There is no empirical evidence to suggest that Erick Silva is going to beat Fitch.
Da ****? Brenneman wasn't winning that fight at all. he got the vast majority of his takedowns stuffed and the ones he did get, Silva got up straight away and was out-striking him.
As for the scrubs comment, yes they were both lesser opponents but thats the story of Fitch's career. he has two good wins over Diego and Alves. the rest are scrubs but yet Fitch was hyped as the definitive #2 WW in the world.
I just don't get it.
