After two quick first-round submission victories from former TUF: Brazil competitors, the UFC switched the action to a great match up between MMA veteran Jason High and the Brazilian favorite Erick Silva in the welterweight division. High has been on a seven-fight win streak since his last loss, which came during his first UFC stint. He was looking to continue to roll against Silva, who was coming off of a loss to Jon Fitch in his last octagon appearance.
This came in to the night as one of the most anticipated bouts on the UFC on FUEL TV 10 card and both men came out looking to make a statement.
High opened up with a leg kick and a flashy spinning back kick, but Silva was able to stay at range and avoid any damage. After a few mixed shots, Silva was able to get High to the ground and aggressively work his way to the back of High before transitioning to an arm bar that quickly ended the fight.
It was yet another first-round submission win on the UFC on FUEL TV 10 main card.
Official time of the stoppage was at 1:11 in round one.
