Erick Silva didn’t let this one go to the judges.
In fact, he didn’t even let it get out of the first round, as Silva scored a quick submission victory over Jason High at UFC on FUEL TV: Nogueira vs. Werdum Saturday night.
Silva (15-3), coming off a decision loss to Jon Fitch, locked in an armbar and cranked, forcing High to tap at 1:11 of the opening five minutes.
“I tried to go to his back (for) the rear-naked choke,” Silva said. “I didn’t manage to do it, so I went to the armbar.”
Silva snapped a seven-fight win streak for High, who had not lost since a previous run in the UFC was ended by a defeat.
