Hoping to get rid of Fitches name value with a dangerous striker lacking a mainstream name?

Ill be rooting for Silva but I think its a bit to soon to be facing a guy like Jon Fitch, I say Fitch takes the decision

I think Silva is future champion material, he's still relatively young, but this is probably too big of a jump in competition, too soon for him.

Like Hughes/GSP 1. Although GSP was winning he wasn't strong mentally and tapped without knowing there was 1 second left till the end of the round



Agreed, although I feel that's truly the moment where GSP went from good prospect to future star. Hopefully this can be Silva's moment.

I wouldn't say a huge step for Silva...this is going to be a tough fight for Fitch. Erick Silva and Rory are the next big things in the 170 division.
