It was a unanimous decision loss for Silva at the O2 Arena in London. That is Silva’s first decision loss since 2000.
In his post fight interview Silva called the judges decision “total corruption” and Ed Soares, Silva’s Manager, called for an immediate rematch.
“(Bisping) did show a lot of heart. Hats off to him,” Ed Soares posted on his Instagram. “I don’t agree with the decision but tell me what you think of this solution. Rematch in Brazil, if (Silva wins) we have the trilogy in Vegas?”
May 14th is the Scheduled date for the UFC’s return to Brazil.
