UFC Fight Night 36 will feature the return of Erick Silva against Nate Loughran in Jaragua do Sul on Feb. 15.
Silva (14-4, 1 no-contest), who has fought five of his six UFC bouts in his native country, looks to get back in the win column after suffering a second-round

Today, I wouldn't even consider it for top five...

Joe Silva’s Shoes: What’s next for the UFC Fight Night 33 winners?
UFC Fight Night 33 is an event that will be etched in history for quite some time due to the dramatic main event between Mark Hunt (9-8-1 MMA, 4-2-1 UFC) and Antonio Silva (18-5-1 MMA, 2-2-1 UFC) that ended in a majority draw.
