Erick Silva to appeal loss to Yancy Medeiros at UFC 212

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Erick Silva will appeal his loss to Yancy Medeiros at UFC 212.

According to his manager Gilberto Faria, Silva is seeking to overturn the result to a no-contest because they believe referee Eduardo Herdy stopped the fight prematurely.

“It’s the second time a referee made a bad call for an Erick Silva fight in Brazil,” Faria said. “We definitely need CABMMA (Comissão Atlética Brasileira de MMA) to take a deep look on this matter.”

Faria has already notified the Brazilian athletic commission of his intentions and plans on officially appealing the result next week.

Medeiros won the fight, held in Rio de Janeiro, via second-round TKO.

“A rematch would be the best option,” Faria said. “Let’s bring UFC to Hawaii and finish this fight.”
