Erick Silva Issues A Challenge To Fellow Brazilian Demian Maia

Erick Silva and Demian Maia didn’t have their UFC Fight Night 29 bouts go the way they hoped. Dong Hyun Kim knocked Silva out and Maia took a split-decision loss to Jake Shields. With that, Silva issued a challenge via Twitter.

“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?”

Maia is yet to respond. Before the recent defeat, Maia had taken three wins since dropping to welterweight.

Silva is 3-3 for the UFC and that includes a pair of Submission of the Night honors. Earlier in the year, Silva defeated Jason High.

UFC Fight Night 29 was October 9 and came from the Ginasio José Correa in Brazil.
