Ben Saunders to face Erick Silva at UFC Fight Night 62 in Brazil

Ben Saunders has come back to the UFC finishing his last two opponents in a combined three minutes and 15 seconds.

Saunders (16-6-2) went 4-3 in his first stint in the UFC, then going on to fight once in the WEF and the majority of his career to Bellator, where he accrued an 8-3 record. He returned to the UFC defeating Chris Heatherly with an omoplata, then defeating Joe Riggs via TKO in the first when Riggs suffered a neck injury.

Silva (17-5, 1 NC) continues his roller coaster in the UFC. He wins a fight, then loses one. Silva, now 5-4 in the UFC, will look to finally put together back-to-back wins in his 10th fight in the UFC. The welterweights will battle it out on March 21 in what is stacking up to be a great card. Here is the card so far:

  • Urijah Faber vs. Raphael Assuncao
  • Demian Maia vs. Ryan LaFlare
  • Josh Thomson vs. Gilbert Burns
  • Erick Silva vs. Ben Saunders
  • Matt Wiman vs. Leondro Santos
  • Cain Carrizosa vs. Leandro Mafra Texeira
  • Drew Dober vs. Leandro Silva
