No contest? Erick Silva to appeal Yancy Medeiros loss at UFC 212

MMA: UFC 212-Silva vs Medeiros Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight veteran Erick Silva will appeal his technical knockout loss to Yancy Medeiros, which took place at the UFC 212 pay-per-view (PPV) event earlier this month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Watch the video highlights here.

“It’s the second time a referee made a bad call for an Erick Silva fight in Brazil,” manager Gilberto Faria told MMA Fighting. “We definitely need CABMMA (Comissão Atlética Brasileira de MMA) to take a deep look on this matter.”

The first time happened here.

After a competitive first round, Silva was stung by Medeiros in the second stanza, but appeared to get his bearings just as soon as he crashed to the canvas. Nevertheless, referee Eduardo Herdy called a stop to the action at the 2:01 mark.

Faria will reportedly appeal the decision early next week in search of a “no contest.”
