Erick Silva Returns at UFC 156
After defeat in Rio, Erick Silva returns to the Octagon at UFC 156 in February
Erick Silva is another Brazilian on the card of UFC 156, which will be held in Las Vegas on Feb. 2. As the magazine's website published the "tatami", the welterweight capixaba is confirmed at the event, but still has no opponent set. The other names that will represent the country are the featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, who will try to defend his belt against Frankie Edgar in the main event, and Rogerio Nogueira, who faces Rashad Evans.
After a fulminant start in Ultimate, Erick lost his last fight to American Jon Fitch at UFC Rio III, on October 13, by unanimous decision. The duel was awarded as the best of the night, and each took home the equivalent of $ 140 thousand.
