Jon Fitch meets Erick Silva in a classic matchup of an aging veteran meeting a young, up and coming fighter. Fitch was once considered a consensus No. 2 welterweight, but is now fighting to save his career at UFC 153.
Silva received quite a bit of hype after entering the UFC and has passed every test that's been placed in front of him. But Fitch is an entirely different animal.
Fitch feels he is in a must-win situation and that's always dangerous going into a fight. Either Fitch is going to come out and look the best we've ever seen him or his career may continue its downward spiral if Silva can walk away with the victory.
This bout has received almost as much attention as the main event fights and I'm sure this is the 1,000,000th dissection of this fight.But these are a few things fans need to keep their eyes on during the fight.
