UFC welterweight Erick Silva is not pleased with his performance. He took on Neil Magny at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night: Saskatoon and ended up losing via split decision.
The Brazilian fighter took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the fight and hinted that he went into the fight with an injury. If he would have beaten Magny it would have been his third straight win in the UFC.
With the loss, Silva falls to 6-5 in the UFC.
Here’s what he had to say about this performance:
“Honestly, I didn’t like my performance. I was defeated. I’m embarrassed with my performance, my body. I know I’m way more than this Erick that fought last night. My main mistake was having insisted on fighting, and put not only my head at stake but also my coaches’ and doctors’ who did the best they could to at least get me to the fight. It wasn’t a good month for me, but no one has to know, it’s no one’s problem. I had a ridiculous performance and deserved to lose. I paid the price for it.”
“The only thing left for me is to guarantee that the next time I step inside that Octagon again I will be 100 percent physically, no injuries, and with a full training camp,” he wrote. “Otherwise, I’ll do like everyone does, and cancel the fight.”
