In the second, Fitch landed a nice uppercut. But a Silva sweep took Fitch to the ground, and there, Silva looked to take the Indiana native's back. Looking for Fitch's right arm, Silva wasn't able to maintain and Fitch escaped momentarily. But after a brief time back on the feet, Silva got back to the ground and looked for a rear-naked choke. Fitch was able to separate Silva's hands to masterfully defend, then turned the bad position around and looked to ground-and-pound from the top.

Fitch then took Silva's back, and when his corner called for an armbar, Fitch quickly grabbed Silva's left arm and looked to finish as the clock ticked down. But Silva turned out of it and survived the second round.

In the third, Fitch landed an early takedown and Silva appeared to be out of gas. Fitch began pounding away from the top, then took Silva's back and landed more punches. Still, Silva survived. Then he reversed the position and got an arm-in guillotine, though Fitch quickly signaled to the referee he was fine. Then he began to land more punches from the top when Silva couldn't hold the choke. With 1:40 left in the fight, Fitch got to back mount and started hammering away.

Almost forgot Erick's last name was Silva. Had to do a double take at the thread title.

The line on this fight started off basically even, it was Silva as a slight favorite like -115ish for a while.

But currently the line is more in the Silva -180 to -190...absoutely crazy, can't believed he's favored by so much.

Part of me is wondering now though is if people betting late factored "Brazil standups" into their expectations.
