Widely considered one of the top welterweight prospects in the UFC, Erick Silva is still searching for that key victory that places him among the elite, following a second round knockout loss to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC Fight Night 29. He’s traded wins and losses since his debut in August of 2011, including spectacular showings in victory against Luis Ramos, Charlie Brenneman, and Jason High. Losses include a disqualification against Carlo Prater in a fight he was clearly on the way to winning, and a hard-fought decision loss to Jon Fitch.
Current welterweight King of Pancrase, Takenori Sato, makes his UFC debut on the strength of going undefeated since October of 2010, holding a record of 8-0-2 during that span. His most notable victory came in March of 2012 when he earned a unanimous decision over current UFC roster member, Kiichi Kunimoto at Pancrase: Progress Tour 3.
