UFC on FOX 23 Results: Jordan Johnson Out-Wrestles Luis Henrique da Silva

Luis Henrique da Silva is another big Brazilian who’s seen some success in the Octagon, but as always, the question everyone must solve when faced with a big American wrestler is sometimes a question not everyone has an answer to. Tonight, Henrique da Silva’s opponent is Jordan Johnson – the proverbial “big American wrestler” – what’s the Brazilian’s answer?

Apparently, Henrique da Silva’s answer is to get taken down. Round 1 sees Johnson score with his jab, and when his opponent tries to fire back, BOOM! goes the takedown. Henrique da Silva’s attempt to scramble up are met with a D’Arce choke attempt, and though he escapes, it isn’t long before Johnson has him down again. Repeat and rinse for Round 2 – did Henrique da Silva train any wrestling defense at all for this fight?

Round 3 has the Brazilian wearing his exhaustion like a cinder block around his neck, making every effort labored. Jordan, meanwhile, just does his wrestling thing, grinding away like it’s a Sunday afternoon in the park. Time expires and you just know who takes the decision.
