Silva faces Kim on Wednesday…
Erick Silva recently talked about his upcoming fight with Dong Hyun Kim set for UFC Fight Night 29 on October 9. Below are some highlights:
Silva on his fighting style: "I have a very active and aggressive style. I've always had this approach and it's always complicated things for my adversaries. It's my nature. I'll keep doing it. It's always worked for me…If at any point I start believing I'm superior to my opponents, I'll quit training. I don't think that's ever going to happen. I always keep in mind that the UFC has the best fighters in the world and that I always have to try my hardest. I always have to think that my opponents are better than I am."
Silva's thoughts on Kim: "Dong Hyun Kim is a great athlete and he'll certainly nullify my game if I make any mistake. That's why I have to anticipate him and make him play my game. My strategy is to first bring him into my game, before he has the chance to do it to me."
Silva on blending tranquility with aggressiveness: "I blend tranquility with aggressiveness. The less time in the cage for me, the better. That's why I'm so aggressive. I'm hoping for a knockout."
