Erick Silva Calls Out Fellow Brazilian Demian Maia


Rising UFC welterweight Erick Silva is trying to take a move out of Chael Sonnen’s playbook and has called out a Brazilian fighter in the form of Demian Maia.

If booked the UFC’s welterweight division will be poised for a barn burner fit to headline or co-headline any Fight Night type event.

The younger Brazilian took to twitter to announce his aspirations to take on his fellow countryman and one of his divisions top athletes.

Translated: Demian, what do you think of getting back to the wins vs. a guy with a bad ground game and terrible takedown defense like me?

Erick Silva is coming off of a KO loss at the very ‘brick-like’ hands of Korean import,Dong Hyun Kim. While Demian Maia just notched his first loss at welterweight at the hands of Jake Shields on the same night.
