Erick Silva: If Fitch Stands With Me It Will Be Suicide | UFC NEWS

October 5, 2012 11:41 am

“Fitch has to speak up because they stand with me is suicide for him. Charlie (Brenneman) also said that he wanted to take me to the ground and eventually finalized. I think I forget that I am a black belt in jiu-jitsu.”

The fast rising welterweight, Erick Silva, recently told Brazilian media outlet,, that if his UFC 153 opponent, Jon Fitch decides to make their fight a stand up battle he will lose.

For more years than I care to count, Jon Fitch has been regarded as one of the top 170 pound fighters in the world. While he may have hit a recent skid in his road to the top, Fitch should still be regarded as a dangerous opponent.

That being said, who ya got next weekend? Will Silva continue to impress or will the Fitch of old return?
