Jean Silva credits Fighting Nerds Gym prep work for UFC contract | DWCS 61

LAS VEGAS – The next step in Jean Silva’s career will be his official UFC debut.

After a unanimous decision win over Kevin Vallejos (11-1) that was more dominant than the scores might indicate, Silva (11-2) said his teammates and training partners at the Fighting Nerds Gym in Sao Paulo should get credit for having him ready to earn a UFC shot.

Silva talked about that and more after his fight at Tuesday’s DWCS 61 in Las Vegas.

Check out the full interview in the video above.
