Claudio Henrique da Silva Discusses UFC Fight Night 37 Bout Against Brad Scott
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.08.2014

MMAjunkie recently interviewed UFC fighter Claudio Henrique da Silva who faces Brad Scott today at UFC Fight Night 37. Below are some highlights.

Da Silva on not making it onto The Ultimate Fighter: "I passed all the tests, but didn't get chosen at the end. I was a little hurt. I kept thinking I would never get to fight in the UFC. After I made an appearance at Super Fight League, I was nursing an injured arm while still under contract with them. That's when my manager called. He said I didn't get chosen for ‘TUF.' That's when I told him that my goal was to fight in the UFC, no matter what. A few weeks later, we received the contract."

His thoughts on living and training in London: "For sure, living in London and speaking English helped a lot. Not that I got here the easy way. My opponents were all very tough and had long fighting records with mostly wins. I didn't build up my record by crushing tomato cans, as a lot of fighters do. I even fought three times on the same night."

On his match-up with Brad Scott: "It will be a good fight. Brad likes to move forward. He's a proven warrior. He made it to the ‘TUF' finale, and he's had two UFC fights already. He's highly motivated. That's the kind of guy I like to face, though it doesn't matter who's across from me and that their credentials might be. I'm going there to win, which is what I always do."
