This fight was brought to our attention by Leland Roling at Bloody Elbow who is doing a great job of putting out solid scouting reports on MMA fighters from around the world. These are the kind of fighters you’ll see [hopefully] coming up through the ranks over the next couple of years.
So watch out for their names – this fighter is Erick Silva, he’s out of Brazil and fights welterweight. He throws a terrific body slam at about 45 seconds in the video and finishes with a solid knockout. That’s exciting stuff. That’s the kind of fighter we need alot more of in mixed martial arts.
So which organization in MMA will give him a shot?
