Silva and Le are both dangerous strikers and they're great on the ground. Despite their skill on the ground, this fight won’t go to there. These two men are warriors that love to battle.
To the uninitiated, when fighters are working from their guard, MMA can be boring. Everyone, however, understands when fists come into the equation.
Silva’s fight with Le will be another in a long line of exciting battles that make “The Axe Murderer” one of the most beloved fighters ever.
Although Silva lost on a devastating KO to Chris Leben back in July, the fight wasn’t that long ago. That means Silva shouldn’t be too out of shape.

If he hasn’t been training, it won’t take him long to get back in shape so that he can begin to focus on how to fight Le.
Whether or not Silva has been training, it's perfect timing for him to get back in the octagon before any ring-rust sets in.
