What did Thiago Silva (pictured) and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante have in common entering Saturday’s scrap in Brazil? Both were coming off drug suspensions, Silva for marijuana and Feijao for stanozolol metabolites.
The similarities ended there for the light heavyweights once the scrap started. Feijao came out with a fast and furious pace, while Silva saved his best for last.
When the dust settled on their shootout, Silva had Feijao unconscious on the canvas before the end of the first round.
The 205-pounders each won an extra $50,000 for “Fight of the Night,” while Silva also scored another $50K for “Knockout of the Night.”
Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil hosted Saturday’s show.
