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.
