UFC on Fuel TV 10 results recap: Erick Silva vs Jason High fight review and analysis

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

How did Erick Silva get back to his winning ways? Find out below.

Two talented welterweights clashed last night (June 8, 2013) as rising stud Erick Silva took on returning grappler Jason High on the UFC on FUEL TV 10 main card in Fortaleza, Brazil.

Silva was facing his third tough wrestler in a row, splitting his previous fights against both Charlie Brenneman and Jon Fitch respectively. The big question heading into this fight was, "Did he learn anything?"

From his dominant performance, it was obvious that he had.

High, not fearing the takedown, opened with some kicks, winging with a head and body kick, but Silva caught the last one and forced a scramble. When High exposed his back, Silva leaped onto it and immediately began working to make something big happen.

Silva was too high up, however, and High hunched over trying to shake him off like a nuisance, but Silva stayed put, wrapping High up in a near inverted triangle. With High forced to deal with the potential triangle, Silva latched onto High's free arm and extended it, putting too much pressure on the joint and forcing "The Kansas City Bandit" to tap out.

For Jason High, this was obviously not how he was expecting his UFC return to play out, but he hopefully learned a harsh lesson about exposing your back to top level UFC opposition. In all honesty, the bout was too short to really take anything from it. High did a good job of trying to shake Silva off, but he just couldn't do it and once Silva tightened his grip, he was in for a very uncomfortable ride.
