab instead of holding his hand on his opponents head that would help him win decisively by leaps and bounds.

  13. true mma says:

    Mike is making himself look stupid. He needs to shut the fuck up and win a fight.
