11:41 AM ET 11.28 | Erick Silva believes a tough weight cut was to blame for his poor cardio against Jon Fitch at UFC 153. "I won't permit it to happen again. I will be attentive to the weight, I will work it well. I won't have much on me by the end of the year. In the last fight, I thought that it would be better to get heavier in the final stages of training but afterwards I realized that it ended up making me more slow and tired. Now this is going to be a whole new ballgame," he says.
