Thiago Silva will square off against fellow KO specialist, Rafael Cavalcante, in a war of Brazilian sluggers at UFC on Fuel TV 10. 'Rei Da Marra' is without a win in his last four UFC outings, technically he did beat Stanislov Nedkov and Brandon Vera until he tested hot for banned substances following both fights. Factor in losses against Alexander Gusatfsson and Rashad Evans-Silva is 0-2 (2 NC) in his last four.
Needless to say, Silva needs a win very badly tonight. His challenge is renowned KO artist Feijao Cavalcante, so no small task by any stretch of the imagination. Silva will need to have a great training camp and mindset ahead of this fight, because it's going to be a tough night if he has not put in the work. Feijao is a beast, when he is on form, finishing all of his victims by KO.
