Erick Silva is coming off a dominant first round submission win over Mike Rhodes recently at “UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Dollaway” in December, and is looking to build momentum with a potential win over Ben Saunders at “UFC Fight Night 62” on March 21st.
Saunders won’t be an easy win however, as he is coming off a submission win over Chris Heatherly in his return bout to the Octagon back in August of 2014. The submission win was the first omoplata submission in UFC history.
“Saunders is a big guy, which is good. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. My game plan is to take him down and submit him. I’m training a lot of jiu-jitsu. His legs are long, I’m sure I’ll twist them. It’s going to be a good and quick fight. I’m more focused and training more. I’m aggressive as a tiger and calm enough to wait for the right opportunity.”
