Erick Silva is still young. They're rushing him too fast.

    He shouldn't be fighting Neil Magny yet. He should be fighting someone lower ranked like Cote/Burkmans of the division.

    UFC is doing a really poor job with building him up.

    yeah, he still has the mental bearing of a less experienced fighter but he's really at the back end of his prime. he needs to start beating the better guys or we're just talking about the guy who couldn't put it together.

    I swear this bs comes up every time he gets his ass kicked. He's not young and no longer a top prospect.

    Silva isn't improving as he moves along, fun fighter, but we saw the ceiling for him years ago.

    I don't know if anyone else may have had the same thought, but... does Erik look a little bit out of shape? He looks softer than usual to me.

    Given his experience in Jungle Fight (right?) and the UFC, he is neither young nor being rushed. You obviously don't realize he has hit his ceiling.
