Longtime UFC veteran Erick Silva snapped a two-fight losing streak in spectacular fashion on Friday night.
Fighting outside the Octagon for the first time since 2010, the 34-year-old Silva pulled off a highlight-reel come-from-behind win over Bellator veteran Nick Barnes in the main event of LFA 45. After getting dropped with a short left hook, Silva flipped the momentum with a nasty armbar from the bottom at 4:43 of the opening round. Watch video of Silva’s comeback victory above.
