That's the FON! Santos is tough Silva got it @danawhite called that fight was gonna be a banger— Truck Gordon (@TruckMMA_UFC) March 13, 2022
And I'll say it once again, wrestling is the best base for MMA by far. Pereira has the edge in kickboxing in any matchup he has, but Bruno Silva was able to take him down when he had zero UFC takedowns coming in. Grappling takes years and years to improve.— Henry Cejudo (@HenryCejudo) March 13, 2022
