Erick Silva vs Charlie Brenneman full fight video highlights from UFC on FX 3

With little more than one minute of experience against Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)-caliber competition in two trips inside the Octagon, there were a few questions about Erick Silva heading into his Welterweight fight with Charlie Brenneman last night (June 8, 2012) in the UFC on FOX 3 co-main event. There was not doubt that "Indio" was talented, but many mixed martial arts (MMA) fans and pundits alike wanted to see how he could handle a strong, wrestling-minded opponent who would try and put him on his back and keep him there for an extended period. We now have our answer. Despite his best efforts, Brenneman could not keep down the 27-year-old Brazilian because he couldn't get him to the ground consistently in the first place. Silva kept his balance for the most part and forced the referee to restart them when he thwarted Brenneman's attempts alongside the cage; in fact, he reversed a takedown late in the opening frame to set up the eventual fight-ending submission finish. It took more than one minute, but it was an impressive performance nonetheless.
