This Saturday, the UFC sets up shop on Chinese soil for the first time. And there, in China-administered Macau, Jiu-Jitsu black belt Thiago Silva (14w, 3l) will be looking to reencounter his winning ways.
The heavy hitter from São Paulo will be starring in the co-main event, facing Bulgaria’s Stanislav Nedkov (12w, 0l), another black belt in the gentle art. Thiago is coming off back-to-back losses and a no contest and is in dire need of a win to steer his career back on course.
To be fully prepared for the task, he put in grueling training at Florida, USA-based team the Blackzilians. Check out the exclusive GRACIEMAG.com video of the UFC star training to regain his musculature and drop this iron-chinned Nedkov when they meet this weekend.
