UFC light heavyweight contender Thiago Silva meets up with Karyn Bryant in a Fuel TV interview to discuss his huge first round knockout over Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante last night. Cavalcante appeared to be getting the better of Silva initially, but the tides were turned by a brutal late flurry from Silva.
The fight was a big boost for Silva, who earned both Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night bonuses for his performance. After having his last two wins turned to no-contests, he was in need of an impressive victory.
He noted that he simply listened to his team of coaches when the going got tough, and used patience to eventually find his opening. Who should be next for Thiago Silva at 205?
