Last night UFC Fight Night 62, came from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, where in the main event, welterweight Demian Maia put on a tactical clinic to cruise to a unanimous decision over Ryan LaFlare.
In the co-main event, Josh Koscheck suffered his fifth consecutive loss to Erick Silva via Guillotine Choke in the opening round. He is now faced with the ultimate decision, as to what is best for himself and his career. Whatever he decides, all I can say, is that it has been a pleasure for me, personally, to have watched him for the last ten years since TUF 1.
Controversy surrounded the Leandro Silva Vs. Drew Dober fight, due to the fact referee, Eduardo Herdy stopped the action mid fight just as Dober was about to escape Silva’s attempt at a Guillotine Choke (even the Brazilian fans were astonished). In light of these actions Dana White gave Dober his show money, and WIN money.
