UFC Erick Silva

For the second UFC show in a row, there were only two finishes on a 12-bout fight card. Wanna see one of them?

On Saturday, welterweight Erick Silva (pictured) proved that letting go of a single-leg takedown attempt when you’re getting clobbered in the head might be a good idea.

Silva quickly, and easily, disposed of Takenori Sato with a barrage of bombs to the dome last night.

The official time on the stoppage came at just 52 seconds into the opening round.

The KO earned Silva an extra $50,000 for “Performance of the Night.”

Hey, Sato, let go! LET GO!

UFC Fight Night 36 took place inside Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.
