In what will surely be a more competitive fight than the first, contender Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will face off against Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez.
While Velasquez seems to be practically unstoppable when healthy and fully trained moving with the speed and endurance of a Welterweight, Silva is no doubt much better and has improved in all areas since their last meeting just under a year ago.
Both fighters have flashed knockout power and solid conditioning. But that’s enough of what I think, check out this extended preview showcasing both fighters and what they’re bringing into this match. JDS vs Mark Hunt and Texeira vs Te Huna previews inculded.
