Rafael Cavalcante on Thiago Silva: I Can’t Wait, I’m In The Best Shape Of My Life


Rafael Cavalcante is a knockout artist in every sense of the word, winning all his 11 bouts by T/KO. Even the fights he has lost all ended within the distance, meaning Feijao has never had the pleasure of awaiting a judges decision. After a year of inactivity, Cavalcante will look to get back to the grind against Thiago Silva at UFC on Fuel TV this Saturday.

Pitting two knockout artists such as these two sluggers almost guarantees fireworks. Feijao will be looking to improve his record of 11-3 (1), while Silva’s tally stands at 14-3(1). The former Strikeforce Light-Heavyweight champion will also have the octagon jitters to overcome in his UFC debut.
