    Cliffs:

    - Says he had an excellent camp;
    - Says he doesn't understand why he gassed so bad, considering he felt prepared for a 5 round fight;
    - Says Matt is one tough dude and gives him props;
    - Says he has no place facing elite level guys for now, but won't give up just yet;
    - Says he has no injuries and is feeling great;
    - Says his game needs improvements and he's in talks to go train in the US (didn't reveal where exactly), but still as a Team Nogueira athlete.

    I would translate the whole interview but I'm on my phone at LAX. Bye, 'Murica!

    I'm not big on the guy but this is a very humble observation of the reality of his situation. Bravo Mr. Silva I wish you the best. Hopefully the UFC will stop trying to push him so hard.

    I don't see excuses. Erick Silva can't be Brazilian... He will now be Eric Silver.

    I wouldn't call Matt an elite fighter but great respect shown none of the less.

    I see nothing wrong with letting him wreck some lower tier fighters at WW. It's the most stacked division, I'm sure they can find an entertaining match up that's winnable with 91 fighters at WW.

    Props to Silva. Hope he comes back strong (with cardio) and wrecks some guys

    This man is no true Brazilian. He just betrayed his entire country.

    Glad to see Silva isn't making any excuses for his loss, now if only his nuthuggers would follow his example.

    Guy's entertaining as hell so looking forward to him polishing his skills and improving.

    That makes me a bigger fan of him. Humble and no excuses. Seems to be rare now days.
