Rafael Cavalcante guarantees stoppage of Thiago Silva

UFC light heavyweight Rafael Cavalcante has finished every opponent he’s beaten and is coming off a 33-second knockout of Mike Kyle last year later changed to a No Contest after “Feijao” failed a drug test. And, when it comes to Cavalcante’s bout this weekend with fellow Brazilian Thiago Silva, the 32-year old expects business as usual despite his foe’s ferocity and the duel serving as his Octagon debut.

“The fans can expect to see what I always do. I am going in to finish the fight and I am ready. They will see an aggressive fighter with a lot of will to fight,” said Cavalcante in a recent interview with the UFC’s website.

Though he’s planning on securing a submission or TKO at UFC on Fuel 10, Cavalcante made it clear he respects what Silva offers as an adversary.

“He is a complete fighter, good on the ground, good on his feet,” assessed Cavalcante. He is aggressive, a style similar to mine, and whenever he lost, he was fighting until the end.”

Cavalcante is 11-3 with ten knockouts notched on his record. Meanwhile, Silva holds an overall record of 14-3 with stoppages in all but one of his victories.
